Whaley Wobble

Whaley Bridge Under 17s overcame a stiff challenge at home to Queensgate Juniors. The game started at a frenetic pace, and a mix up in the visitors defence saw the ball sliced into his own net by a Queensgate defender. After a 9-1 victory against the same opponents earlier in the season Whaley could have expected a landslide, but it was not to be, and two defensive lapses saw Queensgate take the lead. Bruce Glover advanced from right back, and when the defence backed off he struck a left footed shot into the roof of the net. Whaley were level, but not for long, as Queensgate retook the lead through a good passing move. Alfie Hodges was pressed into a more forward position, and his influence had an immediate effect on the game. Jack Howell was also dominant, but the equaliser fell to Ethan Williams who made no mistake. 3-3 at the break, and there were some harsh words from Ben Williams, the Whaley manager, during the interval. It worked well, and with Hodges again involved Howell made it 4-3. Queensgate came back once more, and another defensive error saw the scores levelled again. Queensgate had more chances, but Whaley have shown great resolve late in games this season, and this was no exception. The ball looked to have gone beyond Hodges, but he headed it back across goal to give Kieran Connell a simple header. Whaley survived a late corner for a 5-4 victory, and they can expect an equally stern test when they visit Marple Athletic on Tuesday evening.
