Corsham Wildcats 1-3 AFC Melksham

Melksham Tame Wildcats

With both sides struggling on the numbers front this game was always going to be a difficult one but it turned out to be the proverbial game of two halves as Corsham Wildcats took on AFC Melksham.

Melksham started the match with good movement all round the field and it did not take long for James Dark to open the scoring with barely 5 minutes on the clock. This was followed by a customary Rhys Talmash goal and with only a 3rd of the half played, Jack Groves made it 3 nil to the visitors and another cricket score was looking likely.

A lively Wildcats attack lead by Adam Mitchell were struggling to penetrate the Melksham defence of Tom Webb ,Danny Harrison, Aaron Chalice and Ollie Clarke but the attack was also being kept quiet after the explosive start and they went in at the with the score line at 3-0.

The second half saw Wildcats dominate possession with Darrin Moss pushing his team forward and keeper Sam Clark kept the home side in front with a couple of decent saves as Wildcats used both winger effectively but just could not find a way through the solid defence.

It took a wonder strike on 67 minutes to pull one back.

It was the visitors that looked for referee to blow his the final whistle as some off target shooting and good saves by Clark allowed Melksham to somewhat escape with all 3 points as another win makes that a perfect 3 and 0 and they look forward to the visit of Semington to Bowerhill for the last fixture in September.
