Tuesday March 12th 2013 AFC Totton Away Tuesday 12th March 2013 Evo-Stik League Southern Premier AFC Totton 2 Frome Town 0 Frome Scorers: None AFC Totton Scorers: Brown (44), Cargill (81) Crowd: 243 Star Man: Rhys Baggeridge Entertainment Value: 3 In a mirror image of their last match, Frome started brightly, dominated for the first half an hour, failed to score and were hit by a goal at the end of each half which gave  AFC Totton a 2-0 home win and left Frome still searching for that elusive goal scoring ability. Buoyed by their win on Saturday, Frome were keen to start the match much quicker than they had in that match, and they came out of the blocks with real purpose.  The first five minutes saw Luke Ballinger cut in and shoot wide and Matt Bryant had a curling effort just deflected for a corner. Darren Jefferies burst into the Totton box only to be bundled over by a defender, but play was waved on. Successive corners around the thirteenth minute led to Ballinger forcing Ross Casey to save low, and then Ballinger set up Bryant for a shot which was blocked. Jefferies got behind the Totton defence in the 22nd but Casey again smothered the ball, and just after, another flowing move saw Bryant volley just past the post. After half an hour, the storm seemed to abate and Totton started to come into the match. Jamie Rudd saw a volley cannon off Matt Clark for a corner, and then Rudd again caused problems as his right wing cross was headed over the bar by Stefan Brown, and then Brown himslef set James Coutts for a shot and it was starting to look a little ominous for Frome. Ballinger was taken out very late by Totton full back Ryan Hill in the 43rd minute, and as the defender had already picked up a yellow for a foul on Jordan Copp, it looked as if the home side would go down to ten men, but the referee decided otherwise and he stayed on the pitch. Just at the worst psychological moment, Totton scored in the 44th minute as Stefan Brown won the ball in midfield, strode forward and unleashed a shot that flew past Darren Chitty from the edge of the penalty area. The goal seemed to take the impetus out of Frome, and though they started the second half with purpose, there seemed to be a desperation in the final third and shots became increasing long range and less accurate. Darren Chitty had to save low from Chris Mason in the 55th and a minute later, Mason latched onto a poor clearance and sent a 30 yarder onto the Frome bar with Chitty scrambling back. The 67th minute saw mass protests as Totton got the ball in the net after the linesman had flagged for offside, the referee allowed play to carry on, then disallowed the goal, then the linesman appeared to award it. Eventually, the goal was disallowed, but it highlights the confusion of the current offside law that seems work differently depending on who you talk to. Frome’s substitutions made little impact, and Totton eventually sealed the match Bailey Cargill thundered in a great goal from 25 yards in the 81st minute and the match was done and dusted. The  “H&B Tyres Man of the Match” award was awarded to left back Rhys Baggeridge for an impressive display in the defence.
