Woodhouse Moor Methodists……0

Old Mods……………………………………3
T. Stenger
J. Lazenby
D. White

Goals from Tommy Stenger, Jodie Lazenby and Dan White?? gave Dan Bradford’s Mods side their first win since early November.

Modes opened the scoring within the first 15 minutes when quick thinking from Tommy Snowden’s corner kick presented Dan White with an opportunity that the keeper did well to save, only for Tommy Stenger to be on hand to snaffle up the rebound at the second attempt with a cultured miskick from 2 yards out, Matty Campbell would have been proud of that goal.

Mods doubled their lead shortly after when a expertly angled Stu Astell free kick was matched with exquisitely timed diving header from Jodie Lazenby, his header was placed perfectly in the bottom corner, giving the keeper no chance.

Mods looked fairly comfortable for most of the first half, but Woodhouse didn’t lie down, they began to exert a pit of pressure towards the end of the half and only a string of tidy saves from stand in keeper Phil Gillet kept the home side at bay.

Mods started the second half on the back foot, Woodhouse came flying out the blocks and looked to grab an lifeline in the game. But as the half went on any fight seemed to die out as the Mods back four dealt with the Woodhouse advances and soon regained control of the game, as the home side looked to run out of ideas.

The game was well and truly put to bed when Dan White limped onto the end of a through ball and elegantly lobbed the keeper who had stranded himself in no man’s land. There is some confusion as to whom should be credited with the goal as the keeper looked to get a touch as he was scrambling back onto his line.

Mods saw out the reminder of time fairly comfortably to record a valuable 3 points that see them leapfrog the weekends opponents. They now must look ahead to a tricky fixture away at Grangefield next week where another win would see them well and truly back in the hunt for promotion.

NB: If anyone picked up an electric blue base layer, please can you bring it with you to next week’s game.

NB2: Did anyone see the sky as we left the changing rooms? I wish someone took a picture of it.
