Paulton Rovers V South West Blues
Paulton Rovers welcomed Blues to Somervale for this cup game.
Previously we have had great games with these two teams. This was no exception.
Blues were, as always a very good side, technically, probbably the best Rovers have come up against.
The lads from Devon commanded the game with posetion stats well in their favour.
It did however take Rovers to make a mistake for Blues to get their opener.
Rovers in the first half were against the strong wind but did have their chances.
Efforts from Jamie, Ben and Joe were not far off of the mark.
Blues continued to dominate and commanded a 2-0 lead at the break.
The second half turnaround with the wind did make it a bit easier for Rovers and more of the posetion, especially in the Blues half was won by Rovers.
This didnt change the fact that Blues have quality in all of the 16 players that traveled up to Somerset today and they showed by going 3-0 up with only 15 minutes to go.
Rovers didnt give up, more and more pressure was put on the Blues defence and as the ball came loose, Alfie stepped up to strike the ball in the top left of the Blues goal, a great finish.
Rovers were straight back into the Blues from the kick off, Freddie was already making it tough for the Blues defense and he got his reward in the final minutes with a clse range finish.
Rovers went for an equaliser but the clock had ran down, final score Paulto Rovers 2 Blues South West 3.
Paulton Rovers Players, Coaches and Parents wish Blues the best of luck in the competition going forward.
