Sticker Reserves 4 Boscastle 3
Sticker Reserves welcomed Boscastle on this cold and extremely windy November Saturday and as usual were pushing forward from the off using Jack Turner wide on the left as their main striker because of his speed to break through the Boscastle defence and on the third time that he was able to outrun them he unselfishly laid on a square pass for Eddie Gearge to slot home and score.1-0. Jack had another opportunity but just dragged his shot wide. there were a few other goalmouth melees but Sticker unable to press home their advantage. Then as so often happens just before half time Boscastle launched an attack and a cross was curled in and touched a couple of heads one striker and one defender and the ball beat keeper Shaun Hicks and ended up in the goal. H/T. 1-1.
The second half started and that equalising goal certainly livened up Boscastle as they came out with guns blazing and constantly put Sticker on the back foot leaving Sticker having to rely on Jack Turner to try and beat the defence again. He did this on a couple of occasions and this time on the right sent in a fierce shot which a defender turned into his own net. 2-1. Boscastle were still pumping balls forward and with the wind holding the ball up was causing problems for the Sticker defenders Jack Turner once again showed terrific pace and sent in another cross and found Matt Searle who had just come on who struck the ball first time which the keeper did save but couldn't stop the ball going into the net. 3-1. Boscastle however wouldn't lie down and came storming back and grabbed another goal 3-2. Sticker were beginning to struggle even more as the wind got stronger so on came Matt Boynton to try and steady the ship and it worked and Matt got forward down the left and send in a beauty of a cross and once agian found the foot of Matt Searle who steered the ball past the keeper. 4-2. Boscastle however were still not done for and scored their third goal in extra time but Sticker held on and saw the game out. F/T.4-3.
