OWFC on 8th April 2017: W2 D1 L3 GF16 GA20 GD-4
April showers? Not this weekend, as the majority of the match reports reference we experienced unseasonably warm weather. The sunshine clearly had an impact as we were treated to an average of 6 goals a game, ruining most peoples Togger predictions. It also got peoples creative juices flowing as we have match reports from every game played.
We start with the 8s who were playing Old Blues. Going in to the game the 8s were 1 place and 3 points behind them so a win was vital. Thankfully they had their scoring boots on as they ran out 6-0 winners with school boy Kris Page getting his first hat trick for the Old Wilsoinans. The win moves the 8s up to 7th with three games to play, starting with next weeks Unclasico against the 9s on Hayes.
The 4s were the only other OWFC side to win this weekend. They recovered from last weeks defeat to top of the table Polytechnic by beating Alleyn Old Boys 2-1. Sam James' 23rd goal of the season, which will probably see him finish as OWFC top scorer this season, helped them to a 2-1 win which guarantees them a 4th placed finish in the league.
The 3s played their first game in the Spring Cup and were taking on AFC Oldsmiths. Trailing 3-1 at the break a double from James Karamath pulled them level, only for Oldsmiths to make it 4-3 shortly after which a controversial goal. With time running out Karamath was able to complete his hat trick ensuring the game ended in a draw. The 3s take on Old Wokingians in the last game of the Spring Cup next weekend.
And so to the defeats...The 1st XI travelled to Old Parkonians and game up against a side battling at the bottom of the table. With little to play for the 1s clearly struggled for motivation as the fell to a 3-1 defeat, the only goal coming from centre-back turned striker - Jalen Gravesande. The 6s faced runaway league leaders Carshalton with a make shift team. They were narrowly edged out in a close encounter, losing 8-1, Elliot Tiffin scoring the only goal. The 7s made the short trip to third placed Acton, where another makeshift side faced a difficult challenge. A slightly closer game than the 6s saw Acton run out 4-2 winners despite being reduced to 10 men.
