Plucky Poulton SFC go out in Lancs Sunday Trophy semi-final.

Bad news from Giant Axe, the ground of Lancaster City FC where Poulton SFC were defeated in their Lancashire Sunday Trophy semi final against Preston side AFC Lostock Hall.  Although Poulton had two great chances Lostock deservedly went in 1-0 up at the break due to a double defensive lapse.  Poulton soon equalised in the second half through a speculative Gareth Fegan cross that went over the keeper.  Lostock took the lead once again following a well worked goal before hard working Carl Eastwood headed home a Gary Pett cross on 65 minutes.  Poulton were dominant for the final 25 minutes but couldn't score.  During the first period of extra time Poulton had three or four great chances to win but shots flew just wide.  With five minutes left a coss from the right was misjudged by Poulton keeper Hesketh leaving the unmarked Lostock player the simple task of tapping home.  Game over – unlucky, but a good effort from Poulton.  AFC Lostock Hall will now play Rochdale team Success to the Plough FC at the County Ground Leyland on Monday April 7th. Good luck to both teams in the final and not a bad effort this season from the BFSFA.
