Caister Res 2-2 East Harling …

Caister Res 2-2 East Harling
The first team travelled to the coast to take on a Caister side the greens had already defeated twice this season, once in the league and once in the Norfolk Junior Cup without conceding a goal in either game.
The greens knew this game would be a different story as the Caister 1st team had no fixture for the day they had the advantage of naming three players from the premier division outfit, also the visitors made the journey without top goal scorer Charlie Webb who had fallen foul to a sickness bug.
The away side made a decent start and nearly took the lead when a superb Bray pass picked out Dunkinson but the midfielder headed over from 8 yards when free at the back post.
Dolan then fired harmlessly over from the edge of the box and Senior just failed to get onto a sublime Allin cross in the six yard box.
Up the other end, Woodcock had to be alert to palm over a 30 yard free kick but the greens soon had the breakthrough. Good work from Bray saw the ball fall kindly to Tarft to slot home from 16 yards into the bottom corner.
Played on a very wet and muddy pitch the game was flooded with a lot of hard work from both sides but sadly not enough quality in the final thirds as they went in at half time with the scores at 0-1.
7 minutes into the second half the visitors could have doubled their lead when Senior raced through one on one but saw a superb save deny the winger from doubling the advantage.
The miss proved costly as the hosts drew level soon after when a corner evaded everyone in the box to creep over the line for 1-1.
The away side pushed hard for 10 minutes to retake the lead but were caught on the counter when a midfielder seized on a poor pass to attack at pace and within 4 passes they were ahead when the wide man slammed the ball in at the back post.
Dunkinson was then replaced by Johnson.
Laws entered the fray in place of Dolan as the visitors went on the attack.
They were denied what looked to us a clear penalty when Durrant was taken down on a set piece.
The visitors were now pushing hard for an equaliser and finally got it when a corner was not cleared well and the ball from Durrant found Bareham at the back post to tap the ball in for a late leveller.
The drama was not over there as a goalmouth scramble saw skipper Durrant try hard to send the ball over the line from 3 yards out but somehow the ball went over the bar from the most unlikely blocks on the line.
Allin also nearly snatched a winner but put it wide when stretching at the back post.
Hard luck all and we go again next week when we travel to Acle Utd Reserves in the league looking to get back to winning ways.
