Linnets back to winning ways

September 24, 2017

King's Lynn Town 2-0 Tiverton Town.

A dominate first half from the Linnets was enough to topple league leaders Tiverton at The Walks thanks to goals from Craig Parker and Ryan Hawkins.

Lynn started very strong and created plenty of chances, Leon Mettam crashing a shot against the left hand post, The rebound fell to Ryan Hawkins who could only fire up and over the bar.

The home side then should of taken the lead, A superbly delivered free kick from the right by Michael Clunan was headed straight at visiting goalkeeper Martin Rice by Craig Parker when well placed inside the area.

Lynn finally got their reward on 16 minutes with the opening goal, a cross into the Tiverton box found Mettam at the back post his volley back found Michael Gash who unleashed a thunderous shot that was deflected away from goal but was met by the unmarked Parker who nodded into the net.

Just minutes later the visitors created their first and only real chance of the game, A corner from the left saw skipper Jamie Price rise above everybody only to see his header cannon against the underside of the bar.

Lynn then went on to dominate the remainder of the half, Mettam again having plenty of chances and Hawkins having a superb strike turned away by Rice.

The second Linnets goal arrived on 38 minutes, A superb piece of play from Parker saw him draw in two defenders before threading the ball through to Hawkins who made no mistake to slide the ball past Rice.

Like most games this season the second half didn't live up to the first, Man of the match Cameron Norman turned his opposite fullback inside out before playing a lovely ball across the face of the visiting goal but none of his team mates where on hand for what would of been the easiest of tap in's.

Frazer Blake-Tracy, who was brilliant in the second half, produced a goal-saving tackle on the edge of his own area to prevent a rare chance on goal for the visitors.

Lynn: Street, Norman, Blake-Tracy, Fryatt, Ward, Jarvis, Clunan, Parker (McQuaid 80), Mettam (Siddons 74), Gash (Gillies 74), Hawkins. Subs not used: Gaughran, Hilliard.
Booked: Clunan.
