SSMFL D1: United come from behind for victory at WIND-slow

Winslow United came from behind to defeat Hatfield Town 3-1 in horrendous conditions at Elmfields Gate on Saturday afternoon.

Winslow United celebrate going ahead against Hatfield Town. Saturday 16th March 2019.

Very strong winds and rain gave the Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 encounter an unwanted element.

Hatfield started brightly and went ahead when the home side were penalised for a foul in the area and a spot kick was awarded. The visiting striker made no mistake with a well-taken penalty which gave United goalkeeper Sam Ashmead no chance.

United were soon on the front foot but a counter attack saw Ashmead produce a brilliant one-on-one save to keep Hatfield’s lead to just the one goal.

Matt Cruse found himself in the left-hand channel and cut backwards before producing a cross, which Harry Dalton flicked on. Sean Coles was quickest to react as he pounced to lift the ball over the visiting goalkeeper’s flying block. The ball came back off of the crossbar and Grant Karwacinski rolled the ball in from four yards out.

In driving wind and rain, United took the lead as a short throw to Simon King saw the Winslow captain twist one way and the other before finding Alex Kedzierski, who moved the ball quickly across the pitch to Ryan Freshwater. The United defender took one touch before drilling his shot low into the far corner of the net.

In the opening minutes of the second half, a United attack saw Coles fouled and Freshwater made no mistake in sweeping home his spot kick.

The rest of the game was a battle, mainly against the conditions as the wind became more fierce.

Hatfield had a player sent off late on for a second yellow card.
