The Wingmakers - Match Report 2009/10


Prestatyn Town 2-2 Airbus UK Broughton (September 25th 2009)

The Bus were coasting by half time but once referee Andy Harms had remembered he hates Airbus and booked the influential Rhys Roberts twice in quick succession the game turned on its head. The Blues comfortably took a 2-0 lead, despite Prestatyn's constant whingeing and a fair amount of niggle. 

Giovanni Feliciello finally got his free kick range right to fire in the opener after 8'. Paul McManus sent in his own rangefinder on 37' that flashed across the goal from outside the area on the right. It was just a practise effort, though, as a minute later he scored from an identical position, this time the ball curling gracefully over into the back of the net. No worries at half time, then and the points seemingly safely on their way back to Broughton. The second half was a different story but not before James McIntosh had picked up a loose ball on the edge of the box, unfortunately unable to keep his rasper down. Rhys got his first booking for what just seemed an energetic tackle in a toughly fought game anyway, no doubt influenced by the Seasiders' shouts, somewhat two-faced considering their own assaults. 

Airbus didn't help themselves by then conceding an awful goal, Steve Rogers getting to a gentle lob played inside the area, with no Wingmaker remotely interested in clearing up at any stage, to shoot home. The home side, boosted by their luck, upped their ugly up-and-under game and the pressure began to swing the other way, helped by Rhys getting his marching orders for another nothing challenge. Still Airbus could have wrapped it up, Marc Lloyd-Williams flicking the ball to Matty Cook but he didn't keep his head when composure was needed& crashed the ball over. Airbus, severely weakened at the back, struggled to cope with the aerial bombardment. They cleared off the line in a moment of frantic defending but then left Paul O'Neill with a free header in front of goal for the equaliser. By now it was panicky, backs-to- the-wall stuff but Jiws very nearly grabbed the points back, turning his man to flash over Dunt but just onto the top of the net. Prestatyn very nearly got all three at the death, Kristian Rogers desperately scooping off the line.
