Alphington AFC v Elmore AFC


Eagles flying at The Chronicles.

A lovely evening for football, turned out to be a good evening for Elmore, as we ran out 5-1 winners at Alphington.
They did themselves no favours either in the second half as a bad challenge on Jamie Mudge saw their 1st player sent off, closely followed by their 2nd receiving his marching orders in the melee that followed.
We dominated most of the game restricting our hosts to few chances in each half. But as with other games, lapses in concentration were present and always giving a chance to the opposition to make their mark on the game
We started well, after 5 minutes a superb Lucas White throughball found Kieran Rapo racing clear to open our account form a tight angle. 1-0 to Elmore.
Shortly after and Daniel Tapp found himself space from a corner, but unfortunately headed over from close range.
On 19 minutes, more pressure told as some good work from wide right by Jordan Bastin, and a lovely crossed ball to the far post found Ian Patchett, who headed back over the keeper who couldn’t quite keep it out. 2-0 Elmore.
31 minutes gone, and Jamie Mudge cuts the ball back to the edge of the box from wide, finding Isaac Furness who volleyed a superb waist high left footer into the net. 3-0 Elmore.
On 42 minutes more pressure down our right wing, and Jordan Bastin slides a neat ball into the box to find Lucas White, who controlled and layed a lovely weighted ball for Jamie Mudge to fire across goal and into the far corner. 4-0 elmore.
A moment of taking our foot off the pedal before half time, and on 44 minutes Alphington found themselves with space in our box, and a lovely turn and shot beats Aidan Barrett in goal to reduce the arrears and give our hosts a glimmer of hope. 4-1.
Half time came and a chance for both teams to regroup.
The 2nd half started with a flurry, as on 49 minutes alphington pressed early, and a bouncing ball in our box saw a high foot penalised with a penalty, probably not the best advantage played by the official as the ball found its way to a waiting Alphington at the far post to tuck neatly into the corner, but denied by a sharp whistle from the referee. Unfortunately for our hosts it didn’t get any better as Aidan Barrett pulled off a fine save low to his right to deny them their goal.
Minutes later and things went from bad to worse for Alphington, as a bad challenge on Jamie Mudge resulted in a red card, and that was closely followed by a 2nd home player receiving his marching orders for what’s was apparently grabbing around the throat, and leaving them with 9 players left on the field.
On 58 minutes, and if any doubt was in the scoreline, a superb ball forward from Isaac Furness was taken down well by Jesse Howe, who drove at the heart of the box from wide, only to see his shot saved and parried out to a waiting Jamie Mudge who fired home from the edge of the 18 yard box. 5-1 and well and truly put to bed.
To be fair to Alphington even after going down to 9 men, and probably even more so after that, they never stopped working hard, and still pushed to create chances.
We also had 2 goals disallowed in the later minutes of the 2nd half for an apparent off side, and also a foul on the keeper for kicking the ball out of his hands that he didn’t actually have hold of.
We went close on many other occasions, but just couldn’t find the cutting edge to add to our tally, and the game petered out to finish with a 5-1 scoreline to Elmore.
Another decent performance, but still a long way to go in the league, and many more hard games to play.
None more so than our away trip to Axminster Town this weekend, another tough game to test the squad, and hopefully we can bring back another 3 points for the league.
Any support from our supporters would be greatly appreciated by the lads, and hopefully we can give them a game to enjoy on some superb playing facilities....
