Sticker 0 Torpoint 0
In one of the few games played in the SWPL Sticker started the game introducing new keeper Jamie Blatchford signed from Dobwalls with the howling wind at their backs but were finding it difficult to control the ball as were Torpoint but did carve out a few chances in the first half where the Torpoint keeper Jason Peters made a couple of decent saves both from Andrew Butler. Torpoint however didn't Test the Sticker keeper and any balls that came his way he dealt with admirably. H/T.0-0.
The second half commenced with the rain now driving in and again both sets of players struggled all through the half. Jamie in the Sticker goal was the busiest but only because the wind was carrying the ball to him not from any shots from the Torpoint players. Sticker who were without top goalscorer Jack Bowyer(Holiday) and Joel Cockings(susp.) had Matt Lloyd and Frank McAvoy leading the attack but there were unable to find the net. The game looked as if it was going to be a stalemate so Sticker made a substitution bringing on reserve team player Jack Boardman for his Premier league debut and didn't look out of place. Sticker were gradually moving forward with some success and the best chance fell to Martin Duff as the ball was played to the edge of the box Martin was unable to keep the ball down to test the Torpoint keeper and the ball sailed over the bar! F/T. 0-0. Andy and Gary will be happy enough to have got a point but probably felt they could have won it had Jack Bowyer been on th pitch. Also great credit must go to the players to have to play in the atrocious conditions. Not that the pitch was bad just the howling wind and driving rain!
