5-0 win over Sonning Legends sees Wereys safely through to the England O45s Cup semi finals

The quarter final of the Cup was a trip up to Reading to play a new side in the competition – Sonning, so unchartered territory.

As usual the fun bus took most of the team up the M4 and thanks to Haysie’s speaker the lungs were tested out with a few renditions of Bohemian Rhapsody.

On arrival we had an unscheduled tour of Sonning village when, once again, the navigator failed to find the turning into the hockey club, but what a lovely village it is - thanks JB.

Once we’d found our bearings and after a quick warm-up we settled into our game and despite early high pressing by Sonning we were able to transfer the ball quite easily around the back to create a number of early chances, one of which Tam managed to slot away with a very early shot at the edge of the D – 1-0 Wereys.

We continued to play our flowing game and earned a short corner and, from a straight strike which the GK didn’t clear, Elaine nipped in for the rebound – 2-0 Wereys.

Our third goal game from a great passing move to Mitch in the D and again an early shot flew in to make it 3-0 to Wereys at half time.

We started the second half in the same fashion with Sonning dropping their press back giving lots of room in our half. We continued to move the ball around quickly and were again awarded a number of short corners. After another straight strike blocked, but not cleared, by their GK saw Tam finishing it off on the rebound to make it 4-0 Wereys.

The final goal came from another good passing movement on the right with the ball crossed to the left post for Heidi to slot home, 5-0 Wereys.

Despite constant pressure we couldn’t find the goal again but their GK made some great saves to keep the score down.

It was great performance from a fantastic squad.

So semis on 3rd March and we’re hoping for a home game for once.
