Sticker Reserves 2 North Petherwin 2
Sticker playing with the wind were overhitting their long passes so much so that either the keeper gathered the ball or it it went fo a goal kick but because of this North Petherwin spent most of the first part of the game inside their own half. At last the Sticker midfield were using the flanks to good effect with less strength in their forward passes and managed to get in a couple of corners but without scoring, then at last after some excellent play on the left Lewis Clapham outpaced his marker and raced into the box and placed a superb ball past the keeper into the corner of the net.1-0. Shortly after Jack Boardman turned his marker and slammed in a perfect low drive which gave the keeper no chance. H/T. 2-0.
The second half was all North Petherwin with Sticker now struggling against the wind but still could have scored a couple more to wrap the game up but missed one chance from a yard out and then the keeper made a good save from a chipped effort. In the meantime the Petherwin pressure paid off with a superb goal of their own when the wide player on the right cut inside and sent in a beauty into the top corner, 2-1. Then near the end with the Sticker players tiring an unforunate own goal from captain Adam Cleaves made it F/T. 2-2. A deserved draw for the visitors from their second half effort. Roy and Martin will be glad to have got a point from a game that they so easily could of lost!!
