Millwey Rise Reserves went down 3-0 when they entertained Division Seven side HT Dons in a Geary Cup tie.

The visitors were two goals to the good in the first ten minutes before Millwey realised they were in a game of football. From this stage on the home side completely dominated the game, but lacked the ability to get the ball in the net and also missed a penalty to add to their woes.

The second half carried on where the first period finished. In all, Millwey either hit the post or upright at least half a dozen times before the inevitable happened. A long punt up-field bounced past Terry Male in the Millwey goal after a defensive mix up to leave the final score 3-0 in the visitors favour.

For Millwey, Mark Pike and Tyler Allen were the pick of the team who all played well but the rub of the green was definitely against them.

On Saturday (March 3), Millwey travel to Sandford (3pm).
