Match report

Sway started brightly against the league leaders who boasted an unbeaten record of 5 wins and a draw and nearly went ahead on their first attack when Brockharts cross fizzed across the six yard line ith no one on hand to tap home. On 10 minutes their pressure was rewarded when a neat flick by Juryeff found R.Brading who cleverely beat two defenders before smashing the ball into the roof of the net from the edge of the box. Soon after Brockhart,having been sent clear by by Ritchie was unlucky not to increase the lead when he chiped the keeper only to see his effort cleared by a covering defender. Paulsgrove were always looking dangerous on the break and only excellent keeping by Williamson kept the score.  level when he saved well from Hird when facing a one on one situation. On the half hour Sway increased their lead when following a scramble in the oppositions box the ball broke lose and Brockhart's side foot shot found the bottom corner. Half Time 2-0
In the opening 5 minutes of the restsrt Sway lost Gilbert through injury who had been in commanding form in the heart of the Sway defence along with Churchill. This had a unsettling effect on the Sway defence and Paulsgrove started to look far more menacing on the counter. Play was very much end to end with both sides creating chances in particular Ryan Brading who was giving the visitors defence a torrid time. But it was the visitors who reduced the lead in the 82nd minute when the lively Milroy got in behind the Sway defence and struck a thunderous drive past the helpless Williamson. With the clock ticking down Sway suprisingly continued to press forward and were again caught out in the 92nd minute when Milroy again found himself in the clear and was this time brought down by Williamson and Woodward scored from the resulting penalty. With 5 minutes of injury time time played Godfrey found himself through on goal with only Williamson to beat and made no mistake to score the undeserved winner.
