Four missed penalties in Newbridge's victory over Larkhall Inn
Four second-half penalties were missed – two by either side – as Newbridge maintained their 100 per cent record in Roper Rhodes Bathrooms Bath & District League Division 2 with a 2-1 victory over Larkhall Inn.
Newbridge fell behind five minutes before the break but were vastly improved after it and deservedly drew level when Andy Watson and Benjamin Thomas linked well to set up goalscorer James Curtis.
Thomas then had the morning’s first spot-kick saved at the expense of a corner, from which Sam Sibley put Newbridge in front with an excellent header.
Larkhall failed to find the target with their first penalty before Sibley put his wide at the other end. With six minutes to go, Larkhall were again handed the chance to equalise when the referee pointed to the spot but keeper Barry Wootten made the save to secure Newbridge’s ninth win in as many matches.
