AFC Hayes opening game of new season at Cove ends in 3-3 draw
By Barry Stone
The Brook conceded an equalizer in the 87th minute to draw their opening match of the 2019/2020 season.
A disappointing result for the Brook as they fought back from a goal down in the 9th minute to lead 2-1 at half time then 3-2 with only 3 minutes of normal time remaining only to concede the equalizer from another set piece.
On a sun dried bumpy pitch which made ball control difficult for both sides the Brook failed to hold onto a 3-2 lead with only 3 minutes remaining.
The Brook found the early part of the match difficult as they failed to come to terms with a bumpy pitch & fell behind on 9 minutes when a failure to control the ball led to a foul about 18 yards out.A poorly constructed wall allowed Cove's Ross Cook to fire the kick into the bottom left hand corner of the net.1-0
