19th October 2019 - Wick maintain pace at top of table
Top versus bottom Patchway Town at home to Wick and just a single goal was enough for the leaders to take the three points and a first away win of the season. Wick started the brighter but the home side defended well and it took until the 35th minute before Wick managed to get the ball in the back of the net and it was a little fortunate. The ball was crossed into the box from the left it took a deflection to Grant Hewitt on the right of the goal and he fired it back across home keeper Sam Burgess into the far corner.
Wick had the better of the second half Dan Sheldon missed a good chance close in the ball beating him at the far post. Midway through the second half Burgess brought off a very good save to deny Jordan Scott. At the other end Dan Cockram got his shot on target but it was kicked away by the Wick keeper Tyler Edwards. A few minutes later Luke Garbacz was in a good position but fired over the bar for the home side. Patchway’s only real chance of the game fell in the 75th minute when a ball was crossed into the box Shane Walker was completely unmarked in the centre of goal and just the keeper to beat but he headed wide of the target. The last real chance to score fell to Jordan Scott in the 83rd minute but he headed over from a corner.
Gala Wilton hit another four goals in a 4-1 win at home to Hanham Athletic. They only managed the one in the first 45 minutes and that came after 8 minutes from across that was headed back across goal and Ryan Dobbins was there to head home. Early in the second half Gala scored a second this time it came from a corner that the visitors keeper tried to collect but missed it altogether and it left Shay Lyons with a simple tap in. Hanham hit back with a solo effort from Connor Hartley who broke down the wing cut in and fired the ball home. The home side made it 3-1 when Dobbins broke down the flank squared the ball across to Jay Dare to finish it off. The home side netted a fourth on 84 minutes when a Kieran Bryce-Ingles through ball found Martin Smith to hammer it home.
Only one goal in the first 45 minutes between Rockleaze Rangers and Broadwell Amateurs and that came in the 32nd minute when Dan Webb turned in a free kick from Liam Henderson. Toby Walwin fired in the second from 20 yards after the ball had been headed out from a corner. Rory Langdon then made it 3-0 when he tapped in a low drive across goal from Joe Weare. On 83 minutes Dan Bailey got the ball in the net on from Jack Hannam free kick but it was ruled out for offside. But 5 minutes later Harry Madge drilled the ball in after a goalmouth scramble to make it 4-0.
Bromley Heath United recorded their second win with a 3-2 success over today’s visitors Quedgeley Wanderers. They opened the scoring on 3 minutes when Joss Slater headed in from a Luke Bessell free kick. At the other end Wanderers Dorian Colling struck the crossbar. Wanderers keeper Farmer made a great save when he blocked Joss Goss shot at close range. Wanderers Nathan Payne then saw his shot kicked of the line before Harry Maggs headed home to give the home side a 2-0 lead at the break. Early in the second half Bromley’s Joe Goss headed just over from an Adam Campbell cross. Dorian Colling then missed a golden opportunity to pull one back for Wanderers when he was clear on goal but shot wide. Following that the home side took a 3-0 lead when Luke Bessell turned in a Joe Goss cross. Wanderers pulled a goal back on 70 minutes from the penalty spot after Josh Wilson was fouled and Louis Peyton netted from the spot. A second goal from the visitors ten minutes from the end after a mix up in defence with Dorian Colling finding the back of the Bromley net and made it a tight finish but the home side held on.
Little Stoke three Sharpness nil was the final score at Little Stoke Park this afternoon. Stoke scored early on when Luke Meacham drilled in a cross into the box. On 19 minutes Kieron Moore saw his shot well saved by the Sharpness keeper. Then on 31 minutes Sharpness got into a muddle at the back and Nathan Moore made it 2-0. Williams had another chance just before the break but his 20-yard drive just went past the outside of the post. The home side sealed the points in the second half with a third goal after some good work the ball was hit out to the flank and Luke Meacham sent the ball over for Blaine Skuse to drill home.
Frampton United got out of jail with a very late penalty from Ryan Vincent after Henbury had taken a late lead themselves. Ryan Vincent should have opened the scoring with a one-on-one situation after 4 minutes but shot wide of the target. On 9 minutes Henbury’s Adam Rosser saw his long-range effort hit the crossbar. Vincent then stuck the upright from a free kick with the visitor’s keeper grabbing the rebound. Henbury had a great chance to take the lead on 84 minutes from the penalty spot but George Louds shot was well saved by the home keeper. However, Loud made up for that miss just 2 minutes later when he scored from the edge of the box. Then came the late equaliser from the spot by Ryan Vincent.
AEK Boco only managed a 0-0 draw at home to Hardwicke after the visitors had to defend for a great deal of the game. It was a tale of missed chances for the home side according to the report and both sides felt they should have had a penalty, but in both cases, they were turned down. Hardwicke will probably be well satisfied by the result as it gives them another point to try and climb the table.More Here
