Started fairly well with debutant Alex Pring Dan Heavey and Jon Bazley bossing the midfield area and it was no surprise when a neat interchange of passes ended with Bazley thumping home a left footed drive from 20 yards to put us 1 up on 25 minutes, another superb move just before halftime involving Jamie Morris and Bazley found Rhys Lock and his clever pass set up Heavey who saw his shot beat the keeper but not the covering defender who got back to clear of the line and keep Devizes in things at halftime.
If we had the best of the first half the second was a completely different story with Devizes dominating from start to finish and after the dubious award of a penalty only an outstanding save by Sam Thomson kept us one up, undeterred Devizes kept up the onslaught and after the award of another spot kick Thomson was unable to repeat his earlier heroics though had he been given time to face the right way for the kick before the Referee blew his whistle who knows what the outcome might have been.
Spurred on by the leveller Devizes poured forwards for a winner which came with the clock showing 90 minutes when a loose ball was bundled over the line to give them a deserved winner.
Thanks to the 3 officials who got most things right on the night and good luck to Devizes in the next round.
