The Badgers produce a sterling first half performance but can't sustain it against a rampant Walsall Wood

Wood run out worthy 6-0 victors to dampen Brocton's spirits.

Tuesday 14th November
Brocton 0 Walsall Wood 6

To say that this was a game of two halves would be an understatement given the final score. In the first half Brocton matched their league title contending opponents and were good value for the 0-0 score line at half time.
There were plenty of glimpses of Wood’s abilities, but Brocton were able to counter them and even mount threats on goal of their own. Paul McMahon, the spearhead of Brocton’s attack was within a whisker of scoring on a number of occasions. On 24 minutes Dan Lomas set a ball ahead of him into the box which was inches beyond McMahon’s stretch and gathered by visiting keeper Lloyd Ransome. On 30 minutes McMahon provided Joe Hartshorne with a chance and this time whilst shaping to shot, the speed of reaction from Wood’s defence showed their quality as the attempt was smothered. Moments later McMahon had another glimpse of goal but could not get the shot away.
When Brocton’s passing play in attack did undo the Wood defence a collision between two members of that defence was severe enough for the referee to halt play and for the second time in just three days a contested drop ball was the outcome. A rare sight these days.
The second half was a different story altogether. A slightly mistimed tackle in the box was enough to give away an uncontroversial penalty and Paul Sullivan duly converted. If that was harsh on Brocton, the understandable but naive attempt by the Badgers to then go to all out attack was a disaster.
Walsall Wood were, from that moment on, the beneficiaries of that gung ho approach and punished the home side unmercifully. Two further goals from Sullivan completed his hat trick before it looked like Peter Till who finished off a goal mouth scramble and then accepted an easy tap in after a defensive mistake. The goal of the night came at the death when full back Craig Deakin foraged right from the back and carved out this own chance, completing rout.
It will be difficult for the Badgers, but they must try to remember the first half performance against a very good side and not dwell on what were mostly errors under pressure, taking that into the games coming up.
