Chesham Utd Generals 1 -2 Thame U14 Boys
By Steve Miller
11th league win of the season sends Thame Boys clear at the top of the table.
Good win for the lads this morning away to Chesham Utd Generals. Playing on not the best of surfaces the lads still looked to play their football and be true to our style of play. Against the run of play in the 1st half a cross into our box from the left was very well headed past the keepers left hand side to send the opposition 1-0 up.
We continued to dominate the half and hit the post with a long range effort from captain Harry Ritchie and had a goal disallowed for off side from Sam Magor. We created 10 plus chances the in first half but just couldn't get the ball into the net.
1-0 down at half time the message was keep going and we will get back into this game. 10 minutes into the second half a well delivered ball into the box from the right was dispatched into the bottom left hand side of the goal by Thomas Wheller. Sam Magor had a well hit shot saved by the keeper not long after and we continued to dominate the game.
With 7 minutes to go and cross into the box led to out winner. Thomas Wheller got in front of his marker and got to the ball first. The opposition center half made his challenge, didnt get the ball and got the player. Penalty. Harry Ritchie stepped up to take and slotted the winner to the keepers right hand side.
Over the course of a season you have to dig deep even if you are dominating a game and grind out the result. That's what the team did today and the opposition keeper was MOM as his double save at the end from Frankie McHugh showed.
Well done to the lads, Wycombe away next week.
