Cup Semi-Final first leg - Royals 1-0 Presteigne
Royals overcame the North Division champions
Presteigne, in the first leg of the cup semi final this morning, by
a single goal. Tom Lewis leapt above his marker to head home from a
Joe Hearle corner, with just 5 minutes remaining.
Royals had the better of the first half and could
have been 2 or 3 goals up at half time. However the post and
Presteigne's keeper kept the score at 0-0. Presteigne came good in
the second half and Royals found themselves on the back foot for
much of the period. When Royals did attack the Presteigne goal,
stout defending prevented them from scoring.
Royals must now wait until after Christmas to see if
their one goal lead will be enough to take to the return leg at
Presteigne, as the return leg has been postponed from next weekend.
