Paulton vs South Somerset RTC
Paulton Rovers welcomed South Somerset RTC to Norton Hill school on Saturday.
Both teams got off to a good, quick start but it was South Somerset who opened the scoring after winning the ball in midfield, getting into the box and finishing smartly. After two quick fire goals Paulton found themselves three goals down at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter was similar to the first, with South Somerset scoring a few goals as well as one from a corner kick.
The Paulton players battled hard through into the third quarter and
were reduced to the bare 11 after injuries to some players. Still they kept trying and pushing for a goal with Kenzie Luton pressing well and winning the ball numerous times in the midfield to try and start some counter attacks. South Somerset then scored a couple of goals again including a good finish from gold awarded player Olly Manchip, at the end of the third quarter it was 9-0 to the away side.
In the final quarter Paulton Rovers kept to their pressing game and worked hard to deny South Somerset the opportunities to get forward, the few times that they did get through Evan Young, playing in the heart of defence, was there to stop them, earning himself today’s Sliver player award in the process. Paulton still continued to battle hard against a much more physical side and left everything they had out on the pitch. The final quarter had great football from both sides and Paulton were unlucky not to score, meaning the game finished 9-0 but there was a huge effort from Paulton throughout.
Well done to South Somerset RTC who played some great football on the day. Good luck for the rest of the season and we are looking forward to the away game.
