Wednesbury Baptist 4-4 Corinthians SK

Todays game gave SK an opportunity to gain revenge after our 1-4 defeat to the same side on Wednesday.
Determined to produce a more effective performance, SK came racing out of the traps and swarmed all over Wednesbury for the opening 25 minutes, creating a fair few opportunities. The dangerous Tom Puncheon (pictured) opened the scoring for SK and after a well worked corner Phil Bostock scored a deserved 2nd. Wednesbury could not get there passing game going as SK out-worked and outplayed them. SK keeper then fell over his own player whilst coming to collect a simple cross, thus allowing a simple goal to Wednesbury. A poor mistake by the Wednesbury keeper then allowed the hard working Chris Freeth to squeeze the ball through his legs and home to make it a deserved 1-3 lead for SK. Another goal was then scored as the ball, which SK players felt had gone out of play, was squared to the unmarked Wednesbury forward to dispatch, half time 2-3.
SK started the second half as the first had finished, but squandered a few chances before Chris Freeth slid home a loose ball after a good move to make it 2-4 to SK. However, Wednesbury are not a side to lie down easily and threw caution to the wind and poured forward. Another goal for Wednesbury made it 3-4, before the SK goalkeeper cursed himself for a poor goal kick and was red carded for doing so (using bad language).
This put a new reflection on the game and Wednesbury were now rampant against the 10 men of SK. In the dying minutes Wednesbury got the equaliser and the whistle followed to end the game 4-4.
To SK this will feel more like a defeat as their efforts probably deserved more, but fair play to Wednesbury for displaying a lot of character to nick a point
Two good teams were on show here, both played good, exciting, attractive football which was a credit to the league.
Luke Ellor, Tom Pencheon and Chris Freeth were excellent for the improving SK
