Saltash United 3rd team kept their recent good form going with a comfortable 3-1 win against Lostwithiel at home on Saturday.
The first twenty minutes were relatively even, but the Ashes were definitely getting on top when Lewis Head finished off a move following some good work from Jayden Wood. Quite what Headsy - one of the three centre backs - was doing so far forward tucking in the ball under the despairing keeper we can but wonder, but we are grateful.
Saltash effectively clinched the game with two in two minutes from striker Jake Ahanonu; the first a good drive from the edge of the box, the second showing quick reactions to turn the ball in from a corner.
Lostwithiel got one back close to the end of the game, but Saltash were deserved winners. Said Robin Duff after the game: "We are not getting carried away. The players are working hard but we know there are areas to work on, we were not able to push on in the second half as we would have liked and we did not make the most of the opportunities we had, but our shape was good. We have a massive game at the weekend against the runaway premier leaders and we will be ready."
