DAGG'S GOAL Trowbridge took the lead after 30 minutes. Webb sent long pass to Abrahams, who took the ball on before passing inside to Dagg, who beat Tavlor with a really fine cross drive. Three minutes later came goal No. 2. Webb was dribbling his way through when he received an unceremonious bump and fell. While the home crowd was shouting protests, Abrahams calmly took up the good work by slamming the ball just inside the upright - a fine bit of opportunism. Grlmason netted again, but was accounted offside. the second half Glastonbury displayed remarkable energy and never allowed Trowbridge to reassert their first-half superiority. In the minute Tuck carelessly handled in the penalty area - the only blemish a great-hearted display - and left back Parsons made no mistake with the spot kick. Ten minutes later, after much excitement, during which Vince made thrilling save when he hurled himself across his goal turn a shot by Miles past the post, Glastonbury drew level. Sheppard cleared feebly, the ball was passed forward into the home goal area, and Starr sent in a cross shot and the ball entered the net off an upright. Trowbridge tried hard to get together again. but the forwards had lost their clever Helical initiative. Sutherland played calmly and effectively at left half, and Jesse Hansford tackled with remarkable zest. Of the visitors, Owen and Allaway were the pick of the forwards, and the wing halves Spring and Norris were outstanding in defence or attack.
