South Normanton Ath 2-2 Bentley Colliery

Wednesday 13th October --- CML Premier Division After what we had to endure from the National team against Montenegro, this was a breath of fresh air ...a cracking game played between two committed teams and well worth the £2 entrance fee.

Normo were top of the league at kick off, but with Yorkshire Main winning it meant that they took over top spot on goal difference.

Shiners: O'Hare, Taylor, Summers, Moss, Kelly, Downer, Beecher, Leighton, White, Nicholls, Bowler. Subs : Moran, Henshaw, Phillips

Colls : Smillie, Thackrah, Whinall, Brown, R Smith, Pashley, Ttilley, Jones, Richardson, C. Smith, Lindsay. Subs : C. Pickles, D. Pickles, Allen.
A well observed minutes silence was observed before the kick-off, in memory of Ashley Wakelin who tragically lost his life on Tuesday morning. Ashley was a well liked young man, and he will be sadly missed. Our hearts go out to his family. Normo had a decent chance in the 1st minute, but Andy White failed to convert. Cory Bowler saw his effort on 9 tipped over the bar by Peter Smillie in the Bentley goal, but the keeper was let down by his defence in the 17th minute, when Jay Beecher's ball in from the right found ADAM NICHOLLS unmarked 8 yards from goal, and he wasn't going to miss from there.

The home team doubled their advantage on 33 when Andy White's superb cross field ball picked out CORY BOWLER who smashed the ball past Smillie from the corner of the box. H-T 2-0 Kev sampled the tea at the break, and gave it a big thumbs up - £0.50 and in a proper mug.

It should have been 3-0 just 3 minutes of the second half played, but Andy White could only hit the side netting after he had side-stepped Smillie. Bad miss for the big lad as he had done all the hard work, but failed to find the back of the empty net. Bentley gradually took over the game and almost reduced their arrears after 57 minutes when Michael Pashley's long throw was headed goalwards, but the effort crashed off the post before going safe.
Bentley did indeed reduce their arrears on 72. After an almighty scramble, the ball was hacked into the net from 12 yards out - but I have no idea who got the last touch.

The visitor's comeback was complete with 9 to go - RICK LINDSAY made space for himself down the left before racing into the box and slotting past O'Hare. Great goal and earned the Colls a point their second half display deserved. F-T 2-2
