Cohen denies Redbridge with last-minute equaliser

An injury-time strike from Zach Cohen denied Redbridge Jewish Care what would've been their second win of the season following a 3-3 draw with Mill Hill Dons.




Redbridge started the brighter of the two sides and opened the scoring with a stuning 30-yard free-kick from Jimmy Castle.

But, the Dons responded almost instantly as top-scorer Zach Cohen followed in on a rebound from a Harry Moss effort.

The away side then took the lead with a fantastic team move ending with a tidy finish from Isaac Virchis.

It was 2-2 before the break though as a through ball cut through the Dons defence and left Redbridge forward Anthony Cope free to finish off a one-on-one.

The boys from Mill Hill came out much stronger in the second half but couldn't take their chances. And, it looked like they would be made to pay when Ben Nathan grabbed a third, with Dons players appealing for a clear handball from the goal-scorer as he brought the ball under control.

Switching to an all-out attacking formation in response, the away side finally got their second half goal, with Cohen smashing home another good passing move with practically the last kick of the game.

Dons manager Jamie Nagioff told JC Sport: "We let ourselves down a bit today. While I'm delighted with the way we responded to their third goal and the way we kept pushing for an equaliser, we really shouldn't have been in that position in the first place.

"The concentration and tenacity that has been so vital for us in recent weeks just wasn't there today, so we'll need to be much improved for our remaining fixtures."

RJC boss Daniel Jacobs told JC Sport: "It was a really great game of football this morning. We were a little unlucky not to hold on for the win but a superb performance from 1-11 - the boys did everything we asked of them and more."
