Thetford Rovers res 0-4 East Harling res
The reserves made the short trip to local rivals Thetford Rovers res looking to carry on their good form. The game started at a quick pace with lots of hefty challenges from the outset.Harling started to dominate the ball and create plenty of chances but were unable to find the quality needed in front of goal. Without an appointed referee for the second time in four games, many late challenges were going unpunished making the game very scrappy but Harling continued to try and get the ball down and play football and were finally rewarded midway through the half when a fine ball into the box from Jack Dennis was controlled and finished superbly by Robbie Smith, 0-1. Harling it the post and crossbar several times before half time but it stayed 0-1 until the whistle.The second half followed the same pattern as the first, with Harling playing good football but unable to make their dominance pay. The returning Craig Greenhill was to change that though with a second half hatrick, 2 powerful finishes from inside the box and a looping header rounded the scoring off coming off the underside of the bar. Unfortunately last 15 mins of the game was marred by ugly scenes which resulted in a player from each side sent off, all of which could have been avoided if the Norfolk County FA would appoint referees for local derbies. A big well done to Harling for their performance and how the carried themselves during a difficult fiery game.
