Stalemate at the Nest
Wick 1 - 1 Frampton Utd
With the pitch looking in excellent condition for mid November, both teams began the game brightly. The first real effort of the game fell to Sam Thomas after 10 mins, when he drew a smart safe from Frampton's keeper, Ryan Madge following a 25 yard drive. Wick then began to apply some pressure and were unlucky not to take the lead 5 mins later when Sam's brother, Joe's shot was blocked on the line with Madge beaten. Sam Thomas was showing signs of breaking the deadlock, and rattled the Frampton upright on 35 mins with a volley and was on target again 2 mins later, but this time his shot was gathered easily by Madge. Frampton's first attempt on the Wick goal came on the stroke of HT when a dangerous cross from the right wing needed Wick's keeper Joe Pople to be alert.
HT Wick 0 - 0 Frampton Utd
Frampton kicked off the second half with the sun lowering on their backs, and started the brighter of the two teams. However, the first effort of the half fell to Wick's Alex Whale whose 25 yard effort just cleared the Frampton cross bar. With the game looking like ending in a draw, Frampton did eventually open the scoring on 75 mins with only their second real shot on target. A defensive splitting ball from the left was met by Sean Lawson whose first time cross was headed in by Ryan Vincent, Frampton's and the league's top goalscorer. After a number of Wick substitutions, Kieron Hutson was allowed time on the ball, but his tame shot was easily saved by Madge. Wick should have levelled on 85 mins but Joe Thomas's point blank shot inside the 6 yard area was blocked by Madge. In the dying minutes, Wick did equalise through Shaun Morris from the penalty spot after Jordan Scott had been brought down.
