North Somerset hit five goals past Bristol UWE to record a comfortable victory.

Bristol UWE A 1

North Somerset Men 5

Following on from last week’s strong home performance, North Somerset travelled to Bristol UWE A with confidence and came away with a 5-1 victory.

The game itself was competitive and intense, but North Somerset scored the opening goal from a set piece early in the first-half which settled their nerves as UWE A had started the game strongly.

At the end of the half, North Somerset found themselves 3-1 up and conceded a penalty flick, which was saved by keeper Steve Proctor, who was shortly after shown a green card (two minute suspension).

Due to tackle which caused penalty flick, Brad Krone had already seen the same suspension and North Somerset found themselves down to nine men and without a keeper.

UWE pressed for a goal, but a lightning counter attack from a goal-line save, saw a sensational finish by Mike Hooper, as North Somerset extended their lead.

Another goal followed and North Somerset finished 5-1 up and winners for the second game on the trot and looking forward to a hard week of outdoor and indoor training before their clash against struggling local rivals Somerset Gryphons on Saturday (Gordano School, 4pm).
