A very strange game where 2 goal keeping errors were responsible for the match result. A game the Wares should have won given the chances and possession.

 

The Wares got off to an excellent start with several chances and one on target by Ethan in the first 15 minutes. Cockfosters only managed one shot off target in that time. The opposition came into the game ofter that and had several free kicks gifted to them by committing silly fouls. One such free kick was in the 17th minute about 2 yards wide of Alfie’s right hand post just outside the box. The free kick was taken and went just over a gaping whole on the nearside. A replica free kick was given 5 minutes later in exactly the same circumstance but this time no mistake 0-1. The Wares got back into the game and created a few more chances before half time. 

 

HT - 0–1

   

The start of the second half saw a change in personnel with Sam coming off for Dan Pett. The game for the next 15 minutes or so is even and fought in midfield without any real threat either end where Marksy picks up a caution. On 60 minutes  Cockfosters put some pressure on and make it pay after Alfie gives the ball away and the Wares are punished 0-2. Changes are made as Ryan makes way for Mikkel just after the goal. From then on Cockfosters work very hard to stop the Wares. The game was very much a one sided affair from then. Ethan made way for Stanley in the 77th minutes and more pressure was put on the Cockfosters goal. It took until the 94th minute however to break through with a Dan Pett header 1-2. Too late as that was the last kick of the game.

 

FT - 1-2
