Chipping Sodbury Town 9 Bishop's Cleeve Reserves 3

CHIPPING Sodbury Town ran riot against Bishops Cleeve Reserves.

The visitors fielded a very poor side and had no substitutes.

They did however create the first attempt on goal after eight minutes, a shot from Gareth Davies that was well saved by keeper Cameron Currin.

Sodbury opened the scoring on 12 minutes with a 20-yard volley from Justin Cattle that gave Dan Greenhouse no chance.

At this point Cleeve lost James Pickup to injury and were down to ten men.

The second goal on 16 minutes was a close range shot from James Mackie that Greenhouse got his hands to but could not prevent crossing the line.

A Cleeve defensive blunder on 25 minutes allowed James Mackie a free shot on goal for the third.

Louis Spedding's shot into the roof of the net from just inside the box on 29 minutes made it 4-0.

Cattle netted his second from a cross in from the left on 32 minutes.

Dan Bendall almost made it five but for a great save from Greenhouse.

Cattle completed his hat-trick in the 41st minute with a superb low drive that gave the keeper no chance.

Just before the break, Cleeve pulled a goal back after Currin picked up a back-pass 14 yards out and Neil Goodwin’s free kick took a deflection on its way into the net.

Five minutes into the second half Mackie headed home to complete his hat-trick.

Cleeve's Nick Hill was unlucky when his 40-yard free kick struck the crossbar.

The visitors got a second on 64 minutes when Nick Hill broke clear and chipped the ball into the net.

Cleeve went down to nine men when Chris Parsons went of injured.

Four minutes later Bendall broke down the right to smash home number nine.

Cleeve's woes continued as the game was held up for 15 minutes with just six minutes left when Davies had to be taken to hospital with a badly damaged arm.
