Mens 1sts 6 v 1 Warwick 2nds

Scorers: A.Kotlarzewski(3), B.Matthews, J.Wagg, C.Hobbs

Adders close season signing from Harborne, Alex Kotlarzewski, scored his first Adders hat-trick as the team overcame a strong Warwick side. The Adders also showed great fighting spirit and excellent game management as they came from behind to run out comfortable winners.

Despite the home side controlling the game from the start it was the visitors who went ahead from a short corner after 15 minutes. The ball fell kindly to a Warwick forward in the D after a fine initial save from Will Murphy, and he gratefully scooped the ball into the empty net before the goalie could recover. However within a minute the Adders were level when Cameron Hobbs deflected a cross from the right into the net past the unsighted Warwick keeper.
From then on it was all Adders and only some great goalkeeping kept the scoreline down. With regular short corner specialist Martin Webb on the sideline, Alex Kotlarzewski took control and gave the Adders the lead as half time approached. Then a superb team goal, finished by Ben Matthews but superbly assisted by Daman Johal and Josh Wagg and then a deflected Kotlarzewski goal gave the Adders a comfortable half time lead.
In the second half the Adders once again took control of the game and could have had several more goals but for some superb goalkeeping and some poor Adders finishing. However the side did strike twice, once from Alex Kotlarzewski - who competed his hat-trick - and then from Josh Wagg who fired the ball home from the top of the D to round off an excellent individual performance and strong team performance.
