Southall hold Brook to a 1-1 draw
Despite taking an early lead the Brook were held to a 1-1 draw in a very competitive match by midtable Southall.
A hard competitive game saw a 10th minute goal from Victor Montes earn the Brook a 1-1 draw against local neighbours Southall.
The Brook started the match well & on 10 minutes a Jack Roper pass found George Ademiliyu in space but his shot was well saved by Vickers in the Southall goal. The Brook continued to press & in the 10th minute a 23 yard shot from Victor Montes took a wicked bounce in front of Vickers & flew into the net.0-1
Although Southall came back into the match it was the Brook who were having the better of the half & on 20 minutes Mourad Jarraz's shot was turned round the post for a corner which was comfortably cleared by Southall.HT 0-1
2 minutes into the 2nd half a cross from Montes almost deceived Vickers in the Southall goal but he managed to scramble the ball behind for a corner.
Southall stepped up the tempo & levelled the score in the 50th when Rowan Vine equalized.1-1
The pressure continued & on 54 minutes Brook keeper made a fine save turning the ball round the post for a corner which was cleared.However the Brook appeared to weather the storm & had a great chance to regain the lead on 68 minutes when Jarraz found Nathan Dennis unmarked but his shot was past the upright.
2 minutes later it was Southall's turn to be thwarted by a keeper as Josh Bramwell pulled of a double save to deny Southall.The Brook replaced Craig Ferguson with Gibson Pasma on 73 mins & Nathan Dennis with Matt Kaczmarek on 80 mins but Southall continued to press forward.
On 82 minutes Jack Roper passed to Kildane Tesfu out on the right wing & his cross found Jarraz but his effort was saved.With the game in the 89th minute Josh Bramwell was again the Brook's savior as he pulled off another double save to keep the score all square.FT 1-1
A very exciting game that could have turned either way but unfortunately spoilt by some very petty bookings by a referee well out of his depth.
