OWFC on 11th & 15th April 2017: W3 D0 L3 GF17 GA13 GD4
You may have missed this weekend's big game. No it wasn't Man Utd vs Chelsea, it was of course our very own Classico on Hayes, 8s vs 9s. The 9s were in search of their first league point of the season while the 8s had their sights set higher up the table. Having witnessed large periods of the game I can't say it will go down in the history books as a classic, with the 9s missing a number of good chances to take the lead. Eventually the 8s superior quality showed and they ran out 3-0 winners with goals from Dixon, Page and Kurns and two assists from Adams, E.
Also on Hayes the 1s took on newly crowned AFA Cup winners and Senior Div 1 champions elect Polytechnic. After a close encounter in Chiswick earlier in the season their was some optimism ahead of the game. However, Poly showed their quality from the start and made their significant height advantage count from an early corner. The 1s then faced an onslaught for the rest of the half but held firm to go in at half time only 1-0 down. Unfortunately the break didn't change anything. Healy made a good save early in the second half but was unable to do anything about Poly's second or third goal. While Nottsborough can still mathematically catch Poly it seems highly unlikely that they will stop them completing the league and cup double.
The 3s have put their league dissapointment behind them as they progressed to the semi-finals of the Spring Cup. A 5-1 victory away to Old Wokingians saw James Karramath bag a hat trick for the second consecutive week. In a match dominated by the 3s they had to ensure a 3 goal margin to progress to the semi's and this proved no issue with Mackley and Highwood grabbing the other goals.
The 5s faced City of London in the Spring Cup. There were plenty of goals to please the neutrals but unfortunately the 5s ended up on the wrong side of a 5-4 scoreline. Goals from Eves, Godwin and a brace from Roberts wasn't enough.
And finally the 2s faced local ricals West Wickham in midweek and put a serious dent in their title hopes while also moving them out of the bottom two. Goals from Giles and Carruthers sealing a vital 2-1 win.
