Winning start for Stourport
10:31am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Sportsview
South Notts 3 Stourport 6 UNDER-STRENGTH Stourport travelled to South Notts and gave a strong performance on a difficult astroturf surface in their first league game of the season.
An early Dan Petrie goal and a second from an Andy Cavendish drag flick gave the local side a two-goal cushion. South Notts then came back into the game for the last 15 minutes of a half dominated by Stourport and scored a well taken goal with approach work down the Stourport left.
Stourport started the second half the same way they started the first and soon went 4-1 up Chris Hill and another from a Nathan Claris direct hit short corner. The home side scored their second from a shot short corner but a second Cavendish drag flick restored Stourport’s three-goal advantage and this was soon followed by a Tom Stokes diving finish to make the score. A third South Notts goal from a short corner drag flick proved to be the last action of the game.
South Notts finished 4th in this division last season but Stourport will not be reading too much into that as this will be a long and challenging journey to try and return to the Midlands Premier at the first attempt.
