|Opposition||STOURPORT (AVON LEAGUE SEMI-FINAL)|
|Result||D 1 - 1|
|Time played||Shoot out (4-3)|
A frustrating first half with Bath Buccs having all the possession & pressing hard but failing to score. A pass in from John Holdoway led to the first goal from Zeb Goldsmith early in the second half. Stourport kept fighting, drawing our players into a congested midfield and then managed to score from their only shot in the D. The game ended as a disappointing draw and the boys had to pick themselves up for the penalty shuffles. In a nail biting finale, Zeb Goldsmith took the first and quickly got past the keeper who knocked him off balance & he agonisingly missed the goal, whilst Stourport scored their first. Fortunately Dan Squires, John Holdoway, Will Tucker and Jules Lonsdale all managed to score from theirs and our goalkeeper Zak Dinning saved two of Stourport's shuffles giving us our win.
The Avon League final will be played on May 7th against Cheltenham
