A little piece of history repeating...

More goals, more joy...

The 6s took the short trip to Redbridge for an away game against the bottom of the league side.
However, this was no time for compacency, with last seasons results suggesting this was going yo be a tight match.
Wapping started the game well with immediate pressure leading to an early goal. A good finish at the far post set the standard for the rest of the half. Consistent pressure resulted in chances coming throughout the half, with solid defending from Jez, Ollie Matt & Freddie keeping the Redbridge attack to a few rare chances on breaks. Goals soon came, and Wapping went in 3-0 up at half time, a scoreline that could easily have been more with some good saves from their keeper.

The second half looked to start the same way, with another early Wapping goal. However, the game started to become more fragmented after several wasted chances. DC briiliantly stole the ball to go 1 on 1 with their keeper, spurning an easy pass he dinked the ball straight into the lepper...
Shortly later Ben swung and missed the ball a whole 2 feet from the goal. It was a second half of missed chances...
Redbridge stole a goal back on the break to make it 4-1, with an overloaded defence of just Olie & Jez failing to stop them getting the chance to bury an unstoppable shot into the back of the net...
However the chances kept coming for Wapping and another goal to make it 5-1 at the end was only a just reward...

The 6s as building well and this could easily have been a basketball score. More to take to the next game...
