WCP League Cup February 21, 2018 @ 7:30 pm Langsford Park

A good sized crowd witnessed a terrific League Cup tie against Bodmin Town. The game flowed from end to end throughout the ninety minutes.
The Lambs came close to opening the scoring in the third minute when  a raid down the left saw Josh Robins fire a great cross into the penalty area, Josh Grant’s overhead kick went inches over the cross bar.
Two minutes later the Lambs did have the ball in the net but the effort was ruled out as Josh Grant was adjudged to have fouled a defender before slotting the ball home.
Back came Bodmin three minutes later a free kick by Reed was tipped over the bar by Josh Oak.
In the 14th minute Bodmin keeper May made a terrific save turning a fierce shot from Jack Crago  away for a corner kick. Josh Oak was then called on to make a smart save to deny Brokenshire from opening the scoring.
The Lambs took the lead in the 19th minute when another terrific passing move from the back through midfield to find Josh Grant who fired home a terrific shot from eighteen yards, giving May in the Bodmin goal no chance of saving.
Back came Bodmin with Reed testing the home defence with another fine effort Tiegan Rosequest then had a powerful shot deflected away for a corner kick Bodminwere then awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area, but May’s fine effort was turned over the bar by Josh Oak, for a corner kick, which was cleared.
Bodmin were awarded another free kick twenty five yards out, Evans shot was blocked, the ball fell to Reed but he dragged his shot well wide of the target.
Just before the interval the Lambs had a penalty appeal turned down as Josh Grant appeared to be pushed over in the penalty area, as he was about to shoot. The home team closed out the half with a single goal lead.
The home started the second half at a brisk pace and two minute in Tallinn Burns saw his fine effort go inches over the bar.
The Lambs missed a great opportunity to double their lead in the 52nd minute when a terrific cross from the left flashed across the six yard box inches out of the reach of the on rushing Grant and Rosenquest .  The Lambs were now on top and created more scoring opportunities but Burns, Rosenquest and Grant fired inches wide. It was during this period that the Lambs should have made the game safe, but having survived this period Bodmin began to get back in the game, as Josh Oak was forced to make a good save to deny Brokenshire.
The Lambs then had another penalty appeal turned down mid way through the half, as keeper May cluttered into Rosenquest which appeared to be just inside the box, but the referee gave the offence just outside the area. The free kick was cleared.
The home team were still very dangerous on the counter attack and Warren Daw went close with his fine effort. Bodmin continued to press forward with Slateford and Colwell both having efforts well saved by Josh Oak in the home goal.
The Lambs defence held firm to see the game out to make it through to the quarter final.
This was a terrific game of football with both teams playing some delightful football, it was a great advert for S W Peninsula Football. The Lambs just edged the contest over the ninety minutes and deserved to go through.
Everyone can be pleased with their performance as the whole team must take credit for the result, but the man of the match goes to captain Lewis Daw who kept danger man Adam Carter in check throughout the game.
