U18's record their first win of the season, a 4-2 victory over North Walsham U18

Another step up in performance

Another thoroughly entertaining match with the Fakenham Team building upon their performance over at Dereham last week and getting most things right but not everything going their way. With both teams intent on attack, the first half was pretty even, though ultimately shaded by Fakenham in that they finished the half in the lead. Fakenham scored first through Sam Owen who ran onto a long ball down the right, saw that the keeper was well off his line and so dinked a shot over the keepers arms from 20 metres out on the right side of the area. Walsham responded with a well worked goal by Matthew Pike after 20 minutes. Thomas Wylie put a great ball into the Fakenham penalty area to Pike who took on a defender, beat him all ends up and picked his place to comfortably beat Herring in the Fakenham goal. Fakenham re-took the lead after 28 minutes when they were awarded a very soft penalty, handball by a Walsham defender in the area but a misjudgement rather than deliberate handball. Zac Kirby converted from the spot, a bullet shot leaving the Walsham keeper just standing there. Walsham continued to put pressure on the Fakenham goal and were slightly unlucky to see a shot come off the crossbar. Herring made a couple of important stops to maintain Fakenham's slim advantage with Walsham's Pike a continual threat. Half time score 2-1 to Fakenham. That very quickly became 3-1 after 48 minutes when Brandon Ballett drove at pace into the Walsham area, slipped the ball to Sam Owen whose shot was only half blocked, going only out to Rio Wurr-Talbot who put the ball into the net with a very cool finish. Walsham responded almost immediately when Pike scored his second when Herring went to ground to gather a ball but spilled it on the greasy surface and Pike had a simple finish. Game definitely on now at 3-2 but Fakenham weathered a Walsham 10 minutes of pressure and then had the rub of the green to again stretch the lead to 2 goals. A high cross into the Walsham area by Jordan Rumbles was a simple catch for the keeper until he slipped on the wet grass as he came out to gather and the ball went directly over him and into the net. An unfortunate event!! Walsham kept plugging away with Wylie and Pike continually causing problesm, Pike unlucky not to get his hat trick when a cross by Wylie found him in the area with only Herring to beat but his shot hit the bottom of the post and rebounded away. Fakenham, with a 2 goal cushion, had by far the best of the last 30 minutes with the Ballett brothers, Sam Owen and Rio Wurr-Talbot continually threatening to add to the goal tally. In quick succession, Owen was only thwarted by the keeper bravely coming out to smother the shot. No more score but a good victory for the team against opponents who had beaten them on both occasions last season. Lots of plus points from the game, a marked improvement from the first game thrashing by Swaffham Town who, co-incidently are our next opponents, so an immediate chance to guage if the improvement of the last 2 games is genuine or not. #COYG
