Hellifield Sports 7 – 6 Gargrave AFC

August 19, 2008

It was goals a plenty in the local derby clash against old rivals Hellifield Sports in the first game of the new season.

Hellifield were quickly out of the blocks with a close range header from Steven Procter. Ben Brown squared the ball for Christian Moon to level. Richard Orme volleyed in Gargraves second from the near post. Carl Stanford was quick to level the scores again with a controlled lob. A quick throw in was neatly flicked on by Ben Brown for Moon to volley home and take the visitors into the lead. Hellifield replied with a cruel deflection. Level pegging again! Ben Brown made no mistake with an angled shot to put Gargrave into a 4-3 lead at half time.

Moon notched up another on the score sheet but Carl Stanford beat the Gargrave defence once more. A goal mouth scramble from the hosts brought the scores level again. Stanford hit a superb shot to put Hellifield back in the driving seat but Gargrave were not finished as their man of the match Christian Moon scored his fourth of the game. The thirteenth and winning goal of the game came from last years premiership player of the year, Carl Stanford.

Final score 7-6 to Hellifield. An entertaining start to the season with end to end action, but it just goes to prove thirteen is lucky for some but unlucky for others!
