Croft Blue 2-2 HIghworth Town 2

Croft’s title hopes suffered a setback as they were pegged back after being two goals in front against a plucky Highworth team. The home team started on the front foot and were deservedly a goal up when Top scorer Bikash Limbu strolled through the centre to finish easily. He soon added a second after some good work from Luca Colucci. If the boys has managed to hold out until half time, its fair to think the outcome may’ve been different. But they conceded only seconds before the whistle. to go in 2-1 up. The second half saw Colucci hit the bar and other chances go, and the boys were soon punished as the Highworth number 9 pounced on a rebound after a good first save by Tyler Affleck. The boys pushed for a winner and were denied a late penalty call, but eventually a draw was probably a fair result.. just. Still a long way to go as the lads head for their Christmas break, looking forward to the second half of the season.
