A strangely unusual game as Wembley had slightly more possession in the first half, more dangerous half chances and look the better side.  They were very combative and forceful in the second half without any real threat leaving the Wares to mix it up with periods of good possession and some good counter attacks which ultimately got a point. The Wares were the better team in the second half.  Wembley had 7 shots of which 4 were on target in addition to the free kick that led to the goal. The Wares had 10 shots with 5 on target and a blinding strike for the goal.

 

On 3 minutes Benavides shot straight at keeper and with that gone it was very much a midfield battle with no real chances but still an entertaining game. On 27 a long range free kick from George is fumbled by the keeper and nearly goes in and then on 32 another free kick from George is tipped over by the keeper. A crucial moment on 37 minutes as Wembley step up to take a free kick that goes under the wall for Greg, who does well to get down to the ball but he was just unable to clasp it and the ball slips out of his grip to a very quick and alert Wembley no9 to lift it into the goal from a tight angle.  

 

HT: 0-1

 

Greg is called into action almost immediately from the start of the half with a tame shot at goal. Wembley started well and on 54 there was some good play by Wembley which results in a shot that flies wide. 1o minutes in and there was a double sub for the Wares as Tom and Ethan are on for Lolu and Will. Shortly after on 61  as the two subs get used to the game Greg pulls off another good save. Another sub for the Ware on 68 as Denis comes on for Steven. Wares have quite a bit of possession at this point without any real penetration. However, with about 20 minutes left the Wares really start to build momentum. On 71 a good pressure leads to a couple of good half chances and finally on 90+1 Goooooooooaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!! as a ball from George is fed to Tyriq who smashes the ball home.

 

FT: 1-1
