Match Report - 09 Dec 2017, Old Wykehamist Football Club 1st XI lost to Lancing Old Boys

Lancing 4-2 OWFC 1s

Not a good day. Consensus seemed to be throughout the first half that Lancing were one of the weakest sides we’d faced and were eminently beatable, as we went 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0 down. The first straight off a corner, the 2nd an admittedly very good headed goal, and the 3rd a soft unattended curled shot from around the edge of the area.

A Hodnett free-kick was turned in by a flying Dave Prichard just before half-time, giving us belief that we could get a result that reflected our abilities. In the 2nd half, we gathered confidence and a Hodnett long range shot pinged in off the post. 3-2 and with momentum, Lancing then re-established their two-goal lead at 4-2 after a freakish looping ball was misjudged. That killed the game and a result that was nowhere near good enough. We lie 8th out of 10 going into Christmas, knowing we can build on our 3 wins and do better in the new year.
