Blofield United 1 Wroxham Res 6
14 goals in 2 games for the Ressies as they followed up their fine win against UEA last week with another good performance against neighbours Blofield in the league. It was their first win of the season and ought to be a real confidence booster for the games ahead.
Blofield had an early chance when Robbie Fryer’s shot went close. But from then on it was pretty much all Wroxham as the youngsters took charge with some impressive play that had Chairman Lee Robson buzzing on the sideline.
Archie Galley who came on for his first 1st team appearance the night before continued his impressive form. He also had an early chance latching onto a forward pass to get away and looked certain to score as he clipped the ball over Stones but the Blofield keeper just got a hand on the ball and it drifted away.
Then a cross from the left found Ryan Fuller who side footed over. Wroxham took the lead on 20 minutes when a lovely pass from Fuller set Jordan Bond away who side footed past the keeper into the far corner.
Blofield fought back with Richard Brett creating an opportunity that was well saved by Harry Hunt.
Wroxham had chances to increase the lead on 25 minutes when Fuller’s free header went over and he almost atoned for that miss with a shot against the woodwork soon after.
It really was no surprise when the visitors scored a second on 32 minutes when Bond set up Fuller to drill home a low shot into the bottom.
With their tails up Wroxham ought to have scored again through Bond but he had a rush of blood and lobbed over.
Blofield had a period when they put Wroxham under pressure but the youngsters coped well to thwart The Beavers.
Wroxham regained their composure to score a 3rd goal just before the break. Jimmy Morrisey’s free kick was brilliantly converted by a glancing header by Archie Galley.
With a comeback expected from Blofield in the second half, Wroxham pretty much put the game to bed on 55 minutes assisted by The Beavers keeper. His misplaced clearance fell to Galley who lobbed the ball back to make it 4nil.
Although Blofield did threaten and pulled one back through substitute Callum Cox, Wroxham scored two late goals for an emphatic win.
Keeper Hunt started a swift move from one end of the field to the other as Wroxham sub Ryan Mills rounded Stones to score from a tight angle.
Then in the 88th minute they scored a sixth as Ryan Fuller converted a left wing cross.
Next Saturday due to the 1st team’s home FA Vase game with Norwich CBS taking precedence, the Reserves will again be on their travels away to Reepham.
