7th December 2013 - Southmead win as Rockleaze score all the goals
Leaders Longlevens get back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Frampton United and open up a five point gap as Gala Wilton go down 2-1 at home to Bristol Academy. Ellwood remain in third place with Southmead CS Athletic in fourth. Rockleaze Rangers drop to second from bottom after their 2-1 defeat at home to Southmead CS Athletic. Thornbury move out of the bottom two.
Rockleaze Rangers and Southmead CS Athletic met for the second week running only this time it was a league encounter. Last weeks game produced six goals but this week it was a different story. Southmead were the much better side in the first forty five minutes and could well have gone in at half time with a four goal lead but for the fantastic performance by the Rockleaze goalkeeper Sam Burgess. Southmead actually won this game with two own goals in the end. The first of the goals came in only the second minute of the game from a low corner driven in from the left that was sliced past Burgess by fullback Neil Simons. The home side had a great chance to level on fifteen minutes but Theo Coombs who had a clear shot on goal blasted his shot well wide. Burgess brought of a double save in the nineteenth minute as he parried a Luke Mills shot straight into the path of Rob Wilks who hit his shot straight at the keeper. Burgess then brought off another great save from a 25 yard Gary Booth shot that was heading for the top corner in the twentieth minute. Four minutes later Burgess brought of a fantastic save to deny Danny Glancy scoring from point blank range. Luke Coghlan almost made it two nil on the half hour but his low shot went just past the far post. The home side made little inroads into the visitors defence and when Theo Coombs had a half chance just before the break he shot straight at Sebastian Gribble in the visitor’s goal.
For the first twenty seven minutes of the second half neither side made any inroads with both teams losing possession on the edge of the box. The first sign of any involvement in the box came from the visitors on seventy three minutes when Burgess brought off another good save to deny Southmead a second goal. The home side should definitely have levelled the score in the seventy fifth minute as Otis Wilson broke clear of the Southmead defence but failed to get the ball past Gribble as he raced from his line to the edge of the box and blocked the shot that fell nicely for Theo Coombs who then fired his shot wide of the target. The visitors had their second bit of fortune in the eightieth minute as a low cross into the box from the left was well struck by Luke Mills but again saved by Burgess only to see the ball rebound on to Valentin Pomfret and into the Rockleaze net. With just two minutes of normal time left Rangers substitute Oshane West had a clear shot on goal but it took a deflection away for a corner. With time added being played a header from Ed Freeman was spilled by Sebastian Gribble and Savas Frangoullis was on hand to pull a goal back for Rangers.
The leaders got back to winning ways at Frampton United but it might have been a different story if the home side had taken their chances early on. A cross into the box on thirty minutes found Kris Bully unmarked but he scuffed his shot and the danger was averted. Just five minutes later United had another good chance to take the lead as a long ball over the top fell straight to Karl Palmer but his attempt to chip the keeper failed miserably. Longlevens broke the deadlock on sixty five minutes when Scott Goodhall was left unmarked from a free kick to head home. The visitors made it two nil on seventy two minutes with a thunderbolt of a shot from thirty five yards from Craig Beaton. Longlevens should have made it three in the eighty eighth minute as Shaun O’Conner broke clear of the united defence but then saw his shot brilliantly saved by Dan Borg in the home goal.
Bristol Academy recorded an excellent result at Gala Wilton. The Academy followed on their success over the league leaders last week to defeat second in the table this week. There was lots of action in this game with both sides creating chances. A miss kick by Josh Jones almost let in Myron Turner after ten minutes, then in the eighteenth minute Lee Allen headed wide for the home side. After twenty one minutes Adam Mahmood should have opened the scoring for the visitors heading wide from six yards. Craig Artus then shot wide for the home side before Dave Wilkinson had his shot cleared off the line by the Academy. The visitors took the lead just before the break when a cross into the box was turned in by George Binding. Tom Waterman of the Academy had the ball in the back of the net in the fifty second minutes but it was ruled out for offside. The visitors increased their lead on seventy seven minutes with a goal from Sam Johnson. The home side had previously made a triple substitution but found themselves down to ten men in the eightieth minute as Greg Artus had to leave the field with an injury. However, this did not deter them and they pulled a goal back in the eighty third minute with a shot across the keeper from Ryan Hughes. The home side pushed hard for the last few minutes but the score-line remained the same.
Chipping Sodbury Town hit the jackpot in their home fixture with Hanham Athletic with a resounding 7-1 win. The home side were bolstered by having the five missing player from last weeks fixture at Patchway Town and it certainly made the difference. The star man was Justin Cattle who chipped in with his first hattrick of the season. Cattle opened the scoring on five minutes and then set up James Mackie to net the second on sixteen minutes. Cattle then scored a second on thirty four minutes to give the home side a comfortable three nil lead at the break. Dan Bendall’s pass put James Mackie through to make it four nil in the fiftieth minute. A superb free kick from Ollie Clark made it number five. Hanham pulled a goal back in the seventy fourth minute with a strike from Bill Hodge but within a minute Sodbury scored again when James Mackie set up Danny Coombes for number six. Justin Cattle rounded it all off with his third of the afternoon in the eighty seventh minute.
Ellwood’s home form continued with a three one win over visitors Henbury. They were rather fortunate with the first goal after fifteen minutes when Henbury cleared the corner but the clearance fell to Derek Roberts who sent the ball back into the box and it took a deflection off a Henbury defender into the net. The second on thirty minutes was a brotherly effort as Julian Addis’s pass to brother Darryl was finished off by the striker. Alex Brown made it three nil to the home side in the second half with a shot from just inside the box, but Henbury went straight up the other end to pull a goal back from a cross into the six yard box that was fumbled by home keeper Tim Yemm and the ball finished up in the back of the net.
Berkeley Town are rooted to the foot of the table after yet another defeat this time at the hands of Kingswood. The home side started well and went ahead on four minutes Chris Andrews heading home at the near post from a corner. Berkeley let Kingswood back into the game in the twenty third minute when Pete Lavis committed a rash tackle in the box leading to a penalty. Lee Williams took the kick to level the score. The visitors grabbed the winner in the seventy sixth minute after a scramble in the box Jim Crossfield slotted home.
Thornbury Town gave themselves a lift after two defeats on the trot with a three one win at home to Bishops Cleeve Reserves. The home side took a three goal lead in this fixture with the first of the goals coming after twenty eight minutes from the penalty spot fired home by Tom Webb. A second from Steve Thompson on forty four minutes the striker taking the ball past the defender before planting his shot in the corner of the net. Town’s keeper Mark Garbacz kept the home side in the game with a great double save in the forty eighth minute. The visitor’s keeper Dan Greenhouse also brought of a magnificent double save to deny Dan Thompson and then Toby Bennett in the fifty seventh minute. Thornbury made it three nil on seventy minutes with a header from Toby Bennett, but a minute later Tim Arnolds terrific shot from the edge of the box pulled a goal back for Cleeve.
Yate Town Reserves gained a good three nil victory at Bristol Telephones. The three goals were spread out with the first coming in the fortieth minute a left foot drive from the edge of the box from Dan Clement. Ryan Nicholls headed the second on the hour and a break away in the eighty fifth minute saw Sam Gilchrist net number three.
Patchway Town v Kings Stanley turned out to be a very boring game according to their spokesman with neither side being able to break the deadlock as it ended nil – nil.
