Garstang

 

Tonight saw Wrens take on Garstang for the first of two games between the clubs in six days. Whilst Wrens were looking to overhaul Fleetwood Hesketh for the coveted runners up slot, Garstang aren't safe yet from relegation after being deducted 3pts.

 

The game started badly for the home side as Garstang took the lead on 12 minutes and left Wrens chasing the match with few chances being taken despite top scorer Ric Seear being joined up front by leading reserve scorers Steve Creelman and Lee Tobin. In fact it wasn't until the match was 35 minutes old that Wrens troubled the scorers as Ric Seear converted the 1st of the matches 3 penalties. Encouraged by this Steve Creelman then gave Wrens the lead on 41 minutes to send Wrens into the interval 2 - 1 up.

 

At the start of the 2nd half Wrens weathered the storm for the first 20 minutes until Garstang equalised with a penalty on 65 minutes. The visitors then went 3 - 2 in front on 69 minutes forcing Wrens to take control of the game in order to salvage much needed points. On 77 minutes up popped Ric Seear again with his 2nd penalty of the night to pull the sides level at 3 - 3.

 

As the match entered stoppage time the home side were fortunate not to concede a 4th as the ball hit the woodwork and stay in play as Wrens keeper appeared to have been well beaten. The draw still sees Wrens 4 points adrift of 2nd placed Fleetwood Hesketh with 6 games to play.

 

Saturday sees us entertain Crooklands Casuals with a 3pm kick off.
