Flint remain unbeaten but surrender 100% record

Having created the better chances, Flint will wonder how they didn't come out of this encounter with their 100% record intact.

But having said that, they found themselves 2-1 down midway through the second half, as the Wellmen, despite their limited number of efforts on goal, were more accurate with their finishing.
The early exchanges were typically scrappy, as both sides tried to assert themselves in the frenzied atmosphere of the derby. Having lost their opening two games, Holywell were clearly determined to get something out of this game, and had a robust edge to their performance, resulting in them picking up five bookings during the game, and they were perhaps lucky one of the cards wasn't a straight red for Mathew Kendrick midway through the first period, after his very heavy challenge sparked a brief flashpoint.
Alieu Sheriff, on his first game of the season for the hosts, was full of running, and he created an early half chance for Kyle Smyth, but the Flint forward put his effort into the side netting after Sheriff had pulled the ball back to him.
The Silkmen opened the scoring on 25 minutes following a goalmouth scramble. Sheriff first had a shot and header blocked, before Mark Cadwallader was in the right place at the right time to strike the ball home, and keep up his record of scoring in each one of Flint's games thus far. In the immediate period following the goal, Flint should really have capitalised and increased their lead, as Holywell's composure slipped, and Sheriff and Smyth ran at their defence at will. Unfortunately, for the home side, though, neither of the strikers could finish off their good approach play with a goal.
Early in the second half, Holywell hit back and squared the game. A good cross was not cleared by the Flint defence and found Damien Ketley, who evaded his marker, and scored in the bottom corner to restore parity between the two sides.
Flint were then rocked when Holywell pounced to take the lead after 62 minutes. A Lee Davey corner was headed in by Kendrick at the far post.
Back came Flint, and the in form Cadwallader literally rose to the occasion, with a flying header from a Tom Kemp delivery, to make it 2-2 and set up an exciting last 20 minutes. Neither side, though, were able to breach the defence of the other, although Sheriff did set up Jacques Welsh in the dying stages, but he scuffed his shot when well placed, and so the game ended 2-2.
The sides will meet again next week to determine the bragging rights, in the Nathaniel MG Cup, and this time there will be a definite winner as the tie must be decided on the night.
