The Wokingham Paper - - SPORT -

SAM GUZE (pic­tured) scored two late goals as Wood­ley shocked Al­der­mas­ton to get off the mark in their Sub­sidiary Cup group.

The Kestrels had lost all three of their games in the com­pe­ti­tion go­ing into the game, while Al­der­mas­ton had two wins from two.

How­ever, Wood­ley bat­tled back from fall­ing be­hind to win 3-1 with Max Laschok also find­ing the net.

Jon Laugh­arne made four changes from his side which lost 2-1 in the re­verse fix­ture last week with Luke Ax­ton-Hall, Pele Hag­ger, Leon Man­nion and Teddy Thomas all start­ing.

But it was the hosts who got off to a fly­ing start, tak­ing the lead in just the sec­ond minute through Sid Gbla.

Wood­ley com­peted well through­out the first half, but went in be­hind at the break.

That is how the game stayed un­til 20 min­utes from time when sub­sti­tute Laschok found the net from a Chace Jewell cross.

And the Kestrels were not done there, go­ing ahead when Guze net­ted from a free-kick. And the same man was on tar­get again to wrap up the win, tuck­ing home a penalty af­ter a foul on Laschok.

Wood­ley stay bot­tom of the group, but now just three points sep­a­rate all four sides. United go to Chin­nor in the league on Satur­day (3pm) be­fore host­ing Walling­ford Town on Mon­day night (7.45pm).

WOOD­LEY: Sang­well, Hawkins, Jewell (Brown 81), Hag­ger (Laschok 67), Sis­sons, Alexan­der (Blake­more 72), Bar­ron, Guze, Ax­ton-Hall, Man­nion, Thomas. Subs not used: Bryant, Bill.
