East Harling 2-1 Holt Utd …

East Harling 2-1 Holt Utd
The first team entertained 3rd placed Holt Utd at Church Road on Saturday for the 3rd time this season having already beaten the visitors twice at Kelling Road in the league then Norfolk Junior Cup.
Team news saw captain Harley Durrant ruled out with a head injury suffered the week before with Bareham coming into his place and taking the armband for the day. Bray returned from injury in place of The unavailable Tarft and there was a place on the bench for Morris after completing his 3 game suspension.
The home side got off to a good start when Scent rattled the cross bar from a 25 yard free kick.
Webb began to cause the visiting defence some big problems and had the ball in the net with a very neat finish but was controversially ruled to be offside by a late flag.
Moments later Webb found himself through on goal but was met by yet another tight offside call.
Against the run of play the visitors then took the lead when Laws was adjudged to have hauled down on the edge of the box, the free kick was slammed into the top corner from all of 25 yards.
Despite a lot of possession the home side were struggling to produce a final product.
After some stern half time words the Greens came out with a lot more purpose.
Saint and Morris then replaced Dolan and Hobley.
They were soon level when a Scent corner was flicked on at the near post by Barnett for Webb to steal in and put the ball high into the net.
Great work from Senior and Webb then played in Barnett one on one with the keeper but the midfielders finish was far too straight and easily saved.
With time ticking by, Barnett was replaced by Ramsbotham as the Greens went more attacking to find a winner. They didn’t have to wait long as Morris sent Saint away down the line to pull back and Webb was waiting to brilliantly control and poke the ball in via the foot of the post.
Ramsbotham nearly got on the scoresheet himself but was superbly denied by a brave block by a visiting defender.
The whistle was blown and the Greens had earned a valuable three points.
Well done all and special mention for the defenders who never really gave the away side a sniff all game.
