What looks like an easy win was really anything but & really does Chard a disservice.
In the first 15 minutes they pinned Tiverton in their own half & but for some determined defending & some good saves from Will in goal they could of been first to score. The tide turned on the 15th minute when Tiverton opened the scoring. Despite managing to score 3 more goals before the halftime whistle they were never able to fully close down the Chard attack who continued to cause the Tiverton defence problems throughout the half.
The second half started with Tiverton quickly netting their 5th goal. But the game then settled into a period of the teams exchanging attacks with Chard showing a determination to score & forcing a number of short corners which fortunately for Tiverton were unable to convert. But in the future final few minutes Tiverton were able to add another 2 goals to bring the final score to 7.
Well done to a fiercely competitive Chard team who made Tiverton work hard to get the win.
It was also good to see Brad Weeks back to grab a goal, Richard back on the pitch & Nick Is Eveleigh gabbing a brace of goals. The other scorers were Greg Causer 3 & of course Martin Rees-Davies gabbing the other.
Next up East Devon A when we hopefully keep the pressure on & continue to enjoy our hockey.
