Match Report

Following a close match earlier in the season, SDCC welcomed South Gloucester (SG) to Ashburton for the return fixture.

First Quarter

A well contested first quarter, SG started the game much brighter than SDCC with lots of early pressure without being able to craft a clear opportunity at goal. SDCC managed the first meaningful chance on goal when Oscar Bowerman put a shot from the edge of the penalty area just wide. SG saw a long range, speculative effort held by keeper Callum Wood, followed shortly afterwards by a similar effort from SDCC’s Alfie Tucker after some patient build up play. Chances on goal were at a premium and the quarter ended 0-0.

Second Quarter

SDCC made four changes to their lineup which resulted in a much more focussed start to the second period. There was an early chance for Will Bateman, after a fine through ball from Sam Stapleton that was dealt with efficiently by the SG keeper, who then watched a Daniel Koita effort go over the crossbar. The keeper was in action again gathering the ball safely after another Stapleton and Bateman combination, and saw another Koita effort go wide, before making another fine save. SG had a number of long range opportunities themselves and finally opened the scoring just before half time, pouncing on an error from the SDCC keeper.

Third Quarter

Buoyed by taking the lead, SG made a strong start to the third period. The first effort on goal went to SG, followed by a free kick which went wide and a shot on goal from a well taken corner which forced a fine save. Immediately, SDCC broke the length of the pitch at pace, Hugo Griffiths squared a ball from the right hand side into the SG area allowing Bateman to tuck home an equaliser. SDCC had a great opportunity to make it two from a fantastic 40 yard cross field pass from Alfie Tolland to Koita, who forced another fine block from the SG keeper. Their second goal was a composed finish from Griffiths, latching onto a well weighted pass from midfielder Sam Cunningham. Shortly afterwards SG won a penalty which was emphatically dispatched into the top corner to level the scores at 2-2.

Fourth Quarter

With all to play in this tight encounter, SDCC started the period with a couple of tame efforts at goal, but SG ultimately edged ahead with a long looping shot that beat the keeper and went in off the crossbar. SG sought to further their goal tally soon after, being allowed another free shot at goal which this time went straight at the keeper. In a lively final 10 minutes SDCC equalised with a fantastic 25 yard powerful strike from Tolland. SG rallied again with a sharp low shot forcing the keeper to save. SDCC finally scored a fourth, following a penetrating pass by centre-back Tolland, fine work on the left hand side from Ryan White and a cool finish from Tre Hansford from inside the area. SDCC then wrapped up the win with a fifth goal from another White and Hansford combination, which this time saw White let fly with a clean shot from the edge of the box into the top corner. Final score 5-3.

Overall a well balanced match with both teams creating opportunities and battling to the final whistle. We thank South Gloucester for a game played in good spirit and wish them the best for the rest of the season.
