Game 9: Odd Down 2.1 Camelford (FA Vase)


Game 9: Odd Down 2.1 Camelford (FA Vase) 31.10.15

Odd Down’s ground is located next to the Bath Park and Ride so I left the car there and strolled round to the ground for an FA Vase tie between Western League Odd Down and South West Peninsula League Camelford. Despite it being the last day in October, the sun was shining brightly throughout the match.

Odd Down took the lead just before halftime with a header from a corner at the far end and almost doubled it minutes later when an effort was disallowed for offside. Camelford stepped up a gear in the second half and had a lot of pressure but the final ball continued to be overhit. With ten minutes to go a shot was deflected in the area and a Camelford player found himself unmarked and onside. He put the ball into the net and it looked as if we were heading for extra time. Odd Down had other ideas and with five minutes to go a good shot was tipped wide. The ball was played back into the area and the cross was blasted in from close range for the winner.
