Whitchurch Utd continue their run of good form in the Wessex League Premier Division when they traveled to take on Totton and Eling on Saturday.
Totton and Eling 1 – Whitchurch United 4
Just 4 minutes from the start Totton and Eling’s had an opportunity to score an early first goal but for the defending in the goal mouth by Alex Pickering.
An even start to the match
Play was pretty even and the game could have gone either way during the first 30 or so minutes. However at around 40 minutes Luke Walker put Whitchurch in the lead which held until the half time whistle.
Whitchurch took control after the break
Just 2 minutes into the second half a poor pass was intercepted by Luke Walker whose cross beat Totton and Eling’s goal keeper Kevin O’Rourke fair and square, putting Whitchurch 2 up.
Just 6 minutes later Luke Walker squared up to take a free kick, slipped past the ball, and the free kick was taken by Nick Turpin who fired it straight past the the wall of defenders cleanly into the net past a static goal keeper.
Goal 4 for the Jam Boys, who were now playing well, came 20 minutes before the final whistle from a fantastic shot into the corner of the net making it a hat trick for Luke Walker.
14 minutes to go and a scrum in the goalmouth saw Totton and Eling’s only goal scored by Carl Spencer.
At the final whistle one could say that although Whitchurch United struggled in the first half to gain the upper hand, they did deserved to win the game.
Whitchurch move up to 8th place in the table.
Next League game
