Northwich Victoria 0-3 Tividale
Tividale open the win account
This was Tividale’s second coach journey in two weeks and while everyone loves an away day coach trip and last weeks journey home from Whitchurch was brilliant. the trip back after a win is just something else.
Boss Stuart How had to make a couple of changes to the side who played so well last weekend. With Jakob Burroughs staring his two game holiday. Jake Lloyd started in the middle of the park and fit again Tarryl Davis came in at centre half for the unavailable Joe Hawkins
Vic’s forced a corner in the first minute which was played short between Dylan Switters and Callum Parker, and it was Switters who nearly caught out Louis Connor in goal net with a curled cross. It was mainly Vic’s in possession, but they didn’t have much of an impact in the Tividale penalty area. Vic’s best chance came in the 17th minute as great build up play as Parker, Llyton Chapman, and Joe Camozzi combined which led to a Chapman shot over the bar. Two minutes later, Switters curled an effort in, which was dealt with well by the impressive Connor. It was Tividale who took the lead however with their first real effort, and what a strike it was as well. From a Kameron Campbell throw, the ball was played across the edge of the Vic’s area to Dominic Dell who hit it with the outside of his foot first time, and it flew into the top corner giving Vic’s keeper Adam Reid no chance. Minutes later, Vic’s came close as Parker was inches away from turning in a Matty Clarke cross shot. Tividale then started to press more, and Reid had to produce a smart stop from a Ewan Edwards drilled shot from a tight angle in the 38th minute. Then came the killer blow. In the 44th minute a Taylor Townsend corner was sent in for Tividale from the right, Reid missed it, and the ball fell for Ryan Snape at the back post to poke the ball home.
Half Time:- Northwich Vic’s 0 Tividale 2
Vic’s seemed to come out for the second half with more purpose and pushed Tividale onto the back foot. Marcus Perry, now wide on the left, clipped a shot just over in the 50th minute, whilst 2 minute later, he forced Connor to tip another shot around the post after he beat his man and raced towards goal. Next it was substitute Ryan Jackson’s turn to test Connor as he fired a shot in from the edge of the area, but the keeper just managed to push the shot away. Jackson and Camozzi were teaming up well down the right and it was good interplay between them which led to Camozzi firing a first-time effort just over the bar. In the 76th minute, Vic’s were denied by a wonderful double save by Connor, as he managed to first push out a stinging shot from Caelan Kilheeney before somehow turning over Jackson’s header from the rebound. It just was not going to be Vic’s’ day !Indeed, Tividale then made the game safe in the 78th minute as a cross from the right somehow found its way across goal for Lewis Taylor-Boyce to tap in from 2 yards out.
