THE game began with early dominance from North Somerset, but the team failed to capitalise on the early chances to score.

Fry’s on the other hand counter attacked and scored an early goal against the run of play. An abundance of short corners for North Somerset was still to no avail, but after a few failed attempts Charlie Hart managed to smash a North Somerset equaliser.

A changed formation in attack allowed the play to go wider which allowed Fry’s the upper hand and score their second goal just before the break.

After a heated first period, the second half was quieter and play became a lot simpler and mostly stayed in the middle going from one end of the pitch to the other.

Fry’s began to time waste with their one goal lead, but with just minutes remaining Lewi-Francuz scored a controversial equaliser to keep North Somerset 2s in the promotion hunt.
