Barum stun Blue­bells as run ends

The Non-League Football Paper - - SOUTHERN LEAGUE CENTRAL & SOUTH - By John Davis

TWO break­away Barn­sta­ple goals earned the points and brought Yate's un­beaten league run to an end.

The home side paid the penalty of miss­ing chances in the first half with Ben Brooks, Ol­lie Me­hew and Adam Price all squan­der­ing chances of putting them in front.

Then in a rare at­tack, Barn­sta­ple took the lead in the 22nd minute when Harry Stevens' cross de­flected off a Yate de­fender and in.

Yate again had more of the pos­ses­sion af­ter the break but found the Barn­sta­ple de­fence hard to break down un­til Josh Ford headed in the equaliser from a Price cor­ner on the hour.

The visi­tors soaked up fur­ther pres­sure and went ahead again soon af­ter­wards when Stevens got free down the left and from his deep cross Tal­lan Mitchell volleyed in on the far post.

Yate pushed hard in the clos­ing stages but the late lev­eller proved elu­sive.

STAR MAN: Harry Stevens (Barn­sta­ple) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
