The Bull [ 3: 4 ] Wheathampstead Wanderers
In a fantastic game for the neutral, The Bull and Wheathampstead Wanderers played out a 7-goal thriller at Napsbury. Despite a good start for the home side, it was the visitors who took the lead, when Kwame Ofori’spass wasn’t dealt with, and Jordan Cornes pounced to neatly slot home. The lead was short lived though, as Jack Faulder’s cross was met fantastically by Elliot Archer, with a thunderbolt header at the back post. The Bull then went in front, again from a Faulder corner, this time it was Jamie Sharp who tapped home.
Wanderers got straight back into it and very quickly we’re back in front courtesy of two goals from Harvey Armstrong. Just before half time and things were level again, when Nathan Locks brilliant shift and finish saw the sides level at the break, 3-3.
The second half saw both defences tighten up. But with about 15 minutes to go, Ofori found
Stephen Buckler well outside the box, and he unleashed an early contender for goal of the season. With a rocket of a drive right into the top corner to make it 4-3 to the visitors.
There was still time for more drama, as the home side pushed on for another equaliser, Wanderers back line held firm, and when it was finally broken with the last touch of the game, Archer’s header crashed against the post.

St George’s grew back into game and soon put their contender forward for goal of the game, with a scoring thunderous into the top corner.
