Kingsmead end GT Sports' 19-month unbeaten run in Bath & District Sunday League
BATH SUNDAY Rickie Scott's strike ended GT Sports' 19-month long unbeaten record as Kingsmead booked their place in the final of the Stan Milsom Cup.
The holders had not tasted defeat since May 2011 but fell behind when Scott's wonderful left-footed effort from the edge of the box found the net on 15 minutes.
A closely-fought hour-and-a- quarter followed, with both sides battling to get the upper hand.
GT had a penalty saved by Andy King, who also made a terrific point-blank stop to earn a clean sheet and the man-of-the-match honours.
