Gargrave AFC

Gargrave Reserves 3 – 3 Rolls Royce Reserves

April 3, 2011

Gargrave began the game in confident mode after an excellent performance against Crosshills mid week. Jonathan Chapman came close in the first minutes of the game with a long low shot.Rolls rattled the bar and a corner from Gargrave carried by the wind also hit the bar. Neat passing through to Chapman saw his shot hit the back of the net for Gargrave to take a 1-0 lead on the half hour mark. Harry Thompson weaved his way into the box and placed his shot into the corner of the net for the hosts to enjoy a 2-0 lead at the break. Rolls just minutes into the second half pulled the score back to 2-1. A lob from Gargrave was just short but Rolls made no mistake when they levelled. A defensive error gifted Rolls their third and took them into the lead. Gargrave continued to push for goal spurred on by the hard working Jonathan Chapman who was rewarded for his endeavours when he brought the score back to 3 all. Gargrave almost claimed the winner with a lobbed shot which went just inches wide but a share of the points was welcome.
