East Harling 2-1 Acle United Reserves …

East Harling 2-1 Acle United Reserves
The first team entertained Acle United Reserves at Church Road on Saturday looking to maintain their 100% start to the season.
The game started well for the hosts with Morris picking out the run of new signing Rose who beat his man but was fouled just outside the box.
From the resulting free kick Bareham saw a looping header go well over. It was a sign of intent from the greens that attacked at will for the entire half.
First Rose was denied not once but twice by excellent last ditch tackles before Tarft saw a superb strike fly inches past the post.
Rose then beat two defenders but was denied by some smart goalkeeping, moments later Conroy saw a strike from 20 yards cannon back of the crossbar.
The visitors were struggling to get out of their half as defenders Olpin, Allin, Bareham and Durrant were again looking defensively solid and comfortable. They did have their one shot of the half though as the right winger decided to try and catch Woodcock out from 40 yards but was comfortably dealt with.
Back came the home side and some excellent play between Senior and Allin saw the full back deliver an excellent cross but the ball across the six yard box somehow evaded everyone as the half drew to a close.
A change was made at half time as Rose was withdrawn as a precaution with a minor hamstring complaint and was replaced by the returning Holt.
The second half began much the same as the first half with Senior drilling a cross to the back post but was just too fast for the stretching Holt.
Morris then struck from distance but his effort was comfortably dealt with by the keeper and Tarft skimmed the bar with a sublime effort.
Holt then saw a brilliant half volley somehow creep wide as the clock ticked down.
Then against all odds the visitors took the lead with their second shot of the game. The ref awarded the away side a free kick on the edge of the box that was curled into the top corner giving Woodcock no chance.
The goal gave the away side even more reason to defend deeper and deeper with a lead to protect. Barnett saw a half volley go flying over from 15 yards and the home side saw a run of 8 corners in 6 minutes come and go.
Lawrence then made more changes. Rose came back on for Conroy and Sivier replaced Tarft with Durrant being pushed up front with 15 minutes to go. Denniss also came on in place of Barnett.
Moments later the equaliser…….a corner into the box was met brilliantly by Durrant who beat the keeper to the ball to score with a looping header much to the relief of all at the game.
There was still time to score a winner with the away side really dead on their feet after defending constantly.
A deep cross from Bareham found a melee in the box with the ball falling to substitute Sivier who pulled an excellent ball back for Rose to score from close range in the 92nd minute to spark huge celebrations around the pitch in a memorable 10 minutes at Church Road.
The ref blew for full time and the greens made it 3 wins from 3 games.
Well done all………
