TOOLSTATION LEAGUE FIRST DIVISION: Calne Town 3 Roman Glass St George 0
10:12am Monday 1st October 2012 in Sport
Calne Town notched up their second straight victory last weekend with a comfortable win over Roman Glass St George.
Both teams started off cautiously but it was the hosts that had the better of the play, keeping the visitors pegged back for long periods of time.
26 minutes in, Calne's pressure paid off when a Kris Beasley cross from the left was missed by Tyler Sheppard but Levi Cox behind him along with a defender, brought the ball to earth.
As it dropped between the defender and the advancing goalkeeper, Cox stuck out a foot and poked home to give Calne the lead.
The Lilywhites continued with the pressure as attempts on their goal were few and far between.
Just before the break, following one of the rare attempts on the Calne goal, Calne keeper Steve Allison launched the ball over the top for Tyler Sheppard to run onto.
Sheppard took a couple of touches, looked up, and lobbed keeper Shane Mason from 18 yards to make it 2-0.
After the break, the game continued in much the same fashion until the 69th minute when an advancing Dan Lardner was upended by Roman Glass’s Dan Cole some 25 yards out.
Cox stepped up and fired in the free-kick for his second of the afternoon and Calne’s third.
Jeff Roberts and Drew Youngsam's side should have made it four in the dying minutes when substitute Tom Boakes missed a header from two yards.
Calne travel to Shrewton United on Tuesday evening.
