CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE WG PARR TROPHY: Dragonz dump Staverton out
1:00pm Monday 16th September 2013 in Sport
IT MAY have been their first ever venture in the Westernsport Trophies sponsored WG Parr Trophy, but first division Staverton went into their preliminary round clash at home to third division Sprotzcoach Dragonz United not just as favourites to win the tie but as possible Trophy winners.
However, the dreams of Aaron Latchem’s side turned into a nightmare as, despite having the lion’s share of the game, they suffered a 3-1 loss with all four goals coming in extra time.
Staverton should have taken the lead in the first half of the 90 minutes, but John Baker missed from the spot and as neither side could force an opening the game went to extra time where goals from Marc Bowsher and Ross Mather in the first period put Dragonz 2-0 up.
Levi Wood scored from the spot early in the second period of added time to give Staverton some hope.
But they were left counting the cost of Baker’s penalty miss when Dan Moore scored a third for the Dragonz to hand them a surprise place in the first round.
GRFC 0 Kings Arms (All Cannings) 3
AN INSPIRED goalkeeping display from Jacob Rogers and a solid showing from their back four helped first division Kings Arms (All Cannings) overcome a gutsy challenge from second division GRFC, who were only stopped from taking the lead by three great saves by keeper Rogers that kept it goalless before Rob Jenks put Kings Arms ahead.
A second from Jenks and a brilliant individual effort from Simon Drewitt that saw him before four players before firing home won the tie for Jim Wilson’s men.
North Star A 1 Corsham C Wildcats 5
THE all-first division clash between North Star A and Corsham CC Wildcats saw the latter claim a 5-1 win over their hosts at Beversbrook to maintain their recent good run of form over Liam Westland’s side.
Eighteen-year-old Adam Mitchell scored the opening two goals for the Wildcats his second being a delightful lob over the North Star keeper after he latched on to a long ball from keeper Joe King.
Mel King added a third and Joe Lye made it 4-0 before half time.
After the break, Tamlyn Goodrich tapped home the Wildcats fifth before Paul Green scored the Star’s consolation.
Prestige Bodyworks 2 Fortune Inn 1
THERE was no upset at Stanley Park where first division Prestige Bodyworks edged out their local second division rivals Fortune Inn, claiming their spot in the next round thanks to a 2-1 win.
Adam O’Keeffe’s goal for Prestige separated the teams at the break. Richie Bolter saw parity was restored for the Fortune only for Jamie Treweke to hit the Prestige winner when he rifled home a stunning free kick that made it 2-1.
Sutton Benger 6 Crossblades FC 1
THIRD division Crossblades were unable to conjure up a cup shock at second division Sutton Benger, who had their cup tie won at half time after they opened up a commanding 4-0 lead.
Rhys Merriman scored the first two goals for Benger, Tom Merriman added number three and Mark Merriman made it 4-0.
Luke Watson and Nathan Farrell netted in the second period to make up Benger’s half dozen.
Carl Jacobi was the Blades lone marksman.
Trowbridge Town Supporters Club 2 Southwick Wanderers 3
WHAT was billed as the most attractive tie of the round between third division Trowbridge Town Supporters Club and near-neighbours second division Southwick Wanderers didn’t disappoint.
Like the last time they met, when Southwick won 3-2, it was Matt Rusling’s side who took the honours thanks to an identical score line.
Southwick went one up when Jordan De Silva headed home a Bradley King-Taylor corner.
Stuart Farr got the supporters’ club back on level terms but the fell behind again when Ferris Lamrabet scored his first goal for the villagers midway through the half to make it 2-1.
The supporters’ club squared things up on 50 minutes, Dave Strickland making it two each.
With the place in the next round up for grabs it was Southwick who claimed it thanks to a second of the game from De Silva who bagged what was to be the winner 15 minutes from time.
