Town lose 3-4 to AFC Darwen
FT Ashton Town 3 AFC Darwen 4
Wow. What a crazy game that was., and even when I write this, I actually dont really know what happened, nor how to explain it ??
The first half produced 6 goals in 35minutes, 7 in total by the final whistle, and thats 23 in the last 4 games ...
Todays game was unfortunately lost in a crazy first 15 minutes that seen us go behind by 2 goals, both scored by the impressive Nathan Pond, who went on to score a first half hat trick.
Town got back in the game through great work from Dylan Glass who set up Jason Carey, then Carey himself slotting in a penalty, and then Matty Johnson getting a touch that flicked over the Darwen keeper.
The second half didnt bring as much entertainment as in goals, but certainly did within the 45 minutes.
The game livened up and got heated at times, and Town had some great chances, Luke Edwards forcing a great save from the Darwen keeper, and Dylan Glass hitting the post.
What was the winning goal came from a great counter attack with Daniel Taylor heading home, following great work from their left winger.
It was just not to be, and we ended the game with 10 men following a second yellow for Alex Noonan, and Town keeper Tom Goodwin even attempting an overhead kick to level the game..
Onwards to Tuesday and Nelson at home..
