“No pasarán” was the motto of Millwey's players after they had quickly gone two goals behind at Farway.  

From that moment on every 'Rise' player played with a determination to match the skill of their talented opponents.  

The industrious Nathan Womersley hit the bar and from the rebound Farway’s keeper brought off a fine save to keep out young Owen Enticott's volley. Millwey defended magnificently for the rest of the half with Brett Garner in goal producing some outstanding saves supported by a resolute defence in which Alex Rockett and Imram Choudrey were prominent under the constant pressure of Farway's rampaging forwards.  

The second period was a repeat of the first with the 'Rise' defence coming under constant pressure that resulted in 11 Farway corners and numerous strikes on goal.

Garner was a colossus between the sticks and the whole Millwey team played with a determination not to concede any further goals.
