Wednesfield 10:0 Stonnall Phoenix
Table toppers Wednesfield deservedly won this game outclassing Stonnall Phoenix.
On a windy day on the home side’s 3G pitch, the result was probably never in doubt as Wednesfield are clearly in a different class, but what you would want is for the Stonnall lads to play with honesty and dignity, to keep their shape and discipline. This was certainly achieved despite conceding a lot of goals.
The artificial surface and windy conditions meant that a quick, short passing brand of football was the order of the day and Wednesfield are accomplished proponents of this. They played through Stonnall’s lines with incisive one-twos and triangles which meant that the Phoenix defence of Joe, Nathan, Jack and Dillan had their hands full for much of the game. The lads played well, but any little error was pounced upon effectively with fast pace.
When Phoenix were able to string a few passes together, it was their trademark attractive passing football. Wednesfield though,were very strong in regaining possession and when they broke they did so in numbers putting constant pressure on the visitors.
Despite the eventual scoreline, Alfie kept his concentration and made several excellent saves throughout the game. Up front, Tyreece came on to join the industrious Ben and provided a spark linking well with the midfield showing strength and pace.
It was 4:0 at halftime and the home went on to score six more in the second half but although it’s likely to be Stonnall Phoenix’s heaviest defeat this season, it is by no means Wednesfield’s biggest win and they should deservedly go on to win the league.
