Kewstoke Lions 4

Crewkerne Rangers 3

THIS was a game that Kewstoke Lions will want to forget. The first half was the poor and Crewkerne Rangers deserved their 2-1 lead.

With a change of formation, Kewstoke dominated the second half, but somehow a last minute lob from the halfway line by Chris Hay went into the net, to send the game into extra time.

Extra time was much the same as the second half, with Kewstoke camping in the Crewkerne half. A great move in midfield put Danny Stanevan through and with his cool finish Kewstoke thought they had won the game, but Crewkerne went straight up the other end and equalised.

With the game now looking like going to penalties, Kewstoke threw everything forward. Chatterley showed good awareness and took a quick throw in to Rich Collins, who beat four players and pulled the ball back to Scott Thompson who put Kewstoke through to next round with an exquisite finish

Mike Warberton Electricals man of the match goes to Steve Channing.

St Crusades 11

Bottle Bar 6

THE Bottle Bar took an early lead but never managed to control the game and the first half ebbed and flowed as six goals were shared.

Looking to build on the first half, the Bottle Bar pressed on but were undone at the back and struggled to create any pressure. Great work up front from Jim Owen and Joel Paige ensured Bottle had a chance to get back in it, but eventually St Crusades ran out 11-6 winners.

Bottle Bar man of the match was Dave Fowler

Locomotive Worle 1

Woodspring Park Rangers 5

RANGERS had the better of the early possession, but couldn't break the Loco defence down for some time.

Rangers finally made their superiority count with two quick goals midway through the half, the first after a long solo run and the second an unstoppable shot from long range.

Loco upped their game and the play levelled out before another solo run from midfield went unchallenged and Rangers were 3-0 up at half time.

Loco improved in the second half as they went about chasing down their opponents and were rewarded for their efforts with a penalty, Vaughan converting. However, this was to prove their only consolation as despite the excellent Loco defending Rangers managed two more to run out 5-1 winners.
