BAS take Stock of huge win

Bath Chronicle - - SPORT -

AFC BAS re­turned to win­ning ways in a hastily ar­ranged Bath & District Di­vi­sion 2 fix­ture against Rad­stock Al­bion. Will Dalziel’s men never looked back from a storm­ing start in the mist when they found them­selves 3-0 up in­side 17 min­utes thanks to two fine Dan Shep­pard fin­ishes and Dan Mar­riott’s tap-in fol­low­ing a de­fen­sive mishap. Tom Cook pulled one back af­ter the break when his air­borne cross dipped in, but Shep­pard added two more with Ja­son Har­ri­son, Ben Pad­field (2) and Chris Banks also net­ting in an even­tual 9-1 win. De­spite see­ing Kieran Brinkhurst net from in­side his own half, Tramways went down to a 5-2 loss against Grif­fin and West­wood. Cameron Hen­ley also scored for the hosts, but Grif­fin’s Alex Raistrick (3), Rick Myles and a Steve Con­nor penalty proved too much at Odd Down. Ro­man Bath­elona made it backto-back wins with a thrilling 7-5 suc­cess against A Lit­tle Dif­fer­ent. The glut of goals con­tin­ued in the Stan Mil­som Cup with a whop­ping 46 in six ties. Bath United only need two scor­ers to notch ten against Two Weir – Jack Row­lands hit­ting a dou­ble hat-trick and Bren­dan Brinkworth chip­ping in with four. Odd Down over­came a scare against Olympic Vic­to­ria, from two di­vi­sions be­low. Daniel Nikolovski and Andy Rhead re­duced the deficit from 3-0 to 3-2 at one point, but the Down­ers even­tu­ally put the game to bed, win­ning 7-2, Lee Rud­land one of many to claim hat-tricks at the week­end. Tim Ber­ney (2), Ty Mulholland and Lee O’brien were their other scor­ers. An­other hat-trick hero was Mark Tay­lor of Her­itage in a 5-2 win over Lans­down, Jac Humphries adding the other two. Dribuild’s cup run con­tin­ued, over­com­ing Claver­ton Park 5-3 at Lans­down. FC Estrella needed to work hard to over­come Far­ring­ton. Hav­ing trailed twice, they needed late goals from Chris Spurrey and Andy Marks to see them through in a 4-2 suc­cess. The low­est scor­ing match was from ar­guably the tie of the round on pa­per, where hold­ers Kingsmead over­came GT Sports in a tem­pes­tu­ous en­counter, with the lat­ter end­ing with ten men. The hold­ers pre­vailed, over­com­ing a Jack Moon missed penalty to win 3-2 with both Ben Par­sons (2) and James Ric­cio, scor­ing from the spot. Di­vi­sion 3’s only match saw Bear Flat claim top spot with their fifth win in a row, beat­ing FC Brew­house 6-1 on the 3G. Saxon Bas­son (3), Tom Smith (2) and Liam Davies con­trib­uted for Bears, Brew­house’s con­so­la­tion was through Alex Press.
