A game with fairly even sides but 2 set pieces and a back pass leading to goals adding to this severals missed chances gives you an unbalanced scoreline. The Wares had 14 shots at goal to Leverstock’s 8 of which on target were 6 to 5 respectively. Possession statistics were fairly even. 

 

Leverstock started slightly the brighter side within the first 15 minutes and despite the Wares having 2 attempts at goal Leverstock were given a free kick 35 yards out to score from. This was floated to the back post to allow a Leverstock player climb unchallenged to head it into the net. The Wares evened out the possession and territory statistics and increased the tally for attempts at goal with Benavides and James both forcing the keeper into action. The last 15 minutes was a scrappy affair with more free kicks than anything else and a yellow card for Walsh. Towards the end of the half Lolu had an attempt at goal as did Leverstock shortly after.  

 

HT - 1–0

   

The Wares started the second half the stronger side as Benavides had an attempt at goal and Beech forcing the keeper into another save. In the 60th minute Thomas came on for Carruthers, Benavides was brought more central for Thomas to go out wide. Shortly after Benavides fires one at goal from distance without success. With the Wares in control of the game  on 67 minutes feed a back pass into the Leverstock striker’s feet for him to run with the ball into the box and tuck the ball into the near post 2-0. Mfinda on for James on 69 minutes as a straight swap. Levertstock then on 70 minutes have a free kick 35  yards out on their left wing which was whipped in and flicked on into the back of the net 3-0. Lolu shot on 78 minutes to forces a clearance off the line. Moments later Anum comes on for Benavides and the wares continue to dominate. In the last moments the Wares have another shot and Lolu picks up a yellow for a late challenge and Leverstock force double reaction saves from Davies that would have otherwise given Leverstock a ridiculous scoreline to celebrate.

 

FT - 0–3
