FOOTBALL: Taunton knocked out of Red Insure Cup by Tiverton
10:22pm Sunday 7th October 2012 in Sport
DESPITE leading twice during the game, Taunton bowed out of the Red Insure Cup at the first hurdle when they were beaten 3-2 at Tiverton Town yesterday.
And Jamie Short was also unlucky when he cracked a shot against the upright.
The home side equalised five minutes after the break when Owen Howe glanced in a cross from Andy Taylor but Taunton regained the lead on 59 minutes through Craig Herrod who ran onto a long ball from Dave Hambly to slot past Chris Wright.
Short was again denied, this time by Wright's fine save, before Tiverton luckily drew level via a bizarre goal on 75 minutes.
Goalkeeper Connor Sidley-Adams missing his kick on a Saunders back pass to allow Joe Bushin to run in and make sure the ball crossed the line.
As the match appeared to be destined for extra time, a Taylor free kick from the left was headed in by Kevin Hill to hand Tiverton a fortunate passage in to round two.
