Heroic Hizer crushes Glenthorne's title dream

JC MSFL DIVISION ONE
CHIGWELL ATHLETIC 2 GLENTHORNE UNITED A 1

Glenthorne United's promotion hopes suffered a blow as they were beaten 2-1 by local rivals Chigwell Athletic at the Met Police Sports Ground.

Two wonder free-kicks from Paul Hizer did the trick for Chigwell.

Fabio Rivieccio scored for Glenthorne who were unable to repeat last week's 2-1 win over Richard Slater's men.

And to make matters worse, Glenthorne had Adam Shafron and Jake Barnett dismissed - both last men on seperate occasions.

Chigwell player-manager Richard Slater told JC Sport: "We were the better side overall and deserved the win. We started the game with quick tempo, but yet again we wernt clinical enough in front of goal for the amount of chances we missed.

"They had a 15-minute spell in second half after their goal, but thankfully we put the game to bed and ended our season with a win."

Glenthorne boss Sam Rosenthal told JC Sport: "We 'can't argue with the sending off's but we still had the chances to win the game, even when we went down to nine men.

"Credit to the boys for a great season, shame that teams pulling out and forfeiting games have decided our fate in the league."
