Two second half goals for Tiverton earned them three points against ten man Godalming at Wey Court.
The match was only thirteen minutes old when Godalming were reduced to ten men – Victor Kiri was the receiver after a robust challenge, much to the anger of his teammates against the decision. Despite being a man short, Godalming created he first real chance of the match, slotting the ball past the goalkeeper only for it to be cleared off the line. Tiverton’s Jules Emati Emati had a chance for the visitors at the other end, but his misguided header went past the far post. Godalming’s frustration with referee was clear, with five yellow cards being handed out to Godalming players during the remainder of the half, by referee Ben Cobb.
Godalming were coping well with ten men, managing to contain Tiverton but not really offering a goalscoring threat. Tiverton made the breakthrough in 69 minutes, when a far post cross found Ryan Richards, who headed in unmarked at the far post. Six minutes later Tiverton doubled their lead, an unstoppable effort from James Richards found the top corner from 25 yards. Tiverton struck the woodwork twice after the goals, running out comfortable victors in the end.
