An excellent game in which the Wares dominate for the majority of the game with a peculiar start and a moment of madness as far as Edgware Town are concerned.

 

Ampthill come out the traps fast and furious and make the first inroads with a shot off target from distance. On 8 minutes a long ball is played over the top, one bounce for the striker to control it and strike it across Sam into the far bottom corner 1-0. 2 minutes later Mikkel latches on to a ball and tries to lob the keeper, the ball hits the inside of the post and ends at Ivan’s feet who can’t get it out from under him fast enough before defence recover. With a quarter of an hour gone Dan Pett was brought down in the penalty area. Ball on the spot and despatched into the back of the net by Dan himself 1-1. Minutes later Ivan forces the keeper into a save. Ampthill centre half goes off injured and several other shots from Ivan, Rio and Mikkel are straight at the keeper. On 37 minutes Mikkel meets a corner to head into goal 1-2. The Wares continue to play well and have more opportunities at goal.  

 

HT - 1–2

 

In the space of 5 minutes into the second half Tomasz has two and Ivan has one shot on goal both off target. Wares continue to dominate and camp in the Ampthill half. Ampthill try to change things up with a double substitution but to no real avail. On 59 Ivan makes way for Stanley and within 5 minutes manages a shot off target. 70 minutes in Ethan comes on for Mikkel. After another shot from Dan a third substitution is made and Claudio comes on for Tomasz. Several minutes of play later where the Wares moved the ball around, put in several crosses and dominated possession a ball was sent out wide right and then crossed low in front of the 6 yard area for a charging Ethan coming in at the back post to smash the ball into the keepers top righthand corner 1-3. The game ends with the ball in Wares possession.
