1st March 2014 - Patchway edge out Yate youngsters as Longlevens stun Gala
This mornings leaders Gala Wilton suffer their heaviest defeat of the season going down 6-0 at home to local rivals and league challengers Longlevens.
Frampton maintain their third place position with a 2-0 win at Henbury.
At the bottom of the table Thornbury Town’s win over Berkeley Town moves them up a place to forth from bottom, but Rockleaze remain next to bottom after going down to Bristol Telephones. Yate Town Reserves are slipping down the table after losing at Patchway.
Yate Town Reserves young side put up a good display against a Patchway Town side who pressurised the visitors defence as much as they could in the opening fifteen minutes. Matt Tovey went close on three minutes and a minute later Phil Vice could have done better with a clear header on goal that he put wide. Yate weathered the storm and had their first attempt on the Patchway goal after ten minutes a twenty five yard shot from Sven Hopes that went straight into Ashley Wells’s arms. The only goal of the game came in the thirteenth minute from the penalty spot. Yate’s Daniel Worton committed the foul and Matt Tovey slotted the ball home from the spot. Twenty six minutes had passed before Yate ‘s second attempt on goal this time a powerful drive from Jordan Hickman that Wells dealt with comfortably. Matt Tovey was the driving source in the Patchway team and always looked dangerous around the box.
The second forty five minutes did not inspire and was limited to plenty of midfield play but very little activity in or around the box. Matt Tovey’s 20 yard free kick went jus over in the sixty fifth minute and Yate were limited to just one opportunity a minute from the end a very good low shot from Luke Burman that was well saved by Wells.
The fixture of the day had to be at Gala Wilton where local rivals and league challengers Longlevens were the visitors. Everyone was expecting a close encounter and 118 spectators turned out to watch, but it went badly wrong for the home side who conceded six goals without reply. Longlevens showed their intentions right from the start and had two early chances, but Shaun O’Connor was just off target with both. Gala had a great chance in the thirteenth minute but Adam Hemming was just wide with his effort. Longlevens were fortunate to take the lead on twenty minutes after a long ball over the home defence ran through to keeper Ollie Hall but his attempted clearance struck the oncoming Craig Martin who coolly controlled the loose ball to slide it into an empty net. A Ryan Hughes shot on twenty eight minutes could have levelled the score for Gala but it went just over the bar. Longlevens second goal in the thirty fifth minute came courtesy of a penalty that had the home players baffled. But Shaun O’Connor made no mistake from the spot. Gala were caught out again in the forty second minute with a long ball to the far post that was turned in by Shaun O’Conner to make it three - nil at the break. The home defence were caught napping again in the fifty fifth minute as Craig Martin took a quick free kick and sent brother Brad Martin clear to make it four. The home side did test the visitor’s keeper Mark Harris on a couple of occasions but he was in good form and kept the ball out. Two goals in the last two minute’s of the game a second for Brad Martin on eighty eight minutes and the sixth on eighty nine minutes a rare gaol from player manager James French who had come on as a substitute.
Frampton United retained their third place in the table with a double strike from Chris Fower to give them a two – nil win at Henbury. Honours were even until the forty fourth minute when Karl Palmer sent in a low cross across the face of the goal and Fower slid the ball home from three yards. The visitors went two up in the fiftieth minute after home keeper Cameron Tarr brought off a point blank save only to see the rebound go straight to Fower to drive the ball home. Henbury replied with a shot from Adam Rosser that struck the upright five minutes later and a thirty yard free kick from Jack Mills was well saved by the Frampton keeper Scott Georon. In the seventy fifth minute Georon turned Wes Pugh’s shot around the post. Henbury thought they had scored on eighty five minute when Billy George’s shot struck the underside of the crossbar and bounced clear. Frampton should have made it three nil right on ninety minutes from the penalty spot but Tarr saved Chris Fower’s shot.
Kings Stanley ran out three – one winners at home to Southmead CS Athletic. They took the lead on twenty minutes with an individual piece of skill from Ben Newman who broke down the left and cut inside before firing the ball home. The second on thirty minutes came from the midfield and some interchanging of passes before Steve Robertson was put clear to dummy the keeper amd run the ball into the net. The visitor’s pulled a goal back a minute into the second half from a cross that came inform the right to Luke Mills and although Ashley Gale got his hands to Mills’s shot he could not prevent it going in. Stanley regained the two goal cushion in te sixty fifth minute from a long diagonal ball that caught the visitors defence out and Steve Robertson ran through to score. Southmead had a great chance to pull a goal back but Luke Mills’s effort was just off target.
A Pete Fowler goal in the twenty sixth minute was enough to give Thornbury Town the three points against bottom of the table Berkeley Town. It came from a low corner to the near post where fowler was waiting to turn the ball home. Thornbury’s Luke Franklin went close on a couple of occasions and Toby Bennett was only just wide with his effort on eighty minutes. The visitors put up a good display but never really looked like scoring.
Chipping Sodbury Town had to come back from two goals down and down to ten men after Danny Coombes was dismissed late in the first half. Kingswood took the lead on twenty three minutes from a Simon Clarke shot from the edge of the box that squirmed under keeper Ed Mullins. A second goal for Kingswood on forty minute scrambled home by Jim Crossfield gave the visitors a comfortable lead. It was then made worse for the home side when Coombes got his marching orders. The home side put extra effort into their game in the second half and were rewarded on seventy five minutes when James Mackie pulled a goal back with a shot from just inside the box. With just two minutes to go Sodbury drew level. A shot from Dan Bendall was saved on the line by outfield player Josh Stokes who was cautioned and up stepped Lloyd Harding to score from the penalty spot. Sodbury almost stole the three points in the very last minute when Alex Fox set up Sam Jenkins but he was just wide of the goal with his shot.
Another defeat for Rockleaze Rangers against Bristol Telephones keeps them next to bottom of the table. Telephones took the lead on thirty six minutes a scrambled goal from Adam Gregory. The home side had a great chance to level when Telephones keeper Neil Hanson gave away a penalty but dependable penalty taker for the Rangers Aaron Day had his shot saved. On sixty five minutes Chris Misir gave Telephones a two goal cushion and in the dying minutes Savas Frangoullis gave away a penalty for the visitors, but Chris Misir missed from the spot.
