Match Report

Grampound 5-1 Roche Res.

7th December 2019

Duchy League

Grampound raced into an early lead when Dylan Fox battled his way past defenders before drilling the ball past the visiting goalkeeper and Sam Blount extended the lead to 2-0 inside 8 minutes with a low left foot shoot from the edge of the penalty area.  Shane Weeks was put clear but his effort was hit too close to the keeper but he made no mistake twice on two similar occasions when dinking the ball past the advancing custodian to give Grampound a comfortable 4-0 lead at the break.

Grampound continued to dominate play in the second half but managed to miss a good number of opportunities with the goal beckoning.  George Bolt brought urgency to Grampound's play but it was Roche who pulled a goal back from the penalty spot after his smart tackle was surprisingly adjudged to have been a foul.  Grampound missed a penalty of their own before Dylan Fox intercepted a throw out by the visiting goalkeeper and went on to thump home for his second and Grampound's fifth goal.
