Somerset County League - Division 1
MIDDLEZOY ROVERS 3 BANWELL 2
A SECOND-Half penalty from Sam Peppin handed Middlezoy a narrow victory over Banwell, as they came from 2-1 down to win 3-2.
Darren Cann and Craig Wright netted first half goals for Zoy, before Peppin's late strike gave them all three points.
Both sides started well in this one with some excellent passing football and it was the away side took the lead on 15 minutes - a turn of pace from Cameron Jones resulted in him picking out an unmarked William Rudd for a tap in.
Middlezoy continued to knock the ball around and drew level on 22 minutes when a Craig Wright corner was powered home by Darren Cann.
Banwell retook the lead on 25 when the impressive Jones scored with a neat finish.
Five minutes before the break Middlezoy were level again when a good run and cross from Chris Singleton found Craig Wright who made no mistake from 16 yards.
The second half was shaded by Middlezoy who were awarded a penalty on 57 minutes. Paul Atyeo was taken out by the Banwell goalkeeper and Sam Peppin found the net from the resulting spot kick to ensure Middlezoy move up to 6th in the table.
Next week Middlezoy face a tough away trip to high-flying Westfield on Saturday.
