Waters double earns win


Baston travelled to Wisbech Town Reserves on Saturday in the PDFL Division One determined to carry on from their extra time win over Langtoft Reserves the previous Saturday.

Two goals from Troy Waters meant they came home happy and with all three points.

Due to the suspension of Ciaran Reynolds, an immediate change was needed which was Stuart Couzens.

From kick off, both teams were struggling to get into motion as most of the possession was in the middle of the park.

After the slow first ten minutes, both teams stepped up their game with Baston creating more chances through controlled passing from Scott Collins and the defenders using the width of the pitch.

With Baston pressing on into the Wisbech half, opportunities were created giving Troy Waters his first goal, a header before half an hour.

Wisbech lost some confidence as Baston kept on pressing into their half.

With great passing from James Ward and Tom Horton, it gave Waters another opportunity to score.

With the assist off Tom Horton’s toe, the ball landed perfectly in front of Waters for him to lob the keeper, giving Baston a 2-0 lead into halftime.

After the half time team talks, Wisbech had a spurt of energy as they pushed up the pitch towards the goal of Liam Davies.

As much as they pressed, Stuart, Couzens and Flood coped with the pressure with the likes of Lawrence Stewart coping very well with the ball and one on one situations during the game.

Ten minutes into the second half, Wisbech had a free kick just outside the box. However Liam Davies made an incredible save to keep a clean sheet for Baston.

With substitutions being made, Baston moved forward. Anthony Garmory managed to get past the Wisbech left back every time he had the ball, Matthew Medler got on the end of one only for it to be straight at the keeper.

As the clock kept counting down, Baston settled down to keep a clean sheet and to secure four matches unbeaten.
