'1st Team suffer the Heartbreak of an Injury Time Equaliser.....'

By

Scole United FC 1 v 1 Long Stratton FC (match kindly sponsored by Bill Black)

Scole welcomed South Norfolk rivals Long Stratton down the A140 to Ransome Avenue for their second league fixture of the season knowing they faced a tough task against a resilient side that finished 4th in the Premier Division last season.
Scole named the same starting 11 and squad as their 1st game so were in good spirits and almost full strength. The game kicked off and it soon became obvious that Stratton were going to take the game to their hosts with their direct and pressing style meaning the game was played at a very fast pace. Scole were struggling to their passing game going and at times the game got very scrappy. Half time came & went with chance coming for both sides but the score remained goaless. Then on the 80th minute after Scole had thrown caution to the wind by deploying both of their teenage maestro's in Josh Lucraft & Brad Hunt into attacking midfield positions that the opening goal was scored. Hunt picked up the ball from a throw on the right, turned his player and sent a deep cross in that Alex Blakeley managed to get a powerful header goalwards. The Stratton keeper could only parry this effort out into the danger zone where poacher Connor Kerry was lurking to put the 'Yellows' one up. Stratton then went on full out attack and pushed Scole back deep into their own half. Scole tried to shut the game down by bringing midfielders Jordan Balls & Ashley Baxter back on but the inevitable equaliser came in the 93rd minute to break Scole's hearts! A poor corner for Scole put Stratton on the attack, this led to a foul on the edge of the 18 yard box which was played into the packed penalty area and following a big scramble the ball was bundled in by midfielder Sam Page who to be honest had probably been the best player on the park. James Harrison nearly scored a winner in the dying seconds following a typically daring run but the game ended up a 1-1 draw which in reality was probably a fair result. Scole will feel down that they dropped 2 points at the end but 4 points from 6 is a decent start to the league campaign.
