Taunton Town Clarets v RTC North Somerset 1
This was a competetive game played on a difficult playing surface and with, at times, a stiff breeze running from one end of the pitch to the other.
The first half was an intriguing battle of mainly attack v defence, with Taunton set up to keep a tight shape whilst playing into the wind. Indeed, there were few clear cut chances for RTCNS to break the deadlock, such was the discipline employed by Taunton.
The second half was a much more open affair, with new objectives set for the smaller Taunton team. They took the lead in the third quarter when a cross from the left somehow squeezed past RTCNS's unfortunate keeper.
The equaliser came from a deft header when RTCNS's centre forward moved in between his marker and the keeper to find the net. Soon after RTCNS took the lead after a powerful run through from a midfielder and a calm finish under pressure from a defender and the onrushing keeper.
In the final quarter, RTCNS made the game safe with a well struck long range free kick.
