Wapping 2's V Sudbury 1's
The 6th game of the season saw Wapping L2 head to Sudbury for a top table clash on a very grey afternoon start.
Sudbury was sitting top of the league with Wapping on 4th spot. A fast start for the home side with an early corner signalled Sudbury's intent, but the Wapping defence soon settled down after a few early exchanges. Wapping soon started to exert pressure, with 3 corners in quick succession, well defended by Sudbury. Sudbury were soon the more rattled team, with Wapping maintaining possession and passing it well round the back and through the midfield. The best chance in the first half also fell to Wapping, with a great ball down the right starting with Jess Sturgeon who found Lou Song who had a sharp shot at goal, and the Sudbury keeper had to produce a good save. A further 2 corners for Wapping came to nothing, and the team's went in 0-0 at half time.
Second half saw Sudbury piling the pressure with 2 early corners. Sudbury also changed their tactics, moving to a high press and more forward forceful attacking play. Wapping were resolute, shutting out 3 more corners. Sudbury had a disallowed goal, as it came of a Sudbury foot from a clearance of Mooch. More attacking play from the left saw yet another corner for Sudbury, and this time they converted. 1-0 Sudbury. It was now time for Wapping to look for the equaliser and with 10 minutes to go Wapping began to pick their passes and march up the field. Sudbury were able to absorb the relentless attacks and the game ended 1-0. A disappointing result for the ladies 2's however Captain Hoff commented " I couldn't be prouder of the team's performance this week, we used the transfer well and built up play from the back which is something we have been working hard on at training, now if we could only convert our short corners we will be unstoppable".
Man of the match Mutsa Mutembwa, who with the team kept the top table team at bay.
