Bishops Lydeard 2
WINSCOMBE lost their Somerset County Cup quarter final away at Bishops Lydeard.
Playing against Premier League opposition, Winscombe conceded a goal after only five minutes. They lost Jamie Chunder soon after to be replaced by Newman. This seemed to galvanize the visitors, who fought hard to gain some momentum and Mikey Flint blazed a couple of half chances over.
By the end of the half, Stoves and Hughes, who was magnificent all game, were gaining control. Massey and Hosey were coming out on top of the aerial battle with Horwood doing a job on the flying winger.
After the break, Newman lobbed the keeper from 20 yards, only for the ball to bounce on top of the bar. The visitors did score when after good work from Clark, Hughes and Flint, the ball fell to Olly Hutchinson, who powered home.
With only five minutes remaining, the ball was headed into his own net by the unfortunate Hosey.
Winscombe threw on Hooper and Willis in the hope of getting an equaliser and Willis was fouled in front of the referee, who decided to give only a yellow card instead of red.
Stand-in managers Brean and Hughes were delighted with the way the team acquitted themselves against higher opposition. Winscombe Fish Bar man of the match was Dave Hughes.
