West Wight FC 2 v 4 Sandown FC – Division One
Weds 4 September 2019
Score 2 – 4
Last Wednesday we travelled to West Wight for our last midweek game.
This was always going to be a tough place to come as West Wight have always put out a good side. We got off to the worst start ever when after 1 min 50 secs we went one nil down because we were static from the first whistle. Now we had to settle and play football, which luckily, we did.
After some good football and lots of pressure we equalised through a really scrappy goal from Ben Field. Half time came with the score at 1 -1 but West Wight were slightly on top. We were giving them too much space and at times playing too deep.
The second half started well and we settled in formation and the pressing became more consistent and it wasn’t long before we went 2 -1 through a Lewis Wade goal. Continued pressure on the West Wight back 4 resulted in a free kick on the edge of their box which was superbly executed by Alex Breignan. From the kick off we fell asleep and 1 minute 43 seconds later we conceded out second goal, 3-2.
We were now on top and playing good football on the floor and piling on the pressure so it wasn’t surprising when a short while later Alex scored his second our 4th.
Final result 4 -2 to SFC after a great result and some good football.
