Pocklington Town 3rds 3 - 2 Holme Rovers 2nds

08 Feb 2014

YARA sponsored Pocklingtons Third team were also in cup action last weekend with a home against Holme Rovers Reserves in a game postponed from the previous weekend. Town made a good start and were 1-0 up after 20 minutes with a pin point strike from John Parsons providing the opener. Holme refused to panic though and made the most of playing with the breeze behind them to ensure that it was 1-1 at the break.
 
Holme started the second half better than Pock and deservedly took the lead on the hour but Jake Winspear was on hand to draw the game level for Town with a clinical finish on 70 minutes. With the game as close as the scoreline suggests and extra time looming, a Rovers defender made a clumsy challenge on Alex Fletcher in the area and "Fletch" picked himself up to coolly slot home the resulting penalty. A late flurry from Holme was met by solid defending from Alex Downey, Byron Draycott, Josh Fletcher and Sam Morrell as Pock hung in to qualify for the 1/4 finals of the Qualifying cup but it's back to league action this weekend with a trip to take on Bishopthorpe United in Reserve B. Players meet at the club at 12.15 please.
