Moore and Tratt keep Colyton in the cup.
GRANDISON Cup holders Colyton march on in this year’s competition after a 2-1 win over Farway United.
It was far from plain sailing as Farway completely dominated the first half and were unfortunate not to go into the break with much more than the one goal they did take in. Colyton were poor in the first half with the most glaring miss being that of Jason Potter!
The half highlighted the differences in the two teams, Colyton, lacking in confidence, and Farway, showing bags of team spirit and workmanlike effort.
The second period saw Colyton come to the fore as they set about restoring some pride, but, once again, scoring was a real issue!
Chance after chance was created and duly missed until finally, on 70 minutes, they drew level when George Moore’s in-swinging corner ended up in the back of the net.

Ten minutes later Richard Tratt carved his way through two tackles and then unleashed an unstoppable drive into the roof of the net.
The victory was long overdue and hopefully this will be a stepping stone to re-energised the faulting league campaign
