Gargrave AFC 0 – 1 Crosshills FC

October 10, 2011

This was a game when the points were decided by penalties. One scored and one saved! Unfortunately for Gargrave theirs was the latter.

Work commitments meant that regular keeper Sean Kennedy was unavailable again so striker Ben Brown opted to take on his role . Crosshills had the better part of the play for the first fifteen minutes and a good break from the visitors saw Brown tested in goal when he faced a one on one but some brave keeping kept the score at 0-0. Excellent play from Christian Moon gave Matt Brown the chance to open the scoring for the hosts but the shot went wide. Both teams pressed for goal but both defences held firm.

Gargrave were awarded a penalty midway through the second half and Ben Brown changed back to striker role ( or maybe not ) his resulting shot was saved easily by the Crosshills keeper. Gargrave had their chances to take the lead but luck was against them . Simon Boatwright just missed contact with a diving header and the hard working Billy Bolland saw his shot hit the keeper, and then the rebounding shot hit the bar. Crosshills were awarded a penalty and this was well taken and gave Brown no chance in goal. Man of the match for Gargrave was defender Matt Brennand.
