Thriller on the ‘Rec.

Painswick u11 5 Ashelworth Woodpeckers 3 (aet)

The first round of the cup brought Ashelworth to the ‘rec. for the first time to face a Painswick side growing in confidence and composure with each match.

Painswick started at a breakneck pace and were quickly two ahead as Tom smashed a loose ball into the top corner following an incisive passing move and Ollie fed James for a clinical finish. With Ben and Dyana capably dealing with each opposition attack it was beginning to have the look of a long morning for the Woodpeckers.

Painswick piled forward in a bid to end the game as a contest before half-time as the shell shocked Woodpeckers desperately tried to cling on. The waves of attack however, were leaving holes at the back and almost inevitably a quick break threw the Woodpeckers the lifeline they needed.

Incredibly, within minutes the scores were level as gaps behind the Painswick back-line were once again exploited to devastating effect by the fast breaking Woodpeckers.

As half time approached the tide was fully turned as Woodpeckers completed an amazing turnaround to take the lead. If the first two goals had been partially self inflicted, a passing interchange down the right followed by a low ball across the six yard box turned in at the far post hammered home the message that this would not be a stroll in the sun for the home side.

Half Time

Painswick 2 Woodpeckers 3

One can only guess the content of Dave and Carlos’ half-time team talk but the second half began with Painswick taking a more measured approach and retaining their shape more effectively.

With Joe inspiring confidence at the back Painswick began to regain their composure and put together some slick passing moves which started to yield chances of an equaliser. As the half wore on the pressure grew with each minute as Bob and Elliot dug deep and began to overwhelm the Woodpeckers midfield with what seemed to be sheer willpower and passion.

Though the chances came the crucial goal would not as Tom fired into the side netting, James’ improvised overhead kick went close and Elliot’s piledriver was saved at the near post. At the other end Will had to be quick of his line as Woodpeckers burst through again.

With time running out the crucial breakthrough finally came as James netted to convert at the end of another surging move by the Painswick midfield.

Extra time began with the temperature rising and the crowd exhorting both teams to new levels of effort – the pattern however remained the same, with Bob and Elliot running themselves into the ground and using the ball intelligently the Woodpeckers midfield was pushed deeper and deeper as the home pressure mounted. The inevitable breakthrough arrived just before half time as James completed his hatrick.

Woodpeckers bravely tried to salvage the match but had no answer to the stamina, willpower and energy of the home side and with two minutes remaining Tom netted to secure a fantastic win.

Man of the Match: Ben (calm and collected at the back)
