The Lambs completed their friendly fixture program with another convincing win over a very resilient hard working Bere Alston team.

The visitors took control from the start and settled into their pass and move football. In the 15th minute Josh Robins found Jack Crago, his fine cross into the six yard box was inches out of reach of the on rushing Ricki Shepherd. On twenty minutes the home team had their first real attack on goal and Gallway was denied by Jack Ord who pushed his effort over the bar.

A good move  with Cross and Krac  exchanging passes saw the later’s cross headed inches over the bar by Crago. Both Rosenquest and Hobbs then had efforts well saved by the home keeper. The Lambs nearly got caught by a counter attack, when Bray shot wide of the target.

The Lambs opened the scoring in the 40th minute when they were awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area, Shane Krac hit a powerful shot low into the corner of the net. The visitors continued to dominate possession but could not add to their advantage before the interval.

The Lambs scored their second goal early in the second half when another great from defence through midfield saw Crago raid down the left, his cross found Shepherd, his astute pass set up Shane Krac to fire home from eight yards.

On the hour another fine move resulted in a corner kick the ball was cleared but collected by Shepherd outside the penalty area, his fine pass found Ben Cross, his inch perfect cross was headed home by Dan Follett.

The Lambs continued to dominate the game and only some resolute defending and very good goal keeping by the home team keeper, denied  the Lambs from increasing their lead.

This was a comfortable win for the Lambs, but they will probably be slightly disappointed with their finishing, which they will want to improve before the opening game of the season this Saturday.
