WELLINGTON side Moortown came out on top in a pulsating Mike Stewart Cup in Taunton last Sunday.
Both teams came out of the traps quickly producing a game that was end to end action. Both goalkeepers were tested early with both producing fine saves. However, the Hamilton ‘keeper could have received a red card for a challenge on Rohan Poulsom after 20 minutes but the referee decided on a yellow card.
Hamilton struck first after 30 minutes, taking the lead following a goalmouth scramble. Their lead, however, lasted only a minute when following a similar scramble in the Hamilton penalty area Alex Davey slammed the ball home. Half time arrived with the score at 1-1.
The second half started much the same as the first with the action flowing from end to end. After 65 minutes Hamilton again took the lead with a fine finish from 15 yards. Moortown started to force the pressure and finally equalised with a fine finish from Moortown’s Man of the Match James Conway.
The momentum was now with Moortown and following some good work from Jake Nichol and Rohan Poulsom, the following cross was slammed home by James Conway after 84 minutes. Moortown then saw the game out comfortably earning an outstanding victory.
This weekend Moortown are home to Williton in the same competition (10.45 p.m.).
