DAVENTRY TOWN 0 HALESOWEN TOWN 4

On paper, the result looks a comfortable win for the Yeltz, however, with the scores level on 70 minutes this very much wasn’t the case, and the final score didn’t reflect the performance put into the game by the Daventry players.

In fact, Town should have gone in at the break a goal ahead. A crazy 10 seconds of play saw at least 3 attempts on goal which were hit directly at the goalkeeper. We think…that shots from Print, Childs, and King were hit towards goal. One of those opportunities that a mishit or scuffed shot would have gone in. The other noteworthy effort being a free kick from Adam Creaney pushed wide by the keeper.

In the second half, and with the wind, Halesowen looked stronger, but as with the game up there a few weeks ago Daventry competed and the game was level.

This changed on 70 minutes when a cross from impressive substitute Simeon Coburne landed at the back post for league top scorer Montel Gibson to beat James Martin from close range.

1 goal became 3 in the space of 2 minutes on the 81st and 82nd minutes when Cobourne scored two quick goals in succession to kill the game. Both times striking from close distance against James Martin.

The cherry on the icing came a minute before time when Joshua Hawker sidefooted the ball into the net, a couple of minutes after a great save from James Martin.
