Last gasp point

With their 2 top-scorers required for the 1st team, Thirsk packed central midfield with Ian Foxley, Ben Scaling and Jeremy Barker, keeping Acomb threats under control but finding it tough to create chances at the other end, with only 1 striker. In a scrappy first half, Ian's initial waist high reverse strike was parried back for him to put away a much easier chance giving Thirsk the lead at half time.
The Thirsk defence were busier as the match progressed but despite strenuous efforts, Acomb equalised and then took the lead, just as Thirsk were reduced to 10 men due to the later than expected start time. However, Acomb were tiring and Thirsk were able to take the lead, spreading the ball to Patrick Hunt wide on the right, who was able to drive into the D and pull the ball back into a crowd, where it fell for Ben to score the late equaliser.
Final score: 2-2
Man of the match: Ben Scaling
