Ilfracombe continue their cup successes

PUBLISHED: 18:00 06 March 2012

Ilfracombe Reserves moved through to the semi-finals of the Brayford Cup with a 3-0 win away to Bradworthy, maintaining a cup record which has seen them also reach the Westward Ho! Cup semis and the quarter-finals of the Torridge Cup –they play North Molton tonight (Wednesday) – without conceding a goal.

Joe Alcock opened the scoring for Ilfracombe and a 30-yard free kick by Mark Gilfillan made it 2-0 at the break. Gilfillan widened the gap with his second in the second period.

Boca are moving ominous up the Premier Division table again, their latest result a 10-0 win at home to Torrington.

In a remarkable game, there was no score at half-time as Boca battered at the Torrington door, but could not break through.

The second half was only a couple of minutes old, however, before the breakthrough came and then the floodgates opened.

Mark Barrow and Scott Sharp both scored hat-tricks and other goals came from Matthew Deakin (2), Tom Marsh and Simon Ovey’s first of the season.

Putford had an up and down weekend, following up a 3-0 league win at home to Dolton on Saturday with a 1-0 defeat at the hands of North Molton next day.

Matt Coles, Wayne Pomeroy and Matt May were their Saturday scorers.

Resurgent Shebbear landed their third win in a row with a 4-0 result in a basement battle at home to Barnstaple AAC.

Matt Facey, James Vanstone, Greg Mitchell and Shaun Sluggett scored the goals that lift Shebbear five points clear of the relegation zone.

Torridgeside and Shamwickshire fought out a battle royal before Shammy finally won through 5-4 .

The first half hour showed no signs of the scoring to come as the teams effectively cancelled each other out.

Sam Schiller then opened the scoring for Shammy and added a second. When Will Nicholls made it 3-0 it looked to be ‘game over.’ But Torridgeside pulled one back late in the first half and opened the second in the same style to draw level at 3-3. Shammy hit two more to take command again before a late penalty made for a nervous finish.

Brothers Sam and Nick Fishwick gave Appledore Reserves the spoils 2-0 away to Combe Martin.
