In the 20th minute a free kick from Dandy Town’s Damon Ming was headed goalward by Saki Tuzo, but Kioshi Trott dove to his right to make the save. Three minutes later the Devonshire Cougars came close to taking the lead, but no one could get on the end of a Jesse Seymour cross.


Dandy Town loss the services of K’wonde Lathan who was involved in a clash of heads incident with Lovintz Tota that resulted in Lathan being injured in the 43rd minute. In injury time Coddington had a shot go wide after Korvon Tucker had headed the ball down to his feet.

In the 60th minute Dandy Town Hornets’ Jah-Quille Stowe weaved his way past several Devonshire Cougars players with the ball falling to the feet of Simmons whose shot was blocked. With Dandy Town still on the attack, Simmons’ cross from the right went through a maze of players and with the entire goal open Caldre Burgess fired over the crossbar from six yards out.
