Hornets steer to victory at Sea Mills

The Reserves final game before Christmas was a chance to get some more points at Sea Mills. The reserves made the trip down to Kingsweston and with captain Amin away it was up to Collis-Pritchard to captain the team. Here is how the reserves lined up:-

Walsh, Williams (D), Gosling, Pyett, Collis-Pritchard, Sykes, Dawes, Cornock, Platts, Hussain and Peplow with Whiting, Curnock and Williams (J) on the bench.

The pitch was heavy but fairly dry considering the time of year. The hornets started on the front foot and looked to get the ball up to Peplow and Hussain who both held the ball well bringing the other midfielders into the game.

The hornets soon took the lead when a corner from Dawes was cheekily finished by Hussain at the near post as he flicked the ball into the net from close range. It was just the start the hornets were looking for. Sadly, for Dawes his match was soon to be over after he had to be substituted off early into the game as he picked up a knock to his ankle. Whiting came on with Platts going into a more so central role.

Sea Mills responded and came forwards, but the attacks were few and far between as Gosling and Pyett were dominant in the air and Collis-Pritchard asserted his authority on the game by strongly breaking up attacks down the left side of the pitch.

The Hornets then took a 2-0 lead when Peplow sold the defenders with a lovely piece of movement and curled his shot into the top left corner, it was a lovely finish and gave the Hornets a cushion.

Cornock was working hard again in the midfield and when the hornets tried to play the ball on the floor in the first halve the football was good, Sykes was causing trouble for the full back with his pace down the right.

Walsh was largely untroubled however he made a smart save at the near post from one of the few Sea Mills attacks to keep it at 2-0.
Half time came and the message from Burchy was that it was a good performance but vocally we needed to be stronger in the 2nd Halve and communicate better to help our play.

The 2nd half began and there was a period where the hornets couldn’t really play like they did in the first halve. Sea Mills were applying pressure and we had become a bit wasteful on the ball. Frustration could of crept in but the Hornets remained positive.

Sykes was starting to involve himself in some friendly humour with the Sea Mills supporters over a decision and it proved to be a bit of a catalyst as Sykes then ran through one on one with the keeper and nicely slotted home into the top right of the goal. Some further humour followed.

Collis-Pritchard was brought off as Williams (J) came on at left back however there was soon to be another positional change as Gosling was struggling with a knock, so Collis-Pritchard returned to the pitch at left back as Williams (J) joined Pyett at centre back.

Hussain was soon to turn provider as he lobbed the ball back towards the goal over the keeper and Whiting was on hand to head the ball into an empty net… However, Whiting headed the ball onto the crossbar, it fell to Platts and Platts finished from close range! Whiting is still trying to claim the assist!

Platts then made way for Curnock to return to the reserves after being away at University this year. It was another hard-working performance from Platts who broke up play well and was positive going forward.

Sykes day wasn’t also over, he got booked for a tussle with a Sea Mills player and still fired up from the banter with the Sea Mills supporters he then strongly won the ball against the same player who he had just tussled with, what followed next was bizarre yet comical as Sykes celebrated winning the duel like he was showing off his muscular prowess at a boxing weigh in much to the amusement of his teammates and bewilderment of Sea Mills.

Hussain was then back involved as he rounded the keeper and neatly finished from a tight angle to cap a great day for him as well.

Peplow made way for Platts as it appeared he might also have been struggling towards the end of the game with a knock.
It’s also worth adding (and he wanted it included in the match report) that Walsh made a cracking save too from a ball into the box to preserve his clean sheet.

The game finished 5-0 and it was a great win for the Hornets who were the dominant team throughout the game.

Burchy had a tough call for MOTM however Sykes was awarded the MOTM for his performance, well done Sykes!

Hope you have a great Christmas!

COYH!
