Sporting Weston 6

Kenn Valley 4

Kenn Valley travelled to Sporting Weston with both teams currently lying in mid table and within three points of each other.

Sporting started the game well and the pressure told when they went 1-0 up, soon followed by a second, giving keeper Stu Wilson no chance.

Valley kept on pushing and a good free kick from Ben Stanley gave a great chance to Andy Vowles from six yards out, but he headed just over the bar. Sporting went 3-0 up when Wilson was unable to hold a corner, resulting in an easy header.

Valley managed to get a goal back on the 35th minute when Stanley was upended in the penalty box. He got up and tucked the ball away from 12 yards just under the keeper’s body.

Just before the break, KVFC had a goal disallowed for offside and soon after a free kick was saved by Wilson, but a Sporting defender followed up to make it 4-1.

The second half started with a good tempo with Valley trying to get back in the game, but Sporting extended their lead on the hour from a free kick.

Sporting were not finished and 15 minutes later, a well-timed through ball was again well finished by the Sporting striker.

Valley managed to get themselves another goal when a head on from Ricky Smith fell kindly to Stanley, who tucked it though the keeper’s legs. This seemed to spur Valley on and five minutes later, Ryan Mogg scored from eight yards.

There was to be one more chance on the 89th minute with a from Dan Scribbins. A fantastic cut back fell perfectly to Stanley, who tucked the ball into the top corner making it 6-4.

A-Y-S Cleaning Service man of the match was Ben Stanley, with special mentions to Ryan Mogg and Zach Michell.
