A very good first half and deserved the lead good play and several attempts to go further ahead. The second half was mainly Colney’s but the Wares were resolute and produce several good counter attacking moves and one that produced the winner.

Goal! First minute screamer by the former Football League and Edgware Town player Scott McGleish 0-1. The ball fell kindly at the edge of the box on the lefthand side taken first time the ball flew past the keeper into the far side netting. McGleish then has another attempt but off target in the 6th minute. Colney then break way in the 11th minute for the number 11 to fire an attempt off target. McGleish has another attempt in the 18th. Harsini shoots in the 26th but is blocked by an opponent and goes for a corner. McGleish again off target in the 26th from the resulting corner headers over the bar. 3 minutes later McGleish shots but straight to the keeper. McGleish and Benavides both have attempts in the 35th and Benavides strikes at the keeper from a corner in the 38th. Colney shoot off target in the last minute of the first half from a good move.

 

HT: 0-1

 

Colney piled on the pressure from the start. Wave after wave Colney tried to penetrate the Edgware defence and it took 8 minutes to do. With confusion reigning when the Wares were pressing and looking for a second the play broke down and the Colney keeper reacted quickly to strike a long ball that bounced over the defence for the forward to latch on to and hit home. Sunday League some might say 1-1. The pressure kept coming but it was always unlikely that 2 simple errors were going be made. Page cam on for McGleish in the 62nd minute which started a bit of a resurgence with Pett in the 64th having a go but with no result. Colney make a double substitution in the 66th. The game emend out a little and on the 71st Page takes a ball from the outside left drives in and smacks a 30 yarder to hit the back of the net at the far post 1-2. Shirley- Clark and Taylor pick up yellows late on the in the game as they try delay tactics which ultimately seem to work.

 

FT: 1-2
