Gargrave AFC

Gargrave Res 1 – 2 Ingrow Res

April 22, 2013

Gargrave were fortunate to be playing in Saturdays semi final league cup clash with Ingrow due to the Barons breaking the 6 game rule with multiple players in the previous round.

Gargrave kicked off and right from the offset the game was open with both defences being stretched. Ingrow looked the more dangerous though forcing good saves from keeper Hudson and they hit a post too. Gargrave had their fair share of possession but didn’t create too many clear cut chances the final ball seemed to let them down. Suprisingly the game was 0-0 at the break.

The second half started much the same as the first with open attacking football being played. Ingrow took the lead early on in the second half when a fierce 30 yard half volley appeared to be saved by the Gargrave keeper but instead of the ball being pushed over the bar it slipped through his fingers and landed in the back of the net. With Gargrave low on confidence they lacked the spark they needed to pick themselves up and then went two nil down when the ingrow forward had all the time in the world to control the ball in the box and volley home into the bottom corner.

With only 15 minutes remaining Gargrave went for it and played 3 at the back with Gaz Lord as an additional midfielder it almost immediately paid dividends when his rasping shot forced a great save from the keeper. Gargrave battled hard and started to show their fighting spirit pressing the Ingrow players high up the pitch. Gargrave scored after a great team move was rounded off by Carl Tetley who lobbed the keeper with an assured finish.

It was all too little too late though and Gargrave crashed out of the league cup….again


Got something to say?
