Slaters Second Loss On The Bounce!
Delabole killed off in 8 minute period!
Second placed Tregrehan Mills and leaders for most of the season were the visitors today in this top 3 battle. Delabole were without a few of their regular starters and this was to prove key in this match, with the Delabole chairman Darren 'The Cat' Rivers pulling on the gloves to keep goal.
In the first half both sides kept it pretty even but The Slaters had 3 good chances to capitalize, the best of which the visiting keeper pulled off a fine save from a Glen Burrell
effort to deny Delabole. Both sides went in at halftime, 0-0.
The second half got underway and this was a tight match with both sides not wanting to relinquish going behind, but in 70th minute the visitors took the lead through a soft goal leaving the Tregrehan player unmarked near the back post to score, 0-1. Then The Slaters capitulated, 2 minutes later Tregrehan grabbed their second goal which was well taken, 0-2. This seemed to knock Delabole and were looking to unlikely to trouble Tregrehan. The game was killed off in the 78th minute when the visitors scored their third goal with a great turn and volley, 0-3. Fulltime.
Delabole played well in the first half and should of been in the lead before the break but as soon as Tregrehan got their first goal they were on the front foot. Taking nothing away from team who played but The Slaters needed the key players who were missing. Lets hope now Delabole can get back on track with the remaining 6 games of the season (the next 5 being away) and get that push for promotion which they richly deserve!
