Last minute goal stops us gaining a vital three points


Following the dip against Cranleigh this was a great chance to get three points against rock bottom tongham. We needed a big performance.

The game started well with Worplesdon on the front foot Larch scoring with a neat touch and finish in their box the boy knows where the net is. Then a long ball forward saw the worplesdon defence turn to jelly as the tongham forward ended up with the ball in front of the static keeper. 1-1

From the kick off three passes and wardle was in a neat finish from the wide man 2-1. From here surely worplesdon would control the game. worplesdon contiued to dominate the game. Then a long clearance from the tongham centre half and not again surely not again. The tongham forward is one on one with our stand in keeper and again the ball is in the net 2-2.

The blame game has started everyone is at each other, the tongham boys can't believe their luck two chances two goals and they can smell blood our backline is like the white cliffs of dover eroding fast!!

Then on the lush concrete surface we continue to try to play out only to get caught on the ball a little ball into the unmarked forward he shoots owe yes its 3 in 3 for the boy all his christmases have come at once 3-2 half time.

Following a half time roasting from the hungry horse worplesdon look embarrassed.

From the kick off worplesdon are quick to put the pressure on Tongham a great ball in from the right allows tegg to arrow a header into the top left corner 3-3.

Worplesdon are in the accendency larch and blason both missing chances and tackling each other. Then a moment of magic possibly the best goal i have ever seen. Without a shadow, goal of the season. The ball is headed out at the front post it drops to curran on the edge of the 18 yard box who proceeds to jump with both feet off the ground he then di canios the ball into the top left corner!! What a goal great technique great player!!

4-3 Tongham have had the fluff knocked out of there feathers. Then tegg wins the ball on the half way line playing a one two with keiran then knocking the ball into the bottom corner. 5-3 to Worplesdon 10 mins to go this one is over.

From the kick off Tongham get a free kick which is played short the cross then misses everyone and goes in off the post. Unbelievable 5-4 they are back in it.

20 seconds to go a long ball forward from tongham curran misses it, bezza where is bezza surely pernass can clear it no the forward has got special powers he is in again one on one and yes the same outcome a bigger club will be looking at this boy he shoots he scores the ron jeremy of Tongham 5-5 can you believe it.

Lets hope things improve next week!
