Johnson Brace Steers Walsgrave to Victory


Byline: Iain Green

TYLER JOHNSON'S splendid brace allowed Walsgrave Juniors to snaffle an invaluable three points as they eased out a spirited Brinklow 3-1 at Walsgrave Primary School.

Johnson's double capped a thoroughly impressive performance from the playmaker, with his strike being backed up by Jack Davis' opener and outweighing Teddy Vincent's second-half consolation for the visitors.

The game burst into life within the opening minute, as Brinklow's Joe Augusts thundered a left-foot shot narrowly wide of the post, before Walsgrave grabbed the lead from their first foray into Brinklow's half.

Walsgrave hit back, and a great passing move involving Harry Crampsie, O'Donnell, Hanish Puwraha and Johnson teed up Davis, who looped an effort against the top of the crossbar.

But the hosts were then grateful to three last-ditch tackles in quick succession from the alert Josh Tipple, who denied Augusts when he was set to pull the trigger, before thwarting Vincent twice in as many minutes as Brinklow sought to get back into the match.

However, Walsgrave all but finished the match as a contest inside the second minute of the second period, as Johnson's shot from distance squirmed through Wilson's grasp and nestled into the corner of the net after a little help from the post. …
