It was a hard fought win, poor first half but the goal just before half time gave the Wares a massive lift and the second half was much better and evenly matched. End to end stuff with Colney pressing and the Wares working on the break. 

 

After 3 minutes Lolu goes through but shoots wide. On 7 minutes there’s a total mix up in the Wares defence allowing London Colney to have a shot but it is cleared off the line. 8 gone and London Colney hit the post and the rebound shot is saved by Greg. 14 gone and some good work by Lolu who sets up Ivan but blazes over. 17 gone again sloppy play by the Wares and Greg saves well. On 24 minutes London Colney have a shot that loops up and just goes wide. On 25 some good play by the Wares sees Machado’s shot blocked. A minute later and no 9 rolls Ferg but shoots over and straight after another good save from Greg. 33 gone Ivan shoots after a good break and with 44 on the clock Gooooaaaaalllll the Wares have finally scored a goal after four and a half games Machado lashed a loose ball into the net. 

 

HT - 1–0

 

A relatively poor start to the first half but the Wares slowly grew into the game and took the lead shortly before half time and maybe against the run of play and London Colney could count themselves unlucky to be one down after missing several good chances and it took 53 before anything really much happened with a poor clearance from Perry which presented the London Colney no9 with a chance but he shoots wide. On 57 some good work from the Wares and Flannery shot but wide. In the 76th minutes with London Colney pressing for an equaliser the Wares defended well. 78 in and Benavides shoots but is deflected for a corner. In the closing minutes it was end to end stuff as London Colney pressed for a point and the Wares break. No substitutions, no cautions but 3 points.  

 

FT - 1-0
