Stones 1 Hamlet 1
Great contest, as per usual when these two sides meet. They really battered us for spells in each half, but our defence generally stood firm with Phil Wilson outstanding in goal. Hamlet took the lead with a well crafted goal; Carew did well to work a shooting chance following a corner, with a stunning shot from a tight angle that the keeper could only push away and as the home defence pushed up Vidal chipped a wonderful ball over the top from the edge of the box for Forbes to drift through and head wide of the keeper. Maidstone's passing and movement going forward really stretched us at the back on a number of occasions and eventually we cracked as the equaliser was knocked in from close range on the hour. Disaster seemed to strike with ten minutes to go when Wilson just reached a loose ball inside the box in time to push it to safety, only for the ref to pull play back and penalise Forbes for an earlier challenge, awarding a penalty and showing our captain a red card. However Wilson plunged to his right to batter away the penalty kick, and this seemed to give Hamlet fresh momentum. With Maidstone looking desperate for a winner Hamlet began to look increasingly dangerous on the attack. Clunis hit the post from close range and had another effort hacked off the line by a defender following a brilliant run, going past his man on the outside and shooting across the keeper.
Team 94-2-3-1): Wilson - Hibbert, Forbes(c), Pinnock, Shaw - Carew, Samuels - Clunis, James, Vidal - Koroma.
Subs: Jarrett (for James), Kamara (for Vidal), Boyle (for Koroma), I.Mansaray, Graham (not used).
