Le Mousehole 4 Sticker 0
Sticker bowed out of the WCP cup beaten by a strong foreign Mousehole side who played some lovely football and they were matched by a very youthful Sticker team but as has happened on more than a couple of occasions this season when Mousehole were awarded a dubious penalty which was duly smashed home. 0-1. Before this Sticker had three chances to take the lead and should have scored at least one of these if only to give the team some well deserved confidence but when the lucks against you etc.etc However after this setback they still matched the French imports with some delightful football only for the attacks to breakdown when a quck pass would have made the difference. Mousehole added a second when their speedy left winger was sent a defence splitting pass and headed for goal and with a smart shot placed the ball into the far corner With Ethan unable to push it away. 0-2. H/T.
The second half started and Mousehole still pressing and Sticker defending and trying to get forward whenever they could but again the attacks continued to break down with no one able to hold the ball up long enough to enable more players to join in and put the Mousehole defence under pressure. Sticker conceded four more goals this half but fortunately two were disallowed for offside. So the final score was 0-4. A big well done to the reserve team players who stepped up and Theo Maye who came in at the last minute also for Alex Woodcock who came to help. Without these players Sticker wouldn't have had a team. Because of suspensions, injuries and holidays. I'm sure Manager Andrew Avery is more than gratefull and pleased with their response and effort!
