WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Blyskawica pegged back by Shrewton
BLYSKAWICA conceded late on as they shared a 1-1 draw with high-flying Shrewton in the Wiltshire League Premier Division.
The home side took the lead shortly after the break when James Pratt dispossessed his man on the edge of the box before curling left-footed into the top corner.
That was how it stayed until around 10 minutes from the end, when a Shrewton player skipped away from four men and won a corner, from which the equaliser was flicked home.
Blyskawica boss Phil Trueman said: “In the first half we were against the wind and it was a scrappy game, but we did quite well and our keeper made a few good saves.
“I think the wind aided the goal we scored in the second half but I wasn’t too happy that four of my players were beaten before they scored their equaliser.
“Overall the game deserved to be a draw, even though we shouldn’t have conceded a goal in that way.”
Southbrook scored a goal in each half to win 2-0 at former Hellenic League side Trowbridge and move top of the table.
Devan Bryan broke the deadlock when his penalty was saved and he made no mistake with the rebound.
The advantage was extended in the second period when Ant Packer sent home a cracking effort from outside the box.
Southbrook boss Albert Dearing said: “We tend to be weary after a week off but first half we were very good.
“Second half we were very disciplined and shut up shop for a great away win.”
Elsewhere, Supermarine Sports Club kept up the pressure at the top with a 5-0 whitewash of Wilts Calne Town, with all of the goals coming in the first period.
Kieran Jennings sent home a long-range free kick and scored direct from a corner before nodding in his hat-trick. The other goals were scored by Chris Allen and Lee Hayward.
Boss Pete Milhench said: “We’ve got no strikers at the moment but we scored some really good goals.”
Purton reserves recorded their second victory of the season as they beat Devizes reserves 3-1.
Marlborough picked up a useful 2-1 win at home to Ludgershall while Wroughton lost 2-1 at home to Corsham reserves.
In Division 1, Wootton Bassett Dev kept up the pressure on Melksham reserves with a 4-2 win over Wroughton reserves.
On the scoresheet for Bassett were Andy Guppy (2), Dennis King, Lewis Petrie and Shaun Terry.
