Halls Reserves

Sevenoaks League Division 1 10th March 2012 @ 14:00 Raley's Field

Wilderpark got back to winning ways with their fifth league victory in a row after defeating Halls AFC Reserves 4-1 at Raleys Field.

Trailing to an early goal, Wilderpark scored two stunning first half goals to put them into the ascendency and at a point when they did not look back.

Park’s first goal was a tremendous shot from 30 yards by James Hagon which appeared to curve at a critical point and the ball clipped the right upright before entering the net. Soon afterwards an excellent move and a clinical shot by Paul Burgess crashed into the net over the visitor’s goalkeeper.

Halls countered for a while but found both Steve Henniker at right full back and the returning Neil Cutts on the other side in excellent form. Both full backs linked up well with Alex David and Leon Lloydrespectively getting forward to supplement the attack.

Another misunderstanding, following the opening Halls goal, between Steve Burgess and Christian Esposito almost let in a visiting forward but the keeper recovered well to prevent any further score.

At the start of the second half Halls came out determined to get back into the game but with the Park closing down quickly they found progress difficult, attacks invariably breaking down in and around the 18 yard area.

Park went further ahead when following a cross into the penalty area a Halls defender headed passed his goalkeeper and into the corner of the net. Victory was finally sealed when the opposing keeper came well outside his area in an attempt to clear the ball and lost possession in a 50/50 tackle withMark Taylor. The ball came loose and Taylor was able to take the ball forward and slot it in to the empty net for 4-1.
