Hoveton Wherryman 0-0 East Harling …

Hoveton Wherryman 0-0 East Harling
The first team travelled to the home of league leaders Hoveton Wherryman on Saturday looking to avenge the 1-3 defeat suffered only the weekend before but knew it would be tough with the home side having not been defeated since November.
The away side welcomed back Jake Scent into the starting line-up and there was also a place in the squad for Luke Holland as the only substitute after his break from university.
The visitors got off to a very bright start with Durrant heading a Scent delivery wide before Johnson was just short of reaching a Barnett through ball.
Johnson then went close again after an expert Bareham flick on but the front man was adjudged to have fouled a defender en route to goal.
Another Scent delivery caused carnage in the home box but somehow the ball was cleared from inside the six yard box with bodies flying in from all angles.
Jake Scent then suffered a minor injury and had to be replaced by Holland.
Woodcock was then called into action by claiming one of many hopeful long balls into the visiting penalty area but all game he was protected by the strong back four of Allin, Laws, Holland and the skipper Durrant.
Then the closest yet!! Bareham bundled his way into a one on one with the home keeper but his finish was found wanting as the opening goal yet again evaded the dominant visitors.
Tarft and Allin then linked up brilliantly to create a superb chance for Senior but the fleet footed winger shot tamely at goal with only two defenders on the line and keeper out of the picture.
The second half began in similar circumstances with Johnson breaking clear but his cross was misjudged and Bareham saw a powerful strike well blocked.
The game was then turned scrappy with a number of niggley incidents causing a lot of stoppages to the game.
The home sides keeper was then dealt a lifeline by avoiding a red card after appearing to headbutt Johnson off the ball.
Senior then broke on the defence but was halted in his tracks by another foul. Scent stood over the dead ball but shot to straight and was denied by a comfortable save.
Controversy then came as the game threatened to boil over. Bareham was stamped on by a home midfielder and was rightly shown a red card by the referee and a penalty was awarded.
As Bareham stepped up to take, the referee was called over by the home sides linesman and after a short discussion somehow the ball was taken off the spot and the home side had a free kick instead.
The final whistle was blown and the visitors had shocked the hosts but deserved so much more than the solitary point they took back to Church Road.
A performance to be proud of but we now move onto the next game as we look to finish as high up the table as possible.
