Following Tuesday night's 3-1 defeat away to Westbury, Wincanton returned to Moor Lane as they hosted Roman Glass St George on a wet and windy afternoon.
The first 20 minutes saw both sides have a handful of dangerous attacks, closest coming from Wincanton's Player/Manager Andy Mitchell as his shot from 18 yards thundered off the crossbar. Roman Glass also had a shot go just wide of the right post. It was Roman Glass who took the lead on 24 minutes as they put a dangerous ball into the box which was headed straight up and back down to the feet of the Roman Glass striker who just simply tapped it in from 2 yards out to give them the lead. Roman Glass then looked like bagging another but a strong run from Wincanton winger Matt Morley caught the Romans defence off guard as his shot managed to squeeze into the bottom corner to put the game level again on 32 minutes. It was Roman Glass who responded quickly as Wincanton keeper Dan Cabell had to pull of a superb save to prevent being chipped from 20 yards. Then it was the Roman Glass keeper Phillip Mills who pulled a very good save from Matt Peters to keep the game level at half time.
The second half was well contested for the first 15 minutes with both teams getting into good positions but not being able to find the net. It was Roman Glass who did find the net on the hour mark when a free kick from Lewis Wentland was headed in well by brother Sam Wentland to give Roman Glass the lead again. Wincanton then had a corner that was drilled low into the 6 yard box but no one could get the vital touch to put it into the net. Then Roman Glass had to work hard as Wincanton kept pushing for an equaliser. The frustration was growing as Wincanton were struggling to get shots away as the Roman defence were closing down well. On 86 minutes Roman Glass found breathing space as the ball was played to Lewis Wentland who struck it to the left of Dan Cabell in goal to make it 3-1 to Roman Glass. This was how it ended as the full time whistle went to bring an end to the game.
