PTEMPEST United started the match against Lytham where they left off last week continuing to play fast flowing interpassing football that all but overwhelmed their opponents

PTony Burnett especially was having his best game for some time supplying a stream of crosses but Tempest where frustrated by a combination of poor finishing and stout defending.

PJust when in looked as if Lytham had weathered the Tempest storm up popped Ian Horrocks to slide in a second goal in a week after fine approach work by Mark Grundy and Paul Haddock in mid field.

PLytham fought back and in their first real attack were awarded a hotly disputed penalty that drew them level just before half time.

PContinuing in the second half with the tactics of ten men behind the ball Lytham reduced Tempest keeper Andy Hassall to no more than a spectator as they continued to commit a stream of fouls to keep out the lively Tempest forwards. Lytham were lucky to survive the match with a full side on the pitch and only two bookings.
