Warwick 1 take on two top league teams
A return to the Birmingham Futsal Arena saw Warwick 1 take on two tough teams. Warwick played a well fought game in good fighting spirits. Despite being a much closer game in terms of possession in reality than the scoreline suggested, an inability to find the back of the net combined with the clinical execution of Manchester’s forwards lead to a disappointing goal difference.
Goals: Dennis Jackson
Warwick returned to the field for their second game of the day. Wakefield drove a very physical and heart-wrenchingly intense game. A disappointing first two periods, saw Wakefield dominate, scoring 3 times in 2 minutes in each period. A rallying performance from Warwick led to a solid final period on score (4-2) but too late to turn the overall match around. Individual commitment from the West Midlands based-team was superb with a number of players continuing despite injuries. Special mention goes to James Robinson who took a stick to the face early on and soldiered on.
Goals: Dennis Jackson (3) Rihards Stagis (2) Will Swarbrick
