GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE  3  ARMTHORPE WELFARE  1                                         

 

A SCINTILLATING FIRST FOURTY FIVE MINUTES DURING WHICH GLASSHOUGHTON PLAYED THEIR BEST FOOTBALL OF THE SEASON SO FAR SAW THEM TAKE THE POINTS IN COMFORTABLE FASHION

In a blitzing open spell which lasted the most of the first period, the home men attacked from the start and were ahead after only five minutes of play when Jamie Thompson with the aid of an upright turned in Julien Wilkes’s corner kick.  Although home keeper Tom Morgan needed to make a good save from Ashley Hilded, Glasshoughton appeared hungry for the action and capitalising on the pace of Danny King swept forward on repeated occasions to put the visiting rearguard under severe pressure.  That pressure proved too much as in the 25th minute the harassing of Carl Fox forced central defender Danny Sharp to put past his own keeper to give Glasshoughton a two goal cushion.  Glasshoughton continued to have the upper hand and shortly before the interval the pacey King got his reward, turning his marker almost on the bye line to drive a low sizzler past keeper Chittock for an absolute stunner of a goal which put the visitors in real trouble.

In the second period Glasshoughton took their foot off the pedal and stopped going forward with such regularity and consequently the visitors had a larger share of the game and reduced the arrears when Liam Packer met a good cross to head home, but other than the home men’s voracious appeal for a penalty Glasshoughton were hardly troubled further and could have added further to their tally, with King missing the opportunity to have netted an hat trick
