 Two very late goals secured a point for the Ashes.For the first 20 minutes it looked like if Saltash could score 1 goal the floodgates would open up as they had most of the play but the Sticker defence held firm.

 With 21 minutes gone Ashes keeper Ryan Rickard made a rash challenge in the area and Sticker were awarded a penalty.The spot kick was saved but Ben Rosevear was quickest to respond to put the home side 1-0 up.Sticker now looked comfortable until Frank McAvoy was sent-off on 38 minutes.From then on until half-time Sticker had to defend deep and this they did well.

 It was all Ashes second half but they could not break down the stubborn Sticker defence.With less than 15 minutes to go Sticker had a free-kick wide on the left which was taken by Bobby Hopkinson.He shot straight at goal and keeper Rickard let the ball slip through his hands and into the net to make it 2-0.

 In the last 5 minutes the Ashes got a lifeline when Ryan Richards scored and then in time added on Sam Hughes forced the ball home to give the Ashes a share of the points.A Special mention to the young Sticker keeper Ethen Elwell who had a superb game under a lot of pressure.
