STONES THRASHED: Wealdstone swept apart by Maidenhead United

 Published on: 26th December 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Wealdstone F.C

Wealdstone were comfortably beaten 4-0 on their Boxing Day bout away against Maidenhead United, with two goals coming in each half. 

The Stones got off to the worst possible start after the hosts’ Upward slotted the ball beyond goalkeeper Moore inside five minutes.

Moses Emmanuel thought he got his side back on level terms on the 19th minute after he put the ball in the back of the net, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.

With five minutes left in the first half, Maidenhead got the breathing space they desired after Coley was in space on the right hand side and managed to curl an effort beyond Moore.

The second half started just as badly for the visitors, after a Wealdstone defender was penalised for handling the ball in the box, leading to a penalty.

Orsi stepped up confidently and put the game beyond Wealdstone, making it 3-0.

Just minutes later, Maidenhead made it four after an excellent cross from Wells found Blissett, who powered his header beyond Moore. 

There were two debuts for Wealdstone as they tried to keep the score as low as possible, with Browne and Debayo coming on in place of Mendy and Emmanuel.

Dennon Lewis almost got Wealdstone a consolation goal in the final stages of the game, only for Ashby Hammond to spectacularly deny him.

The score remained at 4-0 for the rest of the game, a result that sees Wealdstone drop outside of the play-off spots in the Vanarama National League, into eighth.

There’s a chance for the Stones to bounce back quickly though, with a home game against 15th placed Boreham Wood on Monday, December 28.
