Buckley Town draw against Guilsfield Fc

Buckley dominate second half and the crossbar prevents the Bucks getting three points

On a sunny afternoon at the Globe Buckley played host to mid Wales side Guilsfield, and both teams tried to play passing football. Guilsfield had the edge early on but Buckley held firm until being undone by a well worked free kick, that gave Guilsfield a 1 nil lead midway through the first half. A long throw in from Chris Cathral of Guilsfield caused problems for Buckley, and hard working Mike Thompson for Buckley troubled the Guilsfield defenders, but neither team could stamp their authority on the match and it remained 1 nil to Guilsfield at halftime.

Buckley levelled on 55 minutes when Jacob Evans tenaciously kept possession of the ball in the penalty area and twisted and turned as he dummied three defenders, and just when the chance appeared lost he wriggled free and calmly rolled the ball into the Guilsfield net to make it 1-1.

On 65 minutes Phil Molyneaux, for Buckley, was replaced by substitute Andy Watkins. Buckley defender Joel Haack found space in the Guilsfield penalty area but placed his header wide. On 78 minutes Coery Scarisbrick thought he had scored for Buckley with a neat lob over the goalkeeper, but was ruled offside. A minute later Buckley called for a penalty when Jacob Evans was heavily tackled, but the referee waved play on.

Buckley led by captain Mike Cronshaw had the better of the second half and made several chances to take the lead.
On 85 minutes Guilsfield looked certain to score but missed their chance and then Buckley had a free kick which struck the top of the post and bounced clear. In the final minutes Jacob Evans, for Buckley found space in front of goal with a golden chance to score but could only tap the ball into the Guilsfield goalkeepers gloves.

9th placed Guilsfield will be pleased to draw against a hardworking Buckley team that again had enough chances to take maximum points, but remain precariously in 15th place.
