Atlantic storm into semis

15:52 20 February 2013

Northside Atlantic are the North Devon representatives in the Devon Intermediate Cup semi-finals after beating Hartland 1-0 in the area final on Saturday.

In a game of two penalties, Northside scored while Hartland missed.

Hartland keeper Josh Wood made a double-save from Matt Cann before Northside captain Neil Armstrong scored from the spot.

Northside’s Shaun Wilson was shown a straight-red but Hartland rarely tested Northside keeper Dan Barnes.

On 80 minutes Hartland’s Alex Slee – who had previously knocked in 17 out of 17 attempts from the spot – hit the post.

Northside held out for the final few minutes and the winners’ shield was presented to their captain Neil Armstrong.

There was a minute’s silence before the game in honour of Mike Stevens and his work for North Devon football. Mike was well known to both teams and Northside dedicated their win to him.

**********

in the Torridge Cup Shamwickshire Rovers made progress through the first round of the Torridge Cup on Sunday with a 2-1 win away to Ashwater.

James Bateman and Adam Halling were the Shammy scorers.
