Ware's play off chances fly off after defeat at Bedfont
In Friday’s only Bostik South Central game Ware threw away the chance to close the gap on Westfield and almost certainly threw away any chance of a play off berth come the end of the season.
Ware started brightly and should have taken the lead when Brandon Adams
spread the ball out wide to Albert Adu
, he got past his man and fired across goal where Adams was finishing his run but the forward could not make contact when he seemed certain to score. At the other end the hosts first shot came from a speculative Harry Lal effort that Calum Kitscha
was equal to palming the ball away.
The opening goal arrived from the penalty spot after Jordon Watson
had been tripped by Albie Sheehan Cozens. Dave Cowley
cheekily dinked the ball into the bottom corner of the goal.
Adams was drawing closer for Ware and after finishing a delightful passing move he turned his man and saw his shot brush the outside of the post on its way wide. With Ware appearing to be in the ascendancy they began to formulate their own downfall. Watson gave the ball away on the halfway line and it was fed to Sean McCormack who kept his cool to round Kitscha and side foot home. Within minutes the game had been turned completely around when Jack Mills shot from distance beat Kitscha and went in.
Shortly before the break we were all square again as Williams Danquah
made a bursting run forward and spread to Jack Daveney
who showed some astute awareness to lift the ball over a defender and into the path of Adams who took a touch and finished.
In the second half the Ware team, conscious a draw would probably not help play off ambitions, pushed for a winner but despite superior possession they became toothless in the final third. Committing more men forward as the game progressed Bedfont began to look a real threat on the break and so it was to pass that McCormack burst through again and in attempting to round Kitscha was this time brought down by the keeper. James Simmonds sent the Ware stopper the wrong way with the spot kick.
Second half chances for Watson, Adams and Ben Hart
all came to nothing and the three points remained at the end of Heathrow’s runway.
