Locomotive Worle 6
White Hart 1
AFTER four straight defeats, Loco were looking to use this first round cup game to get back to winning ways.
After going close from two early corners, it seemed only a matter of time before the opening goal would come.
White Hart had other ideas and began to play some good football, testing the Loco keeper a couple of times. Loco finally opened the scoring, when Owen finished at the near post from a corner, Hart's keeper unable to keep the shot out.
More Loco pressure followed and a goal from Vaughan had the score at 2-0 at half time. Wanting to put the game out of reach Loco stepped up a gear from the restart and after 10 minutes scored two quick goals courtesy of Owen and Waterhouse to leave Hart with an uphill struggle to get back in the game.
A penalty from Fraser and a superb volley from Vaughan put the game beyond doubt. Loco then relaxed for the final 10 minutes and allowed Hart a consolation goal from the spot. Loco man of the match went to Belbin.
