The Roseland made a poor start to the game with Launceston having many
chances but not taking them. Harry Wilshaw in goal was tested with Launceston
taking shot after shot. But in the end the Roseland woke up and with having a few
chances, it was looking like a tight game. Roseland broke the deadlock from a
great corner by Ben Humphries, he lifted the ball over the goalkeeper and CJ
Boyce headed it in.
The second goal came when Ben Humphries was on a run down the left wing and seeing a chance to crossed it along the floor, the ball traveled through the defence
and ran to CJ Boyce who planted the ball in the back of the net, 2-0 Roseland.
Roseland started the second half the same, but began to tire. Launceston kept trying
to put the ball through the Roseland defence but in the end George Harrison had
too much to do and Launceston created a chance to go 1 on 1 with Harry. Unluckily for Harry the striker put it past him. It stayed 2-1 to the Roseland
until the last 10 minutes of the game.
Ben Humphries and Cadan Brown's efforts
were too much for them and had to be substituted for fresher legs. A Launceston through
ball was too long and went through to Harry, however with the state of the
pitch the ball bounced up and through Harry's hands and travelled towards the
goal. Harry tried to recover and clawed the ball out of the net, but the
referee had already given the goal. Launceston 2 - 2 Roseland.
remaining, Roseland kept attacking and with a final mazy run from CJ Boyce, he
created a chance across the goal. Joe Hitchings was in the right place at the
right time for an easy tap-in to confirm a Roseland win. Final Score Launceston
