M1 draw 4-4 with Peterborough

End-to-End 8 goal thriller to draw with strong opposition

Wapping Men's 1st team headed to Peterborough for what would be a closely matched 70 minutes. Wapping were slow to get going in the first 15 minutes with Peterborough having the run of play. After a short corner was given, Peterborough took first blood with a well taken drag flick into the far left hand side of the goal, leaving keeper Joe Trickett scrambling (1-0).

Not to shy away from a challenge, Wapping fought back with shots from Ollie Bull and eventually breaking down the defence for a field goal from Ollie Salvesen (1-1). Before the half was out Peterborough continued to show a strong threat in and around the Wapping ‘D’, which lead to them making it 2-1.

Half time gave coach Harry time to compose the boys to stay positive for the second half… after all, 35 minutes is a long time to turn the game around.

Wapping returned to the field for the second half with a new found energy putting Peterborough under a lot of pressure. A great team effort to the start of the half and a special mention to Ben Bull for a Man of the Match performance saw Wapping equalise and push on to take the score line to 4-2. These 3 goals within 20 minutes came from scorers, Matt Seddon, Jonny Madill and a short corner from captain Will Cairns.

Wapping continued to play well with Will Cairns dribbling down the length of the pitch needing no protection from the umpire as he shook off numerous poor tackles attempting to spoil the play. Unfortunately, Wapping’s lead was a false sense of security with 10 long minutes still left to play. Peterborough managed to score early after a good save from Joe Trickett bobbled to a player at the back post to put in.

At the nail biting end of the game Peterborough were given a series of penalty corners that were initially well defended. The last of the three was finally put away leaving the score 4-4 and Wapping taking an away point from one of Prem A’s stronger opposition.

See you next week at the Lea Valley Colosseum, as they take on Ipswich.
