Wantage Town 1-3 Highworth Town

Six out of six!

Another sunny afternoon saw the Worthians take up the challenge of making it six wins out of six in the league at Alfredian Park, Wantage. The Freds had a good result the previous week in taking the 100% record from Thatcham Town and so this promised to be a tough test.

The first half saw the Worthians dominate with the Freds on the back foot and although they had a decent chance to go ahead, it was no real surprise to see the Worthians in front at the interval by two clear goals, courtesy of Wayne Turk and Callum Parsons.

Wantage came out after the break with real determination and spirit and they worked very hard to get back into the game. A fortutious penalty decision gave them a lifeline, which they duly accepted. It then looked like the Worthians would have a real tussle on their hands for the remainder of the game but a sloppy backpass was intercepted by the hard-working and industrious Callum Parsons who was taken down by the keeper in the box and another penalty, converted by Aysa Corrick. This killed off any aspirations the Freds may have had to get back into the game.

This was a well deserved victory against a decent side who will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season.

10 minutes: Excellent ball control by Steve Robertson sees him in front of goal with just Garry Aulsberry to beat, but the shot flies over the bar
29 minutes: A Wayne Turk effort from 25 yards out is parried by Curtis Meare, but the ball spins off an upright and into the net. 0-1
33 minutes: An excellent Ryan O'Hara corner ball sees Callum Parsons nip across the static Wantage defence to head home at the near post. 0-2
42 minutes: Curtis Meare gets tangled up with Chris Jackson and Callum Parsons is first to the loose ball but Dan Sadler clears off the line
52 minutes: Garry Aulsberry parries a well-struck shot from Dan Comer and Wayne Turk is on hand to clear the loose ball
62 minutes: Jack Powell carries the ball swiftly down the left flank and delivers it into the path of Ryan Markham who hits a tremendous shot, but Garry Aulsberry makes the save of the match, tipping the ball out after diving full stretch to his left.
65 minutes: Ross Adams makes a sound tackle in the box but Wantage are awarded a very fortuitous penalty which Jack Dunmall converts. 1-2
67 minutes: The ever industrious Callum Parsons chases down Dan Sadler and intercepts a weak back pass and is taken down by Curtis Meare. Aysa Corrick steps up to convert the spot kick. 1-3
76 minutes: A fast break out by Callum Parsons and Aysa Corrick sees Callum's shot fizz over the bar
80 minutes: Another fine cross from Jack Powell on the left is just too high for the outstretched Steve Robertson who can only tamely head the ball out of play
