Good game in tough conditions
A windy morning saw us welcome our Wiltshire neighbours for what is always an entertaining game. A closely fought 1st period saw the home team claim the spoils after good pressure from Archie Mannix created a goal in the last minute.
The home side extended the lead in the 2nd period when Sam Hughes' well-struck free kick caught the wind beautifully and literally flew into the top corner for 2-0.
But FC Wiltshire came out strongest in the 3rd period and they halved the deficit when they were quickest to react to a partial clearance from a well taken free kick and poked home from close range.
So with the score at 2-1 to Wiltshire Football Academy, it was very much all to play for going into the 4th period. FC Wiltshire quickly drew level with a well-worked short corner and then both teams battled hard to try to find the crucial 3rd goal. With 5 minutes remaining, it was the visitors who broke the deadlock and then with the home team forced to commit resources forward, extended the lead with a minute left to seal a 4-2 win.
As always when we play FC Wiltshire, an entertaining game with some good football played by both sides and we look forward to the return fixture!
