WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Blyskawica steal win from Purton
BLYSKAWICA produced a superb comeback to win 4-2 against visitors Purton reserves in the Wiltshire League Premier Division.
The hosts were playing into the wind in the first half and found themselves 2-0 down at the break.
Blyskawica boss Phil Trueman used all three of his substitutes at half-time in an attempt to improve on an underwhelming first-half display.
It had the desired effect, as Ashley Chapman halved the deficit early on in the second period, before Chris Mills levelled following a neat move.
Gianni Costbile gave Blyskawica the lead for the first time and Chapman then doubled his tally from the penalty spot to make sure of the triumph.
“We tried to keep it tight early on, because we knew we were always likely to have the upper hand in the second half with the wind behind us,” said Trueman.
Two goals either side of half-time gave Trowbridge a comprehensive 4-0 victory at Ludgershall.
After struggling to break Ludgershall down for the first 30 minutes, Trowbridge took the lead through Ian Groves before doubling their lead just 10 minutes later.
Despite an improved performance from Ludgershall in the second half, the visitors added gloss to the victory as Pete Spong and Bradley Partner got in on the act.
