Wick 0 - 0 Alton (1-4 Pens)

Posted: 11.09.21

This game of football can drain you of every emotion and continues to prove year after year why so many love it.

This was a game on paper that Aton were expected to win and they were clearly the better side over the 90 minutes but every football cliche ever written was proven.

The visitors dominated possession throughout the game but the final ball just wouldn't drop. The home keeper made 4 top class saves, the defenders blocked anything that was goal bound and on more than one occasion shots from good positions were scuffed wide of the target.

The second half was particularly one way traffic but the home side dug in as the clock ticked down. Wave after wave of attacks were built on controlled football and at no stage did Alton resort to just throwing hopeful balls into the Wick goalmouth.

Then in the 87th minute out of nowhere Wick were awarded a penalty after the rarest of forays into the box. Were we about to witness one of those smash and grabs that occasionally grip us? Oh no, Keiron Greene had other ideas keeping Alton in the competition with a great save, diving to his left, the visitors defence smothering the ball clear.

Cue the final whistle. He then went on to save two more penalties in the shootout that followed that whistle, extra time no longer a necessity.

The right result eventually but the drama of the cup is still alive and kicking.
