Keynsham ran out deserved 2-0 victors in dreadful conditions at Almondsbury.
The Ks settled the better of the two sides, with the gale-force wind at their backs. In only the 2nd minute, Ryan Ashwood’s pace took him through on the keeper, who made an excellent save and got an accidental kick in the head from the rebound for his troubles. Ks had the bulk of the possession and the home side were restricted to a couple of off-target shots.
On the half-hour mark, an Almondsbury midfielder received a straight red card for an off the ball challenge on Thomas Bannerman-Williams. They were made to pay for this just 5 minutes later, when Luke Lipinski reacted quickest to a loose ball in the box and coolly slotted it home.
Keynsham adapted their play into the blustery wind in the second half and made their one man advantage count, often stretching the home side. Keeper Matt Dunk had little to do until the last 20 minutes, but he then excelled himself with four great point-blank saves as Almondsbury threw bodies forward in search of an equaliser.
However the Ks made the game safe in the 90th minute. Luke Lipinski was fouled 30 yards out and his quick thinking caught the home defence asleep, as he flicked the ball through for Pat Davison, who took it round the keeper and just managed to keep his feet to knock the ball into an empty net.
Many thanks to committee member Julian French for the report.
2 wins from 2 and the K’s will look to build on that when they welcome high flying Shepton Mallet to the AJN Stadium on Tuesday night, 7.45 KO.
Hope to see you there!
