Five minutes in and a soft goal gifted to Harpenden it seemed to go through Bomber’s hands 1-0. The next 20 minutes saw chances go to both sides and the Wares could have easily been level. The Wares pick up the pace and go on a string of attacks but came away with nothing with shots going passed the post, over the bar and the ball running through to the keeper before anyone could get on to it. Wares dominate the latter section of the first half but Harpenden always looked threatening on the break. A long range shot from the home side, hits the bar and a player then swivels to score 2-0. Then a bit of build up play for Andrew Manitou to go on to hit a shot and deflect passed the keeper 2-1. Harpenden hit the bar just before the Wares gain momentum again with Adam feeding Hani to shoot wide and a throw from Hani onto Ethan’s head to go in for 2-2, comeback complete.

HT 2-2

The first 15 minutes of the Second half were all Harpenden’s and it wasn’t until just after that the Wares had there real first good counter attack with Adam crossing the ball only to just evade Hani. Harpenden then continued and were awarded a free kick that was ably assisted by the wind to hit the post. A corner for the Wares saw Ferg’s header also just go past the post. Harpenden then pick up momentum with a cross and a shot that went straight to Bomber before their insistances earned them a goal through a free kick that was headed in 3-2. Alfie and Rio on for Ethan and Luke and seconds later Alfie off wth a blow to the face, on comes Perry. A couple of late flurries weren’t good enough to earn a draw.

FT 3-2
