St George’s continued to bring the game to their West End rivals, for the rest of the half but were unable to find a second goal, and that kept the Trojans in the match.

Referee: A Francis.

The second half was more open. Ten minutes after the restart, St. George’s had another goal ruled out for a foul. And then, Somerset had their first real opportunity, but Leo Burgess’s smart finish from close range was ruled out for offside.
