Late comeback by EDRS Stonegrove

December 17, 2008

A late comeback by EDRS Stonegrove gave them a point in a 3-3 draw with South Mancunians in Division One. Nick Tromans, David Hyman and Darren Coon had put Mancs in the driving seat, and despite a Paul Chilton goal, EDRS were still 3-1 behind with just five minutes remaining. But Phil Silver gave EDRS a lifeline, and the comeback was completed with a last-minute own goal.

In Division 2, Jon Bolle notched four goals as Glenthorne United B recorded a 6-0 demolition of Brady Maccabi B. Gary Swerner and Jon Diamond also found the net.

Temple Fortune B defeated Clayhall B 3-1 with Robert Botkai, Steve Feiger and Graham Meyer scoring for Fortune, Jon Seigal getting Clayhall’s consolation.

Norstar completed a double over Pel City, with all the goals coming in the second half. David Jackson put Norstar ahead soon after the break, and their lead was soon doubled when Pel defender Gary Franklin scored at the wrong end. Despite a quick response in the form of an excellent individual goal by guest Paul Herszaft, Pel weren’t able to get back on level terms and the game finished 2-1 to Norstar.

Results: Division One: South Mancunians 3 EDRS Stonegrove 3
