11th November 2017 - Henbury grap victory at Ruardean

Just one league match this week with the second round of the Les James League Cup taking place.

Our visit this week was to Ruardean Hill Rangers who were taking on Henbury. Both teams had recorded away wins the previous week so a good competitive game was the order of the day and that is exactly what we got. Henbury shot out of the blocks right from the off with the home side having to defend and a shot from Keiron Cooper was only just wide after 3 minutes. A couple of minutes later Cooper was on target with a good shot but keeper Aaron Underwood saved well. Underwood made another good save to deny Jacob Hicks before the home side’s first real attach on 9 minutes resulted in a free kick on the left side of the box. The ball was knocked to the far post and Rangers Ricky Tingle’s header went just wide. The home side settled and started to take the game to Henbury made two great clearances off the line the second looked like it was going in from a Matt Barnard header. On 33 minutes Henbury had a great chance to take the lead but Peter Jarrett shot wide. On 41 minutes Underwood brought off a fantastic save to push Andy Dickinson point blank shot away.

This game was too close to call and on 52 minutes Henbury made the break through from a low Adam Rosser corner from the left that was poorly defended and Aaron Rosser hammered the ball home. Henbury keeper Ryan Fogarty then saved well from Rangers Luke Brown and with the home side pressing the visitors defence were being peppered with shots which somehow they managed to block. Jacob Hicks went close for Henbury on 62 minutes when he cut in from the left and let fly from the edge of the box the ball skimming past the post with Underwood diving full length. A minute later Luke Johnson saw his header go just the wrong side of the post for Rangers. Ranger did have the ball in the back of the Henbury net on 69 minutes but it was ruled out for offside. The home side had just one more chance to level on75 minutes a free kick floated into the box but headed wide of the target.

Les James League Cup Round 2 - Sponsored by Boca Teamwear

Frampton United – Gala Wilton – Stonehouse Town and Thornbury Town are the four Clubs through to the semi-finals.

Lebeq United had to play their home tie at Gala Wilton because their home facilities at Oakland’s Park were unavailable. Gala opened the scoring in the 15th minute when the Lebeq defence stopped thinking that Ryan Dobbins was offside and he ran clear and rounded Daniel Jesionowski. A cross from Rick Davis saw Twaine Plummer strike the upright for Lebeq on 20 minutes. The Gala keeper then made two great saves to keep out shots from Twaine and Elan Plummer. On 50 minutes Lebeq levelled the score when Omar Lindsey sent Rick Davis clear. Lebeq were now in charge and took the lead in the 65th minute Rick Davis beat the offside and ran clear to score. In the 89th minute against the run off play Gala grabbed an equaliser when John Antonio prodded the ball home following a scramble in the goalmouth. The game was settled on penalties with Gala Wilton going through 3-2.

Little Stoke started well with Jessie Owens and Sam Hill efforts just clearing the bar. At the other end Manolo Marquez Espada should have scored for Frampton but hit his shot over the bar. Then Lewis Wilton went close for the visitors before nick Rugman shot wide for the home side after Owens had set the move up. Frampton opened the scoring on 28 minutes from a Lewis Wilton pass to Ryan Vincent to fire past keeper Amin Jones. The home side hit back in the 38th minute when Ethan Tucker headed home Jordan Yeo’s corner. Frampton’s Nathan Dennis’ shot from the edge of the box was only just over the bar. Then just 2 minutes before the break Frampton’s Manolo Marquez Espada stabbed the ball home after a scramble in the box. On 60 minutes the visitors went 3-1 up when Ryan Vincent headed home from a Espada corner. Visitor’s keeper James Marklove was called upon to make a good save from Jordan Yeo on 73 minutes and then Matt Price headed over from a corner. Frampton sealed their passage into the Semi-finals with a forth goal on 84 minutes Fraser Wilson knocking the ball in after a scramble in the box.

A good draw for both teams with either one likely to move into the Semi-final but it was Thornbury Town who progresses with a 3-1 win over Wick. Thornbury went ahead after 37 minutes from a move down the right which was started and finished by Brandon Benjamin firing the ball home from a very tight angle. Within a minute it was 2-0 to the home side when Craig Lancastle picked up the ball between the halfway line and the visitor’s 18 yard box pushed forward and then superbly shipped the Wick keeper from the edge of the box. A minute before the break Wick pulled a goal back when James Pocock headed home at the near post. The second half started well for the visitors but they failed to create any clear cut chances and on 83 minutes a low hard free kick around the wall by Thornbury’s Toby Bennett sealed the passage for Town into the semi-final.

Stonehouse Town versus Kingswood was a close affair looking at the result and it took until the 34th minute for Luke Soule to turn in Andy Maryon’s cross to give the home side the lead. Kingswood keeper Chris Fox then did exceptionally well to keep the score to 1-0 saving shots from Liam Gale – Lee Keveren – Andy Maryon and Lewis Fogg before the break. Immediately the second half got underway Kingswood drew level the ball falling nicely in the box for Tom Devine to prod home, but within a minute the home side retook the lead from a great free kick from Lewis Fogg that curled right onto the head of Luke Barstow to head home. 5 minutes later it was 3-1 as across from Liam Gale found Luke Soule who was brought down in the box leading to a penalty. Adam Ireland took the kick Fox saved it but it went straight back for Ireland to drive home. Tom Devine had a great chance to reduce the arrears on 65 minutes but made up for his miss a couple of minutes later to make it 3-2. There was no further scoring so Stonehouse are also through to the Semi-final.

Southmead CS Athletic v Hanham Athletic was postponed.
