Prescoed 2-5 Wainfelin Bluebirds
12:40pm Monday 14th January 2013 in Sport
WAINFELIN Bluebirds made the trip to Prescoed for this top of the table clash. Prescoed put a strong team out in order to try and stop the double being done over them.
Captain Daniel Lamb and Jonathon Davies were winning everything in the middle of the park and were running Prescoed ragged.
Scott Waters and Jonathon Healy were linking up well on the flank and were causing the home team problems.
The front pairing of Daniel Lewis and Adam Taghdiri were getting into good positions and Taghdiri was rewarded when he got the opener after 15 minutes. The Bluebirds should have pushed on from this but instead started to lose their shape a little which was the reason that Mark O'Connor and Daffyd Heneghan had a busy 20 minutes.
The home team had a few chances themselves but Terry Watkins pulled of some good and important saves.
Prescoed did get the equaliser they deserved eight minutes before the break and some sloppy defending allowed the home strikers too much time and space.
The 2nd half was a better one for both Lewis Bradbury and Zach Heneghan, as they both had much more ball and linked up well resulting in Heneghan getting back to his best and beating defenders with ease. Taghdiri was substituted and on came Will Griffiths who immediately caused problems with his skill and pace.
It was only moments later when the Bluebirds took the lead. Heneghan beat his man before crossing to the back post where man of the match Lewis was waiting to slot the ball home. It was Lewis who made it 3-1 a few minutes later when he was quickest to respond to a loose ball in the box and rifled it home.
A free kick after a foul saw Davies curled it in the top corner and the keeper had no chance. Prescoed got a rare opportunity and capitalised on it to bring the score back to 4-2 to the Bluebirds.
Lewis had another chance that he chipped over the sliding keeper, but as it was going in Griffiths tried to pinch it but he missed the ball completely span around and it hit him on his rear and went out for a goal kick.
Heneghan did get goal number five when he raced on to Lambs through ball and he finished it in style. The best chance of the game and maybe the season fell to Haines who chased an already goal-bound shot, but as he tried to get the final touch four inches from the line, he somehow managed to mis-kick it and it hit the post.
