Elmore AFC v Torridgeside AFC

After losing to our visitors in the League recently, we knew that this would be a tough challenge if again we did not head the lesson we learnt from our first meeting.
The game started at a good tempo, with us controlling opening encounters well, and making early inroads into the Torridgeside defence.
On 3 minutes this paid off with an early goal from Jesse Howe, as he receives the ball on the edge of the box, and turns well inside the box and lifts the ball over the keeper into the far corner to make it 1-0.
Some early control in the game now paid off, and we continued to press and cause problems for our visitors as we searched for a second to help put more distance between us.
Torridgeside never made it easy for us throughout the half, and worked hard to disrupt any attack, whilst trying to build on there own, but without a real cutting edge to cause too many problems for our defence.
The game rolled towards half time, and on 40 minutes Ashton Hewitt picked up the ball 10 yards outside the visitors box and drove with pace and power into their penalty area, where a poor challenge saw Ashton upended and giving the referee no option but to award a penalty to us.
Jesse Howe stepped up and placed the ball into the corner of the goal, and the keeper made his best efforts to save it by getting fingertips on the shot, but couldn’t keep the ball out. 2-0 to us just before half time, and thats how it finished taking us into the break.
The 2nd half started with a similar tempo, and within 2 minutes of the restart a ball forward to Jesse Howe was controlled and held well before being released into Jordan Bastin’s path, who side stepped the defender and fired home into the corner past a helpless keeper making it 3-0 to elmore.
Now looking slightly dejected but not giving up on a goal of their own, Torridgeside continued to press forward where possible, which left them exposed at the back. Another ball forward to Jesse Howe is again held up well, and as before, releasing a well timed pass through to Jordan Bastin again to race onto, this time he went across the box cutting the ball back across the keeper giving him no chance to make a save, and taking the score to 4-0 on 54 minutes.
A relatively comfortable and controlled performance now saw us control most of the rest of the game.
Chances came and went, but we couldn’t quite find the cutting edge to add to our scoreline, and with final whistle eventually coming, we take our place in the 3rd round of the competition, and a huge fixture against high flying Saltash from the primeur division.
The only slight advantage being a home draw, this will be massive game for the team and the club, and a huge test for the team to see how they will fair against higher league opponents.
