Lions beat Spencers Wood with a second straight 4-3 win

By

Lions win back-to-back league games for first time in 2 years

More November sunshine graced a 09.00 KO the other side of Reading with the Lions feeling upbeat from the last games for a match against mid-table Spencer Wood Hurricanes. With an untypical high-energy active start to the game, the Lions dominated and flourished for the first 25 minutes on a relatively small pitch that required good ball control given the lack of space. Josh Adams scored his first Lions goal on 15 minutes to the delight of the travelling Teddington crowd only to see the team pegged back to 1-1 on 25 minutes - and from that point the Lions lost control of the game for 10 minutes while SWH started to find more time on the ball to make some smart passes. There then followed the play of the game (if not the season) as Josh Pick lost the ball in his own box, won the ball back, burst out to the left, lost and won the ball back again, before breaking down the right wing, out-muscled the centre-back before hurdling the left-back and then running onto the keeper to slot a low shot into the far corner. 2-1. Pandemonium on the touchline for what was a 120-yard run and goal that resembled more my usual path down a par 5 fairway. Half-time! More sparring in the second half resulted in the Lions forwards acting like the 3 wise kings bringing presents to the young SWH keeper … a series of gift misses made you think that the nativity play had kicked off 6 weeks early! It needed a strong play and shot by Jack to ease the Lions back into a 3-2 lead 15 mins into the period - all of which came from a great piece of play by Dan from the back with some delightful passing and a cool slot into the bottom right corner by The Elk. 5 mins later and the Lions have some breathing space at 4-2 with Josh Adams bagging his second with a tap-in at the back post. SWH came back again and were rewarded when a speculative 25-yard grubber ball bobbled over a diving Karim to give the home boys a spot of hope - but the Lions played out the final two mins without much danger to secure their 3rd league win of the season. Another good team performance with some remarkable moments and a lot of close-quarter battles across the pitch. Magic moments came from Josh Pick and Dan Corner, with Captain Elk having fun in the sun … but I think for a stunning piece of individual play, Josh P takes the plaudits for MOTM today. Well done Boys!
