Rugby Town Colts 3 v 1 Ambleside Warriors (Sponsored by Sytner Coventry) – League Cup Round 2
Colts welcomed Ambleside to Kilsby Lane in the cup looking to avenge their recent narrow league defeat.
The first half saw Colts start brightly with Somi, Thomas and Archie all having chances, but they were rewarded soon after when Archie ran free to score. Ambleside hit back with a scrambled equaliser which gave them momentum, however Alfie, Gabe, Oscar and Harry were up for the challenge and Matt made some good saves as the half ended all square.
Colts started the second half the stronger team, Jack, Nathan and Danny providing a solid midfield and Will’s hard work reinforced the defence. Thomas worked hard to press Ambleside’s defence and it was not long until Colts found the back of the net with Somi scoring a header from Nathan’s cross. A wonder save from Matt kept Colts ahead before Somi ensured the victory with his second of the match.
