Gargrave Reserves 4 – 2 Barnoldswick Barons

October 7, 2012

Gargrave hosted Barnoldswick Barons hoping for a better result than the last time the two sides met. Gargrave started slowly and some sloppy defending gave the visitors the lead. Gargrave had good chances in the first half, hard working Will Beckwith danced through the Barons defence and saw his curled shot go just wide. Tom Wood also came close with a header from the edge of the box. The visitors doubled their lead before the break.
Gargrave came out strongly in the second half and their hard work and pressure paid off when Will Beckwith’s shot deflected into the bottom corner. Gargrave piled the pressure on Barons but were then caught on the counter attack and a huge deflection left Gargrave’s keeper with no chance. The goal did not deter Gargrave and they kept on attacking, man of the match Lee Dent was unlucky not to score as he struck a post and Tom Wood came close again when his shot on the turn was well saved by the keeper.
Gargrave were caught out again though on the counter as they pushed more men forward. Versatile Andy Seddon’ had two attempts before finally finding the back of the net to make the final score 4-2. A good team performance from Gargrave in particular centre backs Harry McEneaney and Kristian Hodgson who were both excellent and it could have been a different story if they had converted their chances.
