FOOTBALL: Wellington reserves denied away win
8:45pm Sunday 24th February 2013 in Sport
WELLINGTON Reserves became only the fourth side to visit Cullompton Rangers reserves in Division One of the Devon and Exeter League this season due to the weather and should have come away with all three points.
But they failed to make the most of the chances that came their way and they conceded a late goal to leave the final score 1-1.
Wellington were unsure how the pitch would play given the effect that the weather was bound to have had on it and there was a fair amount of uneven bounce and this gave Wellington's back four and Chris Cherry in goal a bit to think of all game.
Luke Bryant was excellent down the right wing from full back and he sent in a number of quality balls for the forwards to feed off.
Nick Bull did a good job in midfield as Sam Bryant was unable to play. Once again young Jack Bryant was never afraid to shoot when the chance came to be able to do so and Oli Nott was also in good fettle, but despite the Tangerines' dominance it was 0-0 at the break.
Cullompton came back into the game in the second half, but when Jack Bryant broke the deadlock with a sweetly struck vollied finish most people thought that Wellington were on their way to three points, but it was not to be as a free kick was bundled home and the points shared.
A home game with Bow AAC on Saturday will be testing for sure as they are third and have a lot of games to play still, but a Wellington win will take them to within a point of this side.
