Sticker 1 Torpoint 1
Sticker at last got a point after three games and thoroughly deserved it. The game started at a lively pace with Torpoint controlling it playing good football but without creating any chances or shots on goal. Sticker finally got into the game in the last twenty minutes of the first half with some gutsy football and putting the Torpoint defence under some pressure. But no goals in the first half. H/T. 0-0.
The second half started with Sticker kicking down the slope and a raking pass from Bobby Hopkinson who had come on in place of the injured Rory Jarvis sent the diminutive Jack Hooper sprinting down the left side and as he flew past the last defender and into the box he was upended by a desperate tackle. The referee had no hesitation in awarding Sticker a penalty. Up stepped Frank McAvoy who slammed it into the net to give Sticker a deserved lead. 1-0. Torpoint came alive and put Sticker under tremendous but the defence was magnificent including keeper Jamie Blatchford. With Bobby Hopkinson with long searching passes to the two front players Sticker could have taken the lead with Tyler Cheshire beating his man and shooting just wide and then Tyler once again this time being provider when he sped past the defence and cut the ball back for Jack Hooper who brought a good save from the keeper. Torpoint finally scored an equaliser when an excellent move and great running gave their striker the chance to shoot and score in off the far post giving Jamie no chance.1-1. Sticker still defending briliantly managed to see the game out for a well deserved point. F/T. 1-1. Andy and Gary will no doubt be pleased to at least get a point but probably feel that this was a game that should have been won. They will obviously be disappointed in losing Adam Solomon so early in the season to Wadebridge who had started so well.
