Scole Vets held to a draw

Wensum Albion almost snatch late winner

Scole United Veterans travelled to Norwich to play Wensum Albion, in a rearrange league game. Having lost last week's game to the weather, Scole were looking to extend their unbeaten run and head back to the top of the league. They started well, had the lions share of possession, and despite a series of corners were kept out y a combination of the hosts' keeper and the crossbar. Stand-in keeper Partridge had little to do, until the end of the half saving 1 on 1, but then beaten by a header from a dangerous free-kick, Wensum's first real effort on goal. The lead didn't last long as right on half time Hughes headed home from Powell's corner.

Scole started the second half in a similar fashion to the first and should have taken the lead, Hanner heading just wide. Simon Bartram was moved into an advanced role and was causing problems for the hosts, the Scole defence having little to do. Hanner was brought down from the edge of the box, Whittaker's free kick was headed home by Powell. Scole then sat back and allowed Wensum to come forward, despite freshening up with substitutions. Partridge made a smart save tipping the ball onto the post, but was at fault for the equalising goal, dropping a low cross, leaving the hosts forward with an open goal. The hosts could have nicked a winner late-on, the striker through 1 on 1 pushing his shot wide.

So honours even, a closely fought match, and despite not playing to the best of their abilities, Scole come away with a point and still have a game in hand of the leaders, only 1 point behind.
