YTCST 5 - Taunton Town 1
Taunton Town started the game very well and deserved to take an early lead. They almost doubled the lead when they had a header hit the bar from a corner kick. As the period went on YTCST came back into the game and created some chances of there own. If it wasn't from so great blocking from thier defenders YTCST could have well equalised. On the whole, the 1st period was very open and both teams could have scored a couple of goals.
In the second period YTCST started very brightly and played some really good football. YTCST came very close to an equaliser when William Porter hit the crossbar with a great header direct from the corner kick. After some good pressure YTCST finally found an equaliser through Ashley Newman. There was some good build up play and a great low close from right was met by Ashley who placed it into the goal.
YTCST continued their good form into the third period, where they were able to add two more goals from Joseph Becky. Both finishes were calmly placed into the corner of the net, not giving the opposing team's GK a chance.
Taunton Town came out fighting in the fourth period and created some good chances. As Taunton were chasing the game and pushing forward, they were left a little exposed and were caught on the counter attack where Ashley Newman pick up the ball and scored from distance with a great strike. YTCST scored their fifth goal with another break. Joseph Becky was driving forward with the ball. It deflected to Oliver Francis in the penalty box, where he calmly finished by placing the ball into the corner of the goal.
I wanted to make a special mention to the Taunton Town goalkeeper who had a fantastic game. Some of the saves he made to deny goals were absolutely fantastic. It was a good game with both teams trying to play the right way.
