PETER SYMONDS FOOTBALLERS RETAIN HAMPSHIRE COUNTY CUP

Peter Symonds were the first to get the ball down and start to play their natural passing game, finding space out wide to attack in. With very little in the way of chances, the first real chance resulted in a goal for Peter Symonds. Theo Wolfarth found himself in possession out wide left, dribbled between two players before getting the ball from out of his feet and hitting an unstoppable strike into the top left hand corner of the Barton Peveril goal.

In response, Barton Peveril took a more aggressive response with good effect, finding space in behind the Peter Symonds defence and eventually getting their equaliser just before the half time break.

In a second half much the same as the first, Barton Peveril will feel aggrieved at not being given a penalty, and this was followed by two superb saves from either goalkeeper respectively, both from close range. Three changes from the Peter Symonds bench gave them the attacking impetus once more and it was left to the match winner, Theo Wolfarth, to once again stamp his class on the game. He won a ball from a momentary lapse in concentration from the Barton Peveril defence, driving down the left hand side, and firing a low cross across the six yard box for Ray Sutherden to poke in at the far post.

A true cup final with plenty of determination from either side, but a bit of class at the right time saw Peter Symonds College emerge victorious.
