Point Denied By Injury Time
An opening game point was
frustratingly snatched away from the Reserves
tonight, with the game deep into injury-time.
Mile Oak had created the better
chances in the opening 20 minutes, beating the
offside trap 3 times. Two efforts
were wasted and the third produced a great save from
Simon Parsons. Peacehaven's best chance in the first
half was a searching drive from Darren Wall which
scraped past the post. Michael Page thought he'd
given Peacehaven the lead on the stroke of half
time, after converting a cross from Sam Wells, only
to see the goal ruled out for offside.
The visitors took the lead after 65
minutes, hitting Peacehaven on the break. The game
could have been level soon after with Jack Loraine
seeing his effort ruled offside, something which was
to be repeated 10 minutes later.
With 90 minutes on
the clock, Peacehaven grabbed a life-line when
substitute Alan Ndikuriyo drove a free-kick into the
area and fellow substitute Harrison Cullinane
(above) guided his header into the back of the net.
They thought it was
all over, but it wasn't!!. With the game deep into
injury-time, Mile Oak were awarded a hotly disputed
penalty which they duly converted - so denying
Peacehaven the point they will feel they deserved.
