"Scole bounce back with a win away at Watton"

Watton United FC 2 V 3 Scole United FC

Scole made the trip over to Watton looking to bounce back from last weeks defeat to UEA. Scole made two changes with Luke Hunt coming in for his first start at LB with Laurence Brown joining the lengthy injury list and Nathan Ireland coming in for Dan Ryland who moved to the bench.

Scole started quickly and took the lead when an excellent Ash Baxter corner found Tayler Pooley who’s header was saved but fell kindly to the on rushing Ben Norton-Hugman who fired home into the unguarded net.

This should have given Scole the confidence to go on and take the game to Watton, however to Watton’s credit they responded well and 10 minutes later found themselves level after a deflected free kick found its way to an unmarked Watton forward to tap home despite the best efforts of Buckmaster in the Scole goal.

The remainder of the half was a scrappy affair with both teams being guilty of poor quality when in good positions.

Scole came in at half time knowing the importance of trying to find a way to win the game, however 10 minutes into the second half Watton took the lead when a ball wide wasn’t dealt with and the Watton wide man cut inside and shot past the diving Buckmaster.

This was a thoroughly deserved goal for Watton who came out second half the much better side and in truth Scole weren’t at the races.

Scole were now up against it and had to show character to try to get back into the game.

With 15 minutes remaining Harry Browne back from his short stint at Wroxham unleashed an unstoppable left footed shot into the top corner to draw Scole level.

Scole were now throwing men forward desperately trying to force a winner, but it was Watton who nearly took the lead when a swift counter attack saw the Watton striker fire just wide from the edge of the area.

With time running out it looked like a draw was on the cards, however Bradley Hunt had other ideas, when receiving the ball in the wide left position, he skipped past his man and planted an unstoppable shot into the far right corner.

Scole saw out the last 3 minutes to record a excellent win despite being far from their best.

So overall a great win that was decided by two excellent finishes which now sets them up nicely for next weeks final game before Christmas against Loddon.
