12th April 2014 - Patchway win over Rockleaze

Longlevens stay top after a 2-1 win over Ellwood. Gala Wilton and Bristol Telephones remain second and third after, they both recorded wins.

Berkeley Town have closed the gap to one point on Yate Town Res after their win at Bristol Academy, Yate Town Res went down at home to Gala Wilton.

Patchway Town gained revenge for their one – nil defeat in the Les James League Cup semi-Final a few weeks ago at Rockleaze with a one – nil win at home in the league. For the first twenty three minutes of this game both sides cancelled each other out with plenty of midfield play but no goal mouth action at all. The first real chance fell to the home side with a good break down the right by full-back Chad Horseman whose cross looked dangerous but was headed clear by Rangers defender Aaron Day. In the twenty ninth minute Matt Tovey should have given Patchway the lead when he latched onto a good ball over the Rangers defence but with a clear shot on goal the Rangers keeper Nick Adams covered the angle at the near post and brought off a great save. Town took the lead just two minutes later again a long ball caught the Rangers defence out and it left Jimmy Potts clear to fire the ball into the bottom corner giving Adams no chance. Rangers had a great chance to level the score on thirty five minutes but James Kenway’s effort on goal was easily saved by James Kaminski. Three minutes later Kenway had another good chance but again it was well saved by Kaminski.

Two minutes into the second half a cross into the box from the right found Phil Vice who hooked the ball goal-wards but it went just the wrong side of the post. A shot from Rangers Savas Frangoullis from the edge of the box sped across goal but went wide of the upright. At the other end Jimmy Potts found some space for a shot at goal but that went just wide as well. In the sixty forth minute Adams brought off a good save from a Potts header the cross from Tovey coming in from the right. A header from Rangers Nathan Bryer went wide of the post this time the provider was Ben Lear. Rangers kept Kaminski busy this time the keeper had to punch clear to get the ball away. In time added Rangers almost got on level terms with a forty yard free kick struck by Sam Andrews that Kaminski misjudged but luckily it struck the crossbar and was cleared.

Berkeley Town are going for the great escape after picking up three points at Bristol Academy to close the gap to one point on Yate Town Reserves. The home side took the lead after just two minutes when Marcus Thatcher pulled the ball back for Toby Waterman to score. Berkeley levelled on eleven minutes with a superb strike from the edge of the box by Sam Gillison. Dave Sims-Burgess put the home side back in front on sixteen minutes with a low shot into the bottom corner. A looping shot over the home keeper from Joe Blakeney on twenty five minutes levelled the score once more. A through ball from Tom Palmer found Sam Strickland to put the visitors ahead for the first time on fifty one minutes and in the sixty fifth minute Sam Strickland crossed for Paul Brooks to make it a four -two win for the bottom Club.

Yate Town Reserves shocked visitor’s Gala Wilton when the rushed into a three – nil lead in the first fifteen minutes. Jordan Hickman started the ball rolling after six minutes when he rushed clear of the visitors defence to open the scoring. Four minutes later Liam Pullen rounded the visitor’s keeper to make it two – nil. Jordan Hickman was involved in the third goal when he broke down the flank and crossed into the box for Lewis Hughes to net. Gala took their time but suddenly realised what had happened and hit back on twenty seven minutes when Ryan Hughes scored at the far post following a free kick. An unfortunate header into his own net by Joe Guest in the thirty sixth minute pulled the score back to three – two by the break. The visitors took just two minutes into the second half to level the score with a free kick from Dave Wilkinson. Liam Halliday then increased the lead and a fifth goal from Lee Allen spoiled the day for the young Yate side.

Thornbury Town found their feet again with a four – nil win over visitors Hanham Athletic. This was a game that did not take off until the fortieth minute although good chances had been squandered by the Thompson brother Steve and Danny with Josh Pirie also missing a good chance. Thornbury got the opening goal they deserved when Danny Thompson surprised the visitor’s keeper with a near post shot that he managed to save but it fell nicely for Josh Pirie to score. A second goal on fifty two minutes was a piece of individual skill from young Pirie who flicked the ball past the defender with his head before steaming away to drive the ball home. It was Pirie who was involved in the third goal when he was tackled on the edge of the box the ball ran across to Nathan Irwin who drove a low shot past the visitor’s keeper. Unfortunately Pirie had to leave the field with an injury but it did not deter the home side and scored a forth goal on seventy four minutes from a low cross into the box by Danny Thompson for Luke Franklin to drive home. Hanham Athletic had an off day and never really got into this game with the home keeper never troubled throughout.

Bristol Telephones came back from a goal down to win two – one against Kingswood. The very strong wind affected the game throughout and the players found the going hard. Kingswood took the lead after fifteen minutes from a dreadful back pass, and although the initial shot was saved the ball ran free to Craig Freeman to score. The home side were back on level term after twenty six minutes when Mike Grist sent Martin Blacker clear to chip the ball over the keeper. Telephones grabbed the three points in the sixty third minute from a corner taken by Ryan Hicks headed on by Kerion Hunt for Jack Fillingham to turn the ball in from six yards. Kingswood did have a chance to level later in the game but missed the opportunity.

Leaders Longlevens also had to come from behind to win this game against visitors Ellwood. The first chance fell to Darryl Addis who should have given Ellwood the lead but for a good save from home keeper Mark Harris. Ellwood took the lead on thirty minutes with a great goal from Gary Wildin hooking the ball over his shoulder and past Harris. Dave Rich almost levelled before the break but for a good save by the visitor’s keeper Dane Adams. Two minutes into the second half the home side were level Brad Martin netting at the far post from a Shaun O’Connor cross. The home side went in front on sixty five minutes the ball was pushed through to Nick Humphreys who turned sharply on the edge of the box to drive a low shot past Adams.
