10 Man Colts Crash Out of County Cup
By Daniel Haines
Weston FC 4 - 1 Ilminster Town Colts
The Colts made the long away trip to Odd Down to face Weston FC in the 3rd round of the Somerset Intermediate Cup, and once again got off to a slow start and fell 1-0 behind. The Colts character showed once again though with a quick reply, Steve Rodber playing a long through ball for Jordan Allen to run through and score.
Having got back into the game, the Colts then conceded a penalty, but young Jack Rutter, in only his second appearance, manage to save to keep the Colts level in the match.
5 minutes later, the decisive moment of the match occurred with Steve Rodber receiving a straight red card following a two footed challenge on a Weston FC player.
The Colts held on until half time, but were unable to see out the second half, conceding three further goals to crash out 4-1.
Some good news for the Colts came closer to home where Halstock defeated Forton Rangers 8-3 giving the Colts a boost in their bid for promotion to the Perry Street Premier Division.
Next week the Colts face struggling Shepton Beauchamp Reserves at home in a 14.30 kick off.
