Coplestonians FC Trimley Red Devils 1
Coplestonians FC 2

Half time: 0 - 1

Kick off: 14:30, Saturday, September 7 2019

The home side started strongly but Cops soon took control and Yani Duka twice fired over the bar when well placed. However, after 9 minutes a Kirk Ferniz pass saw Duka shrug off the challenge of two defenders and curl home the opener beyond Ben Punter. Cops continued to dominate and a long kick by Bailay Fairweather saw Jordan Godbold set up Jack Dawson but he shot over the bar. Punter saved well from Harry Cole before Trimley responded but Josh Hewitt’s shot was well gathered by Fairweather.
After the break Louis Elliston’s shot went over the bar as the home side put Cops under pressure. Cops were still dangerous on the break and Punter halted a good run from Josh Smith before James Roberts blocked a shot from Duka. Ricardo Phillips curled his shot just wide for TRD whilst Jack Dawson fired wide for Cops after a fine run. Both Dan and Josh Horton shot wide as Trimley pressed but Cops then hit the bar through a fine shot from Dave King. Cops extended their lead when Dawson jinked his way into the area and crossed for King to slam home. Phillips reduced the arrears in the 90th minute but Cops held out for the three points.
