Launceston AFC


Tavistock AFC Reserves

ECPL Saturday 28 October @ 2:30 pm Pennygillam

A hard fought point involving two improving sides and missing 7 players with two lads stepping up to first team action, the Tavistock Reserves were up against it the weekend. Launceston proved to be a good passing side who kept possession well and at times showed some excellent touches.
Fortunately, Tavistock had Blaine Loughran and Lewis Guest in commanding form organising the defence and keeping Launceston possession at a distance. Launceston were restricted to numerous long range efforts and despite their possession, it was Tavistock that had the better opportunities in the first half forcing the Launceston keeper into two fine saves Bayley Williams curling effort in particular troubled the keeper.
At half-time, some slight tinkering with the sides formation gave us a more compact look but it was Launceston that took the lead with a header from a corner kick.
That seemed to spur Tavistock into action and the lads showed character to maintain a good shape keep a good defensive shape and thwart the Launceston strikers. We grew more into the game forcing Launceston back and as confidence rose, opportunities appeared. Connor Spear and Scott Sanders became a real threat and with 20 minutes left, Connor found room in midfield strode forward a drove a superb equaliser into the top corner from 25 yards.From then on it was Tavistock that looked the more likely to score but a winner didn’t arrive. Overall, 1-1 was a fair result especially with the quality of Tavistock’s defending and the team remain unbeaten this season in the ECPL.
