FOOTBALL: Somerset League Division 2W - Worle 1, Staplegrove 3
10:37am Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
STAPLEGROVE started their first season in the Somerset County League on Saturday with a 3-1 victory over Worle.
Grove were forced to come from behind after Worle took the lead from the penalty spot in the 13th minute. But they drew level twelve minutes later when Tom Maddock flicked the ball onto his striking partner Alex Izzard who made no mistake in beating the keeper.
Ten minutes before the break Maddock had his second assist when he set up skipper Carl Edwards to slot home from close range to put Grove into the lead. On the stroke of half-time, Staplegrove extended their lead with a fine counter-attacking goal. A Worle free-kick was intercepted by Sam Mockridge, whose long ball found Alex Izzard. The striker cut in neatly from the left before burying his shot in the far corner of the net. The second half was a far quieter affair, with neither side creating anything of note. Staplegrove held on to register their first three points of the season.
