Cheriton’s keeper made a fine save soon after, when Chris Surridge connected with a fine header from a fantastic cross form Jamie Connett.
Cheriton were unlucky themselves when a shot was cleared off the line by James Youlden and against the run of play Cheriton scored with a fine effort from their striker breaking through and easily scoring pass Tipton’s advancing keeper.
Tipton, never perturbed by the goal then played some quick passing attractive football and were almost rewarded when Nick Feeney almost latched onto a fine cross by Ben Dawe. Dawe himself fired a shot from the edge of the area smashing the cross bar.
The second goals soon came when Gosney skipped passed a player on the edge of the area blasting the back of the net- the keeper was very fortunate not to have got in the way!
