TA through to Devon Cup Final

5.2.16 Devon Cup

The first 11 are through to the Devon Cup Final for the second year in a row after a 2-0 win against Plymstock. TA dominated from the first whistle taking the game to their opponents controlling possession. Plymstock defended well and kept TA from scoring in the first half. The second half started in the same way as the first with TA dominating and finally TA took the lead through a great individual goal from leading scorer Owen Stockton. TA made many chances after this and eventually doubled their lead after Sam Hebbes headed home from a Alex Constantinou cross.

TA’s opponents in the final are yet to be decided.
