Launceston Cup Semi Final Sunday 14th April

Bude Town Res 1-1 Holsworthy Res  ( Attendance over 160)

James Wheeler                  Rob Pearce

Holsworthy Res won 4-2 on penalties

A good-sized crowd gathered for this first Semi Final of the Launceston K.O Cup with the weather finally improving the game went ahead and it was probably the first game of football played at Pennygillam for over three weeks, due to the excessive rainfall and the pitch was in very good condition.

Holsworthy started the brighter and enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges, but it was Bude who  took the lead on 10 mins when Steve Box floated a free kick into the Holsworthy penalty area which was not  headed fully clear and James Wheeler was on hand to hook the ball high into the side netting.

The first half continued evenly, and it was on 38 minutes that Holsworthy scored their equaliser, a corner from the left eluded Jensen Goatcher in the Bude goal and fell nicely for  Rob Pearce to volley back into an empty net.

In the second half Bude looked the better side but failed to make the most of their chances, Jago Tweitman sent over a very inviting cross in the 88th minutes but Rowan Tape failed to make a good connection and  wasted the chance. Harrison Swatton also cut in well from the right wing but instead of shooting he squared the ball and in the goal mouth scramble that ensued Holsworthy cleared and the match ended in a draw.


The game went to penalties Aidan Davis scoring the first for Holsworthy and Bude’s Jago Tweitman blasted over the bar

Holsworthy 1-0 Bude Town

Scott Bingham scored and Steve Box for Bude also scored with a fine penalty into the corner

Holsworthy 2-1 Bude Town

Rob Pearce of Holsworthy had his penalty saved by Goatcher and Swatton made it 2-2

Holsworthy 3-2 Bude

Jack Walker then scored the winning penalty for Holsworthy to make 4-2  

Referee: Tony Rogers
