Yate draw at Larks

The Larks started the game well and were on top for the first ten minutes but couldn’t make their pressure count and Yate slowly managed to assert themselves.
Jack Camm floated a corner in on 12 minutes for Yate and Lewis Powell forced a good save from the Larks keeper, who pushed it away.
Yate were in again on 15 minutes as Powell was found with a long ball. The striker managed to get to the byline to cross for Luke Bryan with the Larks defence slipping over. This allowed Bryan to take a touch and shoot but the keeper saved.
The failure to take this chance proved costly as Yate were soon 1-0 up on 35 minutes. Captain Kye Mountford’s freekick was flicked on in the area as the Larks defence lost their footing and Camm was on hand to pounce on the loose ball; firing past the helpless John.
Conceding only fired up the Larks to push for a goal of their own and they didn’t have long to wait. A corner on 42 minutes was headed in by the unmarked Ed Dryden at the back post to leave things all square at the break.
Jack Ball was introduced in the second half for Yate to inject some pace and energy into the game as the Yate and Lark players began to tire.
Yate had slightly more possession this half but it was the Larks that saw out the game with the better of the chances.
Harvey Rivers made a terrific save managing to turn the ball around the post for a corner. Rivers was busy again a few minutes later when a freekick found a Larks player ghosting in at the back unmarked only for the Yate number 1 to save well again.
