Ollerton Out of the Vase After Extra Time Collapse!

A poor period in extra time saw Ollerton dumped out of the FA Vase

Ollerton Town were eliminated from the FA Vase on Saturday afternoon after a terrible period in extra time saw them beaten 5-1 by Long Eaton United in the second qualifying round.
The Town had matched their high-league opposition for the 90 minutes of normal time but a string of errors saw Long Eaton grab four goals with the end score line ultimately being harsh on Ollerton.
It was Long Eaton who opened the scoring, going ahead in the 11th minute. Ashley Grayson spent a loan spell at Ollerton back in 2007-2008 as the Town won the Central Midlands Premier Division and on his return to the club, he punished his former side. A ball from the left found Grayson at the far post and he struck a shot across goal and in off the upright.
Long Eaton's advantage lasted until just before the half hour mark as Ollerton drew level. A corner into the box was parried up in the air by the Long Eaton 'keeper and Aaron Sennett- Neilson was on hand to flick the ball home from only a few yards out.
The Town could have added another goal before half time. Lewis Bingham drilled a shot just wide of the post after going free on the right of the area before Gav King saw his header saved after a fine Jake Tittley delivery.
The second half was a much quieter affair as Ollerton dominated possession but failed to really create too many guilt-edge chances. Long Eaton on the other hand were restricted mainly to shots from distance with Ollerton 'keeper Phil McGann up to the test.
In the last minute of normal time, Ollerton had a chance to win it as 16 year old Aaron Hewitt raced through on goal but the youngster's left footed effort went just wide of the post with Long Eaton breathing a sigh of relief.
That took the game to extra time and from there, it all went wrong for Ollerton.
Six minutes in, Long Eaton retook the lead. Zak Goodson managed to skip clear of an Alex Sennett tackle by the touch line and he ran into the area and fired in off the post.
Seconds later, it was 3-1. Henry Bestwick managed to race clear of the Ollerton back line and his powerful strike went in off the bar.
Long Eaton's fourth came just before half time in extra time. A cross from the right was miskicked by Ollerton's Brandon Shaw and it fell kindly for Goodson who swept home his second of the game from close range.
Ollerton needed nothing short of a miracle in the final fifteen minutes if they were going to take the tie to penalties but in the end, Long Eaton scored again a minute after the restart. Sean Dickinson tripped a visiting player inside the area and Fabian Smith stepped up to convert the spot kick.
