MATCH REPORT: STREET VS WINCANTON TOWN

Street's clinical finishing ensured a safe passage through to the next round of the Les Phillips Cup as they defeated Wincanton Town by four goals to one at a very wet and blustery Tannery Ground.

 

After a cagey opening 25 minutes Steve Murray broke the deadlock after ghosting past two defenders before slamming a fine effort in at the near post. Wincanton responded immediately and equalised when Street were unable to clear a ball that came into the box and Lewis Voizey nipped in ahead of the Street keeper to make it 1-1.

 

Street upped the tempo in the second half and on the hour mark scored two great goals in quick succession. Firstly Dale Hunt made space in the box and hammered a ferocious effort across the keeper into the far corner, then left back Lewis Tasker score from the edge of the area when his shot found the bottom corner. At the other end the Street keeper pulled off two magnificent  saves to keep Street's two goal advantage. On 77 minutes Street wrapped up the win when Craig Herrod collected a cross from Josh Wadham on the left hand side of the box and found the top corner with a wonderful curling effort.

 

This meant that it was the end of the road for Wincanton as far as the Les Phillips Cup was concerned so they turn back to the league as they travel to Chippenham Park on Tuesday night.
