Steeple Ashton 1-2 Old Road
Ashton Loss A Hard One To Swallows
The two sides have been playing well of late so it was really no surprise that the defences remained tight for much of the duration of the 90 minutes. Midway through the first half the deadlock was broken when Oscar Keen found the back of the net, a lovely chip over the goalkeeper for 1-0 to Steeple Ashton.
It was not too long before Old Road were back on level terms when Frankie Vaz restored parity for the away team.
And as they headed towards the break it was Road who then took the lead when Zak Swallows found himself in space to notch Road’s second of the match, making it 2-1 at halftime.
Not for the want of trying, neither team could breach the others defence in the second half and a although there were few saves by both Jack Chapman(Steeple Ashton) and Adam House(Old Road) between the sticks, the day arguably belonged to the defenders in a close match up.
