Squidge rescues a point for Boro

Points shared in 6 goal thriller

This week we entertained our closest rivals from last season Immingham Town and with Lucarly's waterlogged the game was switched to Wintringham School taking away any home advantage Boro may have had. Manager Scott decided to stick with a similar team to last week, Glover replacing Flello and Tice starting in goal with Krawczyk away the only noticeable changes.
The game got under way and did not start well for Boro, Immingham quicker to everything in the opening exchanges and they deservedly took the lead, good play down the right wing and the ball was cut back to the Immingham scorer who hit it first time and beat Harrison Tice via a deflection. 0-1 6 mins. Moments later Immingham scored again but this effort was disallowed due to an offside in the build up. To be fair it was all Immingham for the first 30 minutes apart from the rare Boro attack and only Tice in goal saved Boro. Boro finally woke up and started to get into the game and felt they should have had a penalty in the 42nd minute, right back Charlie Glover getting into the Immingham penalty area and as he tried to turn his heal was clipped and he went down, but the referee Ian Brace was having non of it and waved play on, (he did admit after the game his mate who was watching told him he got that one wrong). Half Time 0-1.
Manager Scott was not a happy man and made changes bringing Niall Jackson and Lewis Flello on for Stark and Peart, he also changed the formation. The second half started and Boro conceded again in the 48th minute, a Boro defender was caught on the ball (Boro players claiming a foul) and Immingham ran at the Boro goal 3 on 1 leaving Tice no chance. 0-2 48 mins. Boro now kicked into gear again and Jack Wilson was unlucky to see his 40 yard effort rattle the Immingham cross bar, but he did not have to wait long to get his goal, a ball into the path of Wilson from Bradley Elliott saw him score with a strike across the Immingham keeper and into the bottom corner. 1-2 62mins. Boro added a second in the 74th minute, this time it was Wilson who slipped the ball to Elliott who took everyone by surprize as he lofted the ball over the keeper and into the net (it did look like a cross but Brad assures us it was a shot). 2-2 74 mins. Boro now looked in control and pressed to win the game but Immingham regained the lead scoring a scrappy goal on a now rare attack in the 82nd minute. 2-3 82mins. Boro where forced into 2 subs due to injury's James Bryant and Ben Thompson coming on for Nicholson and Glover and it was the former Bryant who thought he had got Boro level, throwing himself at the ball as it was crossed in only to miss it with his head by mm's with the empty net at his mercy with 2 minutes left. And as the game looked lost with 1 last attack Ben Thompson hit a long ball forward which Paul Richardson gambled on and broke free, it felt like forever as the ball left his foot and hit the back of the net to level the game and with that the final whistle was blown and the Boro players and coaches celebrated rescuing a point. 3-3- 90mins.
This weeks Lucarly's Man of the Match went to keeper Harrison Tice who at times kept Boro in the game.
So now my thoughts, bad start to the game, poor pitch on a slope and against a slight wind Boro struggled, the formation did not work and Immingham over loaded the wings especially down the right. Manager Scott at half time made the changes and it worked. Not saying players where bad in the first half as in the last 15 of it Boro bossed it, but Immingham threw everything at Boro in the first 45, I think hoping to get a lead and hold onto it and it nearly worked for them. The referee admitting after the game he got the penalty wrong was a kick in the teeth, if it was 1-1 at half time ( if we had scored it ) I'm sure Boro would have steam rolled the second half. But that is football and we move on.
Next up for Boro a trip down the coast to North Somercotes, hopefully if you have nothing better to do on Saturday afternoon why not pop down and give the lads a watch, 2:00 kick off on the village playing field. #OneBoro
