Roche vBere Alston

Recommended Posts

;) Roche got back to winning ways with a narrow 2-1 defeat of Bere Alston, on a very warm sunny afternoon both teams played a decent standard of football with the home side just pipping the visitors.Roche started the better and were passing the ball around playing football,although Bere had a few strikes on goal, Jon Collins(keeper) was rarely tested and it took a good move by new striking partnership of Malcolm Thomas and Paul Omahoney to break the deadlock midway in the first half, when a sublime pass from the veteran Thomas allowed Omahoney to calmly slot the ball pass the Bere keeps,this seemed to spur the home side on, and 5 minutes from the end of the 1st half Roche were awarded a free kick which Omahoneys left foot dispatched clinically into the net nearly taking the goalposts down with it.

The second half started the same as the 1st, both sides competing at the highest level but Bere were slightly gaining control, they were pushing the home side back into their own half, and stout defending was called upon, the new back 4 of Chris Arnold, Ross Burnett,Karl Rance and Steve Martins held their positions brilliantly, and when Beres attack broke down Roche had many chances to increase their lead through a counter attack but a few saves from the away keeps kept the score at 2-0, Roche hit the bar and Beres goalie produced the save of the day to deny Roches third, but with time running out the visitors did grab a consolation goal by way of a og.

Good to see Steve Masters and Ryan Lean commanding down the flanks,also the return of captain Richard "Tevez" Higgins alongside Craig Tamblyn in the middle and many thanks to Tristan Smith who done a decent job when called upon.A 100% improvement of last weeks embarassing defeat to Newmoor. Home next week to Bodmin Saints, 2-30pm ko.
