Taunton Saturday League Cup: Wellington A 3, Porlock 2
Wellington went into this cup tie off the back of a fantastic win at home to leaders Wyvern.
Manager Luke O’Hara made a few changes to the starting 11 and also changed the formation against what turned out to be a stubborn Porlock side.
Wellington controlled the game but just couldn’t create in the final third and Porlock’s first attack saw a rush of blood to the head from keeper Jared Holder, wiping out the striker to concede a penalty against the run of play.
Wellington continued to keep possession and eventually equalised through a tidy finish from Thomas Scarlett. Wellington continued to play possession football and were eventually rewarded through an audacious lob from Jordan Sellick to make it 2-1 at half time.
A couple of changes were made in midfield and the second half was similar to the first, Wellington dominating without any real clearcut chances, and Porlock with their only real attack of the half equalised again to make it 2-2.
A bold move from the management saw four changes and a change in formation for the final 25 minutes. Wellington then started to press more with the Porlock keeper pulling off a couple of good saves from a Sellick close-range shot and a Tom Davies long-range effort.
Finally, with five minutes remaining, Rohan Poulsom and Scarlett linked up well outside the box for Poulsom to run through and slot home to make it 3-2.
So Wellington, who have now won two games on the bounce for the first time this season, go through to the last 16 where they will face Galmington Reserves.
On Saturday, the A team host tough opposition in Bridgwater Sports 1st at the Rec with a 2pm kick off.
