More than a match for title favourites
By Simon King
Unbeaten run stretches to five games
Unbeaten run stretches to five games against the title favourites Worcester as the lads showed they are a match for anyone in this league. Stourbridge had the better of the first 40 mins, dominating possession and creating more chances than Worcester who were restricted to one attempt on goal. the first half finished deservedly 1-0 to Stourbridge after Jimmy put an excellent corner into the six yard box for Dan Harvey to guide a headed ball into the far corner of the Worcester Goal.
The third quarter was Worcester's best period, playing some very good attacking football putting plenty of pressure on the Stourbridge goal and causing Joe to pull off two excellent saves. Worcester were rewarded with an excellent goal by their no.10 who received the ball on his right foot turned and struck an excellent shot with his left, a great goal!
The final quarter was very even and competitive but we had a 5 minute spell where Dan could have got a 2nd but hit over and Jimmy found the keeper from distance.
The game finished 1-1 probably a fair result on reflection and home and away draws shows our progress.
Well done lads - so pleased for Matt and James stepping in my absence and doing such a fine job. Interesting couple of weeks ahead with top 3 all playing each other
