U16 Championship – Milford Pumas 5  vs Walton Casuals Wolves 2

A streamline Wolves side pushed the self-destruct button and blew this game inside a crazy 3 minute spell just before the end of a first half they’d dominated, and looked by far the better side – but from nowhere found themselves 3-0 down at the break.  Before then, neither side had really fancied the points – which for Wolves would have been their first of the season.
At the start of the second half, remnants of the recent comeback against Teddington looked promising, but with Bailey struggling with injury, Nathan was forced to take the keeper gloves, and a re-shuffle in the back 3 was required. Milford soon wrapped up the game with a 4th, but Wolves still fancied a comeback, Joe pulled one back with a great shot, but Milford re-opened that 4 goal cushion from a corner. Nathan tipped over a free-kick to prevent any further damage, and with Ben and James pressing up front, they forced an own-goal in the last few seconds, but Wolves’ dreadful run of results continued, without really putting in a poor performance all season.
Some key tackles and a firm solid showing from Brendan gave him man of the match.
Wolves starting team; Bailey, Nathan, Harry, Brendan, Seb, Nathaniel, Chris, Leo, James, Ben, Joe.  Sub used Braydon.
