Gargrave Reserves 3 – 3 Barnoldswick Barons FC

January 14, 2012

Barnoldswick Barons had the first shot on goal just two minutes into the opening half but it was well saved by keeper, Martin Eyles. John Beckwith had a chance for Gargrave with a one on one with the keeper but he was a stride too short. A lobbed shot from Beckwith hit the bar and Tom Varey was on hand to tap in the rebound from close range to notch up the first goal on the twenty minute mark. Barons almost levelled with a low crossing shot which went just wide. The second half of play saw both teams eager for a win. The visitors were soon rewarded when they scored an equaliser from close range. Gargrave were quick to reply and Varey scored his second of the game after a goal mouth scramble. Barnoldswick Barons made the score level again at 2-2 after a superb free kick found the back of the net . Pressure was put on both defences with some good attacking play. Man of the match Harry Thompson played a fine lob to Tom Varey who headed the ball into the net to claim his hat trick. A couple of minutes from time a penalty was awarded to the visitors for a hand ball and they made no mistake with the resulting shot to level the scores once more. Final score 3-3.
