'1st Teams Relegation Dogfight goes to final 2 games....!'

Once again Scole fail to hold on to lead!

Scole travelled to Bungay on Tuesday evening bouyed by the performance on the previous Saturday and knowing that 3 points would make them safe from relegation.
Despite missing some 1st team regulars they were replenished with Jack Tipple and Ben Norton-Hugman turning out in our time of need whilst not on Thurlow Nunn duty with Diss Town. Nathan Doe also made a return after a number of weeks unavailability due to work commitments.
Scole's cause wasn't helped when barely 30 seconds from kick off left back Thomas 'Moose' Davey was involved in a sickening clash of heads with his opposing winger! After a delay it was decided that for the best interests of the player he needed to be withdrawn with George Rout coming on as his replacement. Scole recovered well and a very exciting game ensued. Bungay proved they are a very good team and come close on several occasions but the defence marshaled particularly by Tipple held firm. Scole were on good attacking form as well and had several very good chances. Harry Browne had a great chance saved when put through by Norton-Hugman and also hit the post following up a Will Goulding shot that had been well saved. Then a Norton-Hugman header came back off the cross bar from a Dave Coleman corner. So at half-time with the scores level Scole were very much in the game and the large crowd including some vociferous Scole support were very happy with the fare that had been served up.
10 minutes into the 2nd half the impressive 17 yr old Lawrence Brown set Coleman free on the left following a cleared corner from the right. Coleman's twisting run ended when he was upended just inside the 18 yard box ! Goulding confidently tucked away the spot kick to give the 'Yellows' a deserved lead. Scole were then denied a second penalty when Harry Brown was pulled back but because the player stayed on his feet instead of theatrically going to ground he was penalized by not having the foul awarded! This came back to haunt the away side when Bungay finally broke the Scole defence scoring a near post header from one of their really well delivered corners. They doubled their lead shortly after and threatened to run amok for a short period when keeper Ben Buckmaster pulled three or four top top quality saves. Scole rallied and went looking for the equaliser and Harry Brown had a great chance to level but his shot blazed over the bar. Young Kieran Manning who had replaced the tiring Goulding, alongside Brown & Coleman were causing the Bungay defence problems with their pace but the goal just wouldn't come and it was Bungay who completed the scoring breaking with pace to finally put the game to bed.
A harsh scoreline and another very good performance from the Scole lads who with a large number of teenagers in the squad are just showing their lack of experience at this level to close games out.

Player of the Match: a good performance from Jack Tipple and Lawrence Brown but the award for this game goes to goalkeeper Ben Buckmaster for some outstanding stops when the second half wobble came!
