South East 3
Bridgwater Mens 5th 0, Minehead 3rds 7
THE game started as it was destined to go on as Minehead pushed to score an early goal.
But some poor finishing coupled with a solid defence of John Schweiso, Steve Peters, Jack Syvret and James Kettlewell somehow held out for ten minutes as Bridgwater couldn’t get the ball out of their half.
When they did press forward George Pupplett, Joe Syvret, Sam Beasley, Will Baldwin and Liam Durkin looked like they could cause some damage, but a lack of composure cost them.
Man of the match was Will Baldwin with Joe Syvret in a close second.
