Juniors Match Report: Harrogate Railway 4 - 2 Pannal Sports
A lovely morning, horrid pitch on a slant!
Pannal lost the toss so defended the downhill, and to their credit took the game to Railway. Matt and Joel were combining well and eventually Joel put Matt through to open the scoring with a nice flick past the goalie 0 - 1. Pannal were coping well uphill, with Archie, Will G and Finlay (Capt) working to feed the wide players. Tom Brett and Chris Douglas were working hard in the midfield and Pannal were looking to increase their advantage.
To some extent Railway scored against the run of play 1-1 before scoring two goals which should have been prevented, one from a corner where no player was on the near post to clear and the other an unchallenged run and shot across the pitch. To their credit Pannal rallied and a great run by Will S to the byline saw him whip in a great cross that James C slotted in at the far post 3 - 2. Punters were seen flocking to William Hill to bet on the home win at this stage! Some good Pannal pressure before the break failed to net an equaliser.
On the downhill after the break Pannal sought to take advantage. Good amounts of possession were effectively snubbed out by a drilled Railway defence. Both ends saw goal mouth drama where the ball failed to go in before Railway scored from a suspiciously offside position. 4 - 2. Joel went close from a free kick and Sam Chambers made a couple of good stops to keep Pannal in the game. Despite some positive attacking through the centre, Pannal could not find the key pass or touch to lessen the deficit, with Will T, Chris D working hard to find an opening.
Final Score 4 - 2 MoM Chris Douglas: Busy and hardworking in the midfield.Support Non League Day by HRFC
