Lacklustre Teversal taste defeat to Campion

A lacklustre Teversal left Bradford with what they deserved, nothing. Campion dominated the game with a workmanlike performance that earned them a deserved 3-0 victory to extend their undefeated run to five games.

The home side soon settled to put the visitors on the back foot. Jacob Buchanan caused mayhem all afternoon down the right flank so it was no surprise when on 14 minutes when he drew the foul from Dawson in the penalty area.

Scott Eastwood stepped up to power home to Turton’s left as the keeper dived to the right. Buchanan was the architect once more midway through the first period when an intelligent ball in behind the Teversal defence invited Bradshaw to finish but the player had strayed offside.

Campion did manage to double their lead on 35 minutes with Buchanan and Bradshaw combining for Hey to have the time and space to calmly fire home past the stranded Turton to make it 2-0. The second half began with the visitors making an early impact. Mitchell and Fletcher forced a couple of half chances that were well saved by Armitage.

Buchanan saw an effort glance the top of the bar while Fletcher went close for Teversal and Mitchell had one chalked off for offside. Any comeback hopes the visitors had was dispelled when on 78 minutes the host made it 3-0.

Buchanan’s cross found Cooke who headed against the bar. From the resulting goal kick, Turton’s poor clearance went straight to Cooke who explored the space down the right flank before crossing to Hey to finish with aplomb.
