Match Report: Druids vs Penrhyncoch FC
A brilliant performance at The Rock yesterday, as Druids got back to winning ways in style, with a 4-1 victory over Penrhyncoch FC.
After a disappointing result last weekend at Gresford Athletic, the lads were eager to get back on track with a home tie against Penrhyncoch. It was a great boost to have our ‘Druids Till I Die’ Exeter fans make their annual journey up to The Rock to support the lads!
We came out of the blocks firing, and took the lead within 5 minutes when Adam Stephens was in the right place at the right time to tap in a low cross at the far post! It was an excellent display and reaction from last weekend, as Druids were dominating the game from this point on, really pressing our opponents back as they were forced to try and catch us on the counter.
We got out second goal on 24 minutes. Josh Roseberry-Beamond cut inside from the right flank and found the bottom corner with a well place strike. The lads didn’t take their foot off the gas and got a third before halftime when Callum Stephens curled a brilliant strike into the top corner from the edge of the area.
We went into the break 3-0 up and well in control of the game. The lads were full of confidence at this point hoping to get some more in the second half.
However there were some slightly nervy times after Penrhyncoch pulled on back on 61 minutes. A free kick hit the crossbar, then the follow up hit the bar again before our opponents finally bundled the ball in to make it 3-1.
The lads kept their composure following the goal though, and restored their three goal cushion shortly after, when Danny Edwards struck a fine volley from the edge of the box to make it 4-1. We saw the game out for the remaining minutes to get a valuable three points and keep pace with the top 4.
A huge thank you to our loyal Exeter fans for making the long journey to support the team. It turned out to be an excellent performance, result and day overall for the club!
We are back in action next Saturday with a trip away to Porthmadog FC.
Come on you Druids!
