FOOTBALL - Solihull Moors claim impressive win at Boreham Wood

MARK Beck and Jamey Osborne both scored to help Solihull Moors maintain their unbeaten start to the season with an impressive 2-1 victory at Boreham Wood.

Beck opened the scoring with a header from Osborne’s corner before the latter doubled Moors lead with a stunning effort into the top corner from distance.

Boreham Wood’s David Agbontohoma halved the deficit in the final minute of normal time as Moors held on to claim all three points at Meadow Park.

And the result means Solihull sit third in the National League table after three matches.

The home side almost took the lead from a corner midway through the first half as Beck made a crucial goalline clearance to keep the scores level.

However, Moors broke the deadlock on 39 minutes when Beck’s header across goal found the net from Osborne’s corner.

And Solihull doubled their lead on 52 minutes with a stunner as Osborne rifled a shot into the top corner from 25-yards out.

Moors went close to a third goal soon after as Beck powered a header against the crossbar from Jay Benn’s cross.

However, Boreham Wood made it a nervy finish after Agbontohoma headed in from Chris Bush’s long throw.

And the home side went close to an equaliser moments later as Moors goalkeeper Tommy Simkin made an excellent stop to keep his side ahead.

Solihull are next in action at home to Dorking Wanderers on Saturday, August 19 with kick-off at 3pm at the ARMCO Arena.
