13th January 2018: Wideopen Wanderers v. Wallsend Town

After a series of postponements due to the bad weather, it was a relief to find the pitch playable, with the Wideopen boys keen to build on their performances from before the unscheduled winter break.  Wallsend Town were the visitors to Lockey Park, and a close game was anticipated, with the last meeting between the two sides being a very tightly fought affair.

However, Wideopen were soon on the attack, with Cameron breaking free, only to see his early shot saved by the visitors' goalkeeper.  Soon afterwards, the same player was played through again by a super pass from Patrick, but again the Wallsend keeper made a fantastic save.  It was not all one way traffic though, and Ashton was called on to make some smart saves, ably assisted by some resolute defending.  When he was finally beaten, the ball ricocheted back off the post to preserve the goalless scoreline.

While Wideopen had most of the possession, Wallsend were carving out the better chances, and it was no surprise when the visitors took the lead just before half time.  The post looked to have saved us again, as did a couple of point blank saves by Ashton, but in the ensuing scramble, the ball was forced home to give Wallsend a half time lead.

The mood at half time was none-the-less upbeat, as the performance had been good so far, but it was still a surprise to see just how well the home side started the second half.  Almost from the referees whistle, Wideopen were on the attack, and it wasn't long before Will equalised, finishing a weaving run with a fantastic shot into the bottom corner of the net.

It was great to see a series of superb passing moves, with the teamwork shown being especially pleasing to the coaches, and it wasn't long before one of these moves resulted in Wideopen taking the lead; Joe Lowes driving home after being played through by Will.

It was turning into a fantastic team performance, with all players contributing fully from back to front, and it really wasn't a surprise when Wideopen added a third, with Will, playing an unfamiliar role up front, scoring his second of the match.

In summary, it was a classic "game of two halves" - the first being a closely fought tussle between two well matched sides, before a step up in performance led to one of the best halves of football ever played by the Wideopen side.  Lets hope that next week's game against Wylam is just as good.
