Hersh completes Blancos comeback
|3 - 2|
Los Blancos maintained their promotion hopes with Josh Caplin, Josh Gaon and top-scorer Adam Hersh earning them a win in a five-goal thriller against the Cats.
Catford went 2-0 up early on through Adam Luria and Joel Isaacs, but Blancos pulled one back just before the break with a superb 25 yard postage stamp free-kick from Caplin - his first competitive goal for the club.
With the game creeping in to the closing stages, LB got back on level terms with Gaon turning in a Jonny Ison corner with a bullet header at the back post.
With two minutes left on the clock, Hersh secured the three points and a spirited turnaround as he bundled the ball in at the far post after a period of sustained pressure.
Blancos' Joel Minsky told JC Sport: "Whilst far from a vintage performance, we are just happy to come home with the three points as we took to the field with our most depleted squad of the season, with nine defensively minded players. Creativity and inspiration was therefore always going to be short - so the spirit we showed to score three goals without response after going 2 down is pleasing."
Catford captain Adam Luria told JC Sport: "We were cruising to a well deserved victory at 2-1 with 10 minutes to go. Then we missed a penalty and our heads seemed to go. They scored from a corner and then a cross which we had three or four chances to clear.
"We're very disappointed as our keeper never had a save to make yet still we let in three. Hard fought game on a bad pitch and in a gale force wind."
