ST BENETS WASPS U9A played their final game of the season at home to a battling Mutford side.
Wasps took the lead following a good pass from Will, after good play involving nearly every member of the team. Wasps then quickly added a second, following a great passing move between Harvey and Kobe to put Tom through, who made no mistake with the finish. Stand-in keeper, Josh, dealt with everything thrown at him, but a mix-up in defence allowed
Mutford back into the game. Harvey put in three excellent corners and Tom was unlucky not to score with a header. Alex U then put Owen through to score Wasps’ third with a brilliant low strike. Mutford then rallied and were awarded a penalty following a tangle in the box, but it was saved by Josh. William then released Harvey, who played Owen in to finish with a delicate lob over the keeper to effectively seal the game. Alex U went close to making it five with good individual skills, but his shot hit the side netting. Final score: Wasps 4, Mutford 1. Ady and John want to thank all the lads for their hard work and for helping new players settle in, and to all parents for the continued support to all the boys, whether they win, lose or draw.
Bungay Town U15 ended their season with a 2-1 win over Gorleston Rangers B in a superb match, who themselves ended as league champions with Bungay in third spot. Bungay had several chances in a goalless first half. Callum hit the angle of post and bar to go closest, but Gorleston also hit the woodwork twice and Elliot in the Bungay pulled off some vital saves. After the break Bungay took the lead when Jake was felled and Callum curled the free-kick home from just outside the area. They went further ahead when another Callum free-kick was spilled and Sam was on hand to prod home. Gorleston immediately burst through the middle to pull one back, but Bungay held out and conjured up more chances late on.
