Sticker 1 Callington 1
Sticker playing their tenth game of the season so far were up against Callington who also have not been fairing too well and it was easy to see why there was no quality to their play but they still managed to go in front when another ball was knocked over the top of the Sticker defence and this time they did not deal with it which allowed the Cally striker to fire them into the lead. 0-1. Sticker were at least trying to play passing football and some of their approach play was very good but as soon as the ball got anywhere near the centre of penalty area they lost it. There best play was down the right wing with Jack Hooper, Jack Boardman and Jack Walker were all involved and forced a few corners and there best change fell to player/manager Andrew Avery but his first time strike hit Ben Rosevear unfortunately when it looked like it was on its way into the net. H/T.0-1.
Second half and Sticker started on the front foot and pushed Cally into their own half for long periods and whilst the had most of the play and did create a few chances on goal and Jack Hooper was brought down in the penalty area where it looked a stone wall penalty but referee Derek Fox disagreed. Consequently Jack eventually had to be subbed as he suffered an injury in the tackle.It wasn't until the 75th minute and from a corner that Sticker finally got a deserved equaliser Bobby Hopkinson swung in a near post cross low down and Andrew Avery steaming in stooped low to power in a header. 1-1. Fifteen minutes to find the winner and how they tried and at the same time protect the draw and in the end they were unable to score again so a draw it was. F/T.1-1. The two Andrews will pleased to have rescued a point but probably disappointed not to have gained all three points after the second half display. Next game against Wadebridge in the first round of the WCP cup. Friday 21st September 2018 K.O. 7.30pm Away.
