The Owls’ Under-21s ran out comfortable winners against Bristol City on Sunday afternoon, winning 3-1 at Middlewood Road.
Strikes from Ryan Meadows, Paul Corry and a Rhys McCabe penalty ensured the points went the way of Wednesday, with Lewis Hall grabbing a consolation goal for the Robins.
It was a commanding performance by the Owls, who fully deserved the spoils.
Meadows opened the scoring on 24 minutes, powering in a firm header from McCabe’s cross.
Wednesday almost made it two seven minutes before half time when Corry spotted the keeper off his line but the Irishman narrowly missed the target from long range.
Corry wouldn’t be denied, though, and made it 2-0 just before the hour, finishing calmly after a clever link with Franck Betra.
The game was all but over two minutes later when the Owls were awarded a penalty from a corner and McCabe stroked home from 12 yards.
With nine minutes to go, the visitors had something to show for their part in an entertaining game at Middlewood Road as Hall embarked on a dazzling run before slotting beyond Joe Wildsmith.
