Sticker 2 Newquay 1
Sticker entertained Newquay in their second Premier League game this time at home and in front of a fairly big crowd and created more goalworthy chances in the first half! In fact Newquay didn't have one shot on goal but nonetheless were very competitive. H/T. 0-0.
The second half started and Newquay kicking with the wind started off on the front foot to put the Sticker defence under pressure and within five minutes scored .After a defensive error the ball fell kindly to Tornado Bello who lashed the ball into the net. 0-1. Sticker stuck to their task and were looking the better team without getting much luck. Joel Cockings managed to nick the ball on the left of the penalty area and his perfect shot thundered off the crossbar and was cleared. Joel had had the best effort in the first half when he latched onto a long ball from Andy Avery and his shot flashed wide of the far post. Sticker finally got their reward that the teams hard work deserved when Joel and Matt Lloyd made a nuisance of themselves on the edge of the box and Matt finally lashed the ball into the net for a well deserved equaliser. 1-1. Newquay started to put pressure on the Sticker defence and with Tornado Bell now switching to the left wing where he likes to cut inside to unleash his power each time he was thwarted by the resolute Sticker backline. Sticker still looking like they could snacth the winner eventually found a way through with two minutes on the clock when they were awarded a free kick wide out on the left and with Newquay forming a four man wall were unable to stop Frank McAvoy from unleashing a tremendous shot into the net leaving the keeper stranded. The players and home crowd were delirous and shortly after the excellent Referee Derek Fox blew the final whistle. An excellent and well deserved result for the Newbies in the SWPL Premier League..
