Gingerbreads Gain A Point

4 months ago By Simon Hayes

The Gingerbreads were denied victory when Barwell found an 80th minute equaliser.

Attacking down the slope in the first half, The Gingerbreads dominated the opening half hour. Lee Shaw saw his close range shot go over the bar.

Within a matter of a few minutes, Barwell hit the cross bar 3 times.

Andrew Wright could've put The Gingerbreads ahead at the break but he couldn't get his shot away.

The Gingerbreads went ahead 9 minutes into the second half. Kieran Preston played a long free kick into the box, Curtis Burrows headed down to Jordan Hempenstall who volleyed home.

With Barwell looking to stretch the play and down the slope. The Gingerbreads found themselves defending deep. Kieran Preston found himself the busier keeper and pulled off a number of impressive saves.

With 10 minutes to go Barwell levelled with a shot that crept in at the near post.

The Gingerbreads saw a Jordan Hempenstall header tipped over and a big shout for a penalty waved away.

Results elsewhere mean The Gingerbreads drop to third.
