Planters win "Broadland Derby"

Wones and Hipperson beat impresseive Lemmon

Norwich United 2 Wroxham 0
Ryman League North Division
Second half goals from Shaun Wones and Adam Hipperson saw the Planters finish their home programme with an impressive victory despite the best efforts of visiting goalkeeper Harley Lemmon. The youngster, playing just his second game for the Yachtsmen, produced a string of fine saves to help keep the visitors level until 16 minutes before time.
After a quiet opening Adam Hipperson headed over from a right wing cross after 12 minutes.
Andy Wilton did well when a Ben Fowkes bobbling shot diverted and he had to adjust to push the shot around the post.
Jamie Speller saw a long range shot deflected and after good work from Dawid Radomski Matt Brown shot wide.
Ross Gilfedder latched onto a long ball forward but couldn’t get enough elevation on his lob to beat the onrushing Wilton.
Just before the half hour mark Lemmon produced the first of his saves, an excellent stop to deny Radomski’s first time volley, Sam Watts headed over from the resultant corner.
Wilton survived a scary moment when his attempted clearance rebounded back off Ben Lewis but went wide of the post.
The keeper had to be alert twice denying Gilfedder before the break first holding a snap shot then a drive from an acute angle.
The Planters came out much faster after the break and an early driven cross from Christy Finch was just too far ahead of Adam Hipperson.
Lemmon did well to get down to Stewart’s free kick to the near post and then held Finch’s glancing header from a Hipperson cut back.
Sam Watts glanced a header inches wide of the far post before Lemmon once again denied Finch and a minute later turned behind Hipperson’s stinging drive to the near post.
The Planters finally beat Lemmon when the impressive Jamie Speller put Finch away but the striker saw his shot rebound of the post and Liam Jackson, following in, hit his shot against the same upright.
The lead wasn’t long in coming though with Nathan Stewart’s right wing corner finding the head of Shaun Wones who powered his header into the far top corner in the 74th minute.
Hipperson hit his first goal of the year to increase the Planters lead six minutes later, stepping inside a challenge before hitting a tremendous strike that gave Lemmon no chance, the ball coming back off the stanchion with the assistant referee indicating it had crossed the line.
Lemmon wasn’t finished with his goalkeeping heroics however, producing a fine double save to deny Finch and Jackson to round off an excellent performance.
Results elsewhere mean that the Planters play-off hopes are finally over but a fine second half performance rounded off their home season in some style.
