Poor second-half showing sends Middlezoy to defeat
2:00pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
Middlezoy Rovers 2 -3 Brislington Reserves
MIDDLEZOY lost at home for the third consecutive league game after a disappointing second half performance against Brislington Reserves.
Middlezoy were hit by a goal against the run of play on 12 minutes after dominating the early exchanges with some excellent passing football.
Andy Smith levelled things up on 18 minutes with a side-footed finish after good work from strike partner Craig Wright.
But Brislington retook the lead, again against the run of play on 31 minutes and went in ahead at the break.
The second half was one that the home side will quickly want to forget after failing to get out of the blocks. Brislington made it 3-1 on the hour mark and were denied a fourth by the post on 81 minutes.
Dan Luce's last minute effort from the edge of the box made the score line more respectable, the game finishing 3-2.
Team: Baker, Brown, Peppin, Turner, Lintell (Lewis), Hall, Bone, Luce, Whaites (Atyeo), Wright, Smith.
Middlezoy Star Man - Dan Luce.
Next week home in the league v Banwell.
