13th September 2014 - Rockleaze win over Berkeley

Cheltenham Civil Service remains the leaders on goal difference over AEK Boco after their 1-1 draw today. Gala Wilton dropped to third after losing at home to Henbury.

This game kicked off 35 minutes late due to the late arrival of the Referee. Rockleaze Rangers recorded their second win of the season with a 3-1 home victory over Berkeley Town. Rangers were much the better side in the first half and should have been a couple of goals up before they eventually took the lead in the 18th minute from a free kick that was pumped into the box from the left and Aaron Day found the back of the net. Berkeley were limited to a couple of long range efforts early on that were never going to trouble Sam Burgess in the home goal. Three minutes after the Rangers goal Berkeley were unlucky when Dan Gaynor’s shot struck the upright. Carl Lakey could have given the home side a 2-0 lead in the 37th minute but somehow managed to miss the target when clear on goal. Ranger’s second goal was a good finish from Richard Bray dinking the ball over keeper Adam Smith after a great through ball from Ed Freeman.

Rangers almost got a third in the first minute of the second half but Berkeley managed to clear the ball off the line. From this point on and for the next 20 minutes Berkeley dominated the game pushing the home defence back. Joe Dalglish shot wide then Burgess brought of a good save from a Tom Palmer free kick pushing the ball over the bar. Martin Smith was next on target and again Burgess pushed the ball over. Town kept the pressure up and in the 65th minute Burgess brought off the save of the afternoon when he dived full length to palm away a Sam Strickland free kick fro 25 yards. A minute later Berkeley made it 2-1 again another free kick awarded on the left that was driven into the box by Tom Palmer and Martin Smith found the back of the net. Dan Gaynor should have levelled the score on 68 minutes after Sam Strickland weaved his way into the box from the right and slipped the ball to Gaynor who then lifted the ball way over the top. That glaring miss was followed by another from Gaynor on 77 minutes when he latched onto a long ball ran clear of the defence and then chipped the ball over Burgess but it went just the wrong side of the post. Against the run of play Rockleaze netted a third goal on 79 minutes when Rob Cox’s shot was spilled by keeper Smith and Carl Lakey was on hand to slip the ball home.

Surprise result of the day was at Gala Wilton where Henbury came away with a 4-2 win. The home side were first on the score sheet after 15 minutes from a cross into the box from the right that was turned in by Ellis Waugh. Henbury levelled the score on 49 minutes from a shot from Adam Rosser that was saved by the home keeper but the ball went straight to Sean Heal to drive home. The visitors then took the lead in the 65th minute with a cracking shot from Adam Rosser. Gala made it 2-2 in the 75th minute when he burst through the Henbury defence. Two late goals from Henbury the first on 85 minutes a brilliant 25 yard shot from Adam Rosser clipping the inside of the post before running back across goal and in. The final goal from the penalty spot in time added at the end was converted by dale Simpson.

Thornbury Town’s home fixture with Frampton United only produced two goals both scored in the second half. A minute into the second half Steve Jackson latched on to some indecision in the home defence to put Frampton one up and although Town pushed for the equaliser it never came until the 89th minute from a long ball into the box that Pete Fowler managed to bundle into the net.

Kings Stanley are slowly climbing the table after recording a 3-1 win at home to Hanham Athletic. The opening goal for Stanley on 13 minutes came from some good work by McDermott and Robertson with the final cross into the box from Robertson finding Liam Gale free to give them the lead. Dan Chandler then made it 2-0 after 20 minutes and it should have been 3-0 on 43 minutes but Dan Chandler hit the post from the penalty spot. A header form Gale in the 58th minute put the home side 3-0 in front, but almost immediately Mark Johns pulled a goal back for Hanham.

Cheltenham Civil Service remain top, but dropped their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw at home to AEK Boco. Jordan Scott gave the visitors the lead after 26 minutes but within a minute the home side drew level through leading goalscorer Jack Sklenar. The report indicated that it was not a very good game overall but both sides will settle for the draw.

Ellwood who have lost their last three games conceding 11 goals and failing to score pulled off a surprise result at Kingswood. The visitors had most of the play in the first 45 minutes and only some good saves by home keeper Chris Fox kept the score to 0-0 at the break. The winning goal for Ellwood came in the 60th minute turned in by Jamie Powell.

For the second week running Bristol Telephones net seven goals and only concede one. Last week it was Bishops Cleeve Reserves at home this week it was Patchway Town away who were on the end of a pasting. Dhani Golding hit the back of the net on four occasions backed up by a hat-trick from Jack Fillingham. The consolation goal for Patchway Town was scored by Chris Kritikos.
