Doughboys Produce One Of Their Best Performances To Date

1 week ago By Steve Whitney

The Doughboys first-team turned in one of their best performances of the season so far in....

....convincingly defeating Cogenhoe United on Tuesday evening at the Dog & Duck.

The side clicked into gear and played some scintillating football as their neighbours were swept aside.

Wellingborough took the lead in the 25th minute of the game, when Justin Dowling surged through towards goal and was cynically stopped just outside of the penalty area.

He took the free-kick himself and a trademark effort crashed against the crossbar – rebounding to Deven Ellwood, who headed the ball over the line.

Cogenhoe protested that the ball had not completely crossed over but the officials were content to award the goal.

Ten minutes later the visitors had a good chance to level matters when Vieira sent an angled shot just wide of Luke Reay’s net.

Four minutes from the break an acrobatic effort from Dowling was well saved by Lutter in the United goal.

Early in the second period there was more frustration for Cogenhoe as substitute Harry Chipchase had an effort disallowed for offside and they fell further behind on 59 minutes.

Ellwood was the scorer again as he flicked the ball past Lutter after Wisniewski’s shot had been blocked.

The Wellingborough striker was close to claiming a hat-trick 6 minutes later but saw his effort bobble just wide.

With 75 minutes on the clock Michael Cirelli knocked in Wisniewski’s cross shot from the right but was deemed to be offside.

It was 3-0 just 5 minutes later as Wisniewski provided an excellent right-footed finish at the far post to Lloyd Buckby’s centre.

It could have been more because in the final minute Wisniewski’s shot was saved by Lutter and Dayne Wood then saw his effort blocked.
