Cemaes Bay v Holyhead Hotspur Reserves LUCAS OIL CUP 11 Nov 2018 1330KO


Holyhead Hotspur Reserves visited Cemaes Bay in the Lucas Oil Cup on another wet Saturday afternoon. The final game before Remembrance Sunday both teams observed a minutes silence before the game.
The game started hectic with both teams zipping the ball around on the wet surface. Cemaes threatened early on and took the lead on 14 mins with their striker latching onto a neat through ball. 1-0.
Cemaes were quick to double their lead shortly after a lapse in concentration from the visitors saw a two on one situation in which Cemaes converted. 2-0
Cemaes looked to have wrapped the game up on 28 mins with another well worked goal. An injury to CB Tom Scott on 30 mins saw the introduction of Sion Rowlands and a shuffle in the lineup was needed.
Hotspur managed to grab a goal back before half time through David Williams.

HT 3-1

After some honest words at halftime, Holyhead came out the blocks like a train quickly putting the hosts under pressure immediately from kick off. 3 minutes after the break 16 year old Casey Gregg coolly converted a shot from inside the box. 3-2 Game On!!
Hotspur had the bit between their teeth and CM Chris Corrie was the driving force, countless tackles and shots really set the tone for the rest of the team. And they followed suit. Sub Sion Rowlands capped off a brilliant display with the equaliser on 56 minutes. 3-3
Hotspur weren't done and 9 minutes later the turnaround was completed. Young winger Luke Jones cross come shot snuck under the Cemaes keeper and the celebrations duly followed. 3-4
An absolute superb turnaround by the lads. With the average age of the squad at 19.2 years they have shown brilliant desire and will to get the result.

FT 3-4
