East Harling 2-3 Poringland Wanderers
The first team entertained high flying Poringland Wanderers in the last 16 of the league cup looking to continue their recent good form.
The game got off to a frantic start with both teams trying to stamp their authority on the game.
The home side nearly got their noses in front when a Durrant headed clearance found Webb through on goal but he was denied by good goalkeeping.
Drama then followed as Webb was fouled in the area but Bareham unfortunately saw his spot kick saved.
Things went from bad to worse for the hosts as a hopeful cross was misjudged by Woodcock in the home goal as the ball slipped through his grasp and into the net for 0-1.
It wouldn’t keep the home side down for long as a Bareham throw was flicked on by Barnett into the path of Webb who finished neatly into the bottom corner for 1-1.
Bray then saw a powerful strike whistle just past the post and a Senior run and cross was cut out very bravely in the six yard box as the greens pushed to go ahead.
They were then to go behind as a precise ball found the well timed run and was excellently finished by the visitors to take the lead again.
Half time saw the home side make a change with Smith coming on in place of Barnett.
The second half was to be a far better performance by the home side and they were unlucky not to level when Smith went round the keeper and squared to Webb but the big front man unfortunately couldn’t judge the bounce and missed from a few yards.
He then made up for his earlier miss when Bray picked him out in the box to rise high and loop his header over the visiting keeper for 2-2.
Bray then saw his cross find Webb but from a couple of yards out he got too much on his header which went over the bar.
Handball claims were then waved away before the keeper brilliantly intercepted as Webb attempted to go round him.
Watling then replaced Bareham.
Moments later with the game destined for extra time, a clearance found the visiting striker running towards goal who unleashed a perfect curling strike in off the bar from 30 yards.
Underwood then came on in place of Hobley as the home side went all out attack with minutes to go.
More chances were to come as Bareham saw a free kick well saved before Underwood went clean through but couldn’t get enough on his strike under pressure from several defenders.
A better chance came moments later when Bareham bundled his way to goal but his strike from 8 yards went just over as the away side clung on to victory despite seeing a man sent off for a horrifying challenge on Durrant in the final seconds which luckily saw the captain get up unscathed somehow.
A game full of drama but without reward for the home side who next face Holt United away in the Norfolk Junior Cup next weekend.
