Terrors

1-1

Needham Market

Dines

(1-1)



Honours were even in this entertaining league clash in the first ever meeting between the clubs. Needham Market took the lead in just the second minute when the impressive Sam Nunn headed home from a corner. The remainder of the half saw Tooting dominate Billy Dunn had a fierce low free-kick superbly saved by Danny Gay and the keeper was soon in action again pushing Dan Clements goal-bound effort around the post for a corner.


There was prolonged Tooting pressure with a series of corners which saw the Needham Market goal lead a charmed life. The outstanding Eddie Dines had a shot blocked on the line and Chace O’Neill, Danny Bassett  and Omar Folkes all went so close. Justwhen it looked like we would go through the half without scoring we did in stoppage time Billy Dunn’s excellent corner was headed home at the far post by Eddie Dines.

As the players came out for the second half they were greeted by heavy rain and a thunder storm. The first chance after the break fell to Juevan Spencer who forced a fine stop by substitute goalie Nathan Munson who had replaced the injured Danny Gay. Needham then had a brief period of pressure with RyanGibbs hitting the bar and Jack Simmons lobbing over from close range. Back came the Terrors Chace O’Neill went on a good run and his drive was deflectedjust over and Omar Folkes was through on goal but the keeper was equal to the task.


In the last five minutes the visitors could have stole a victory striking the woodwork and with the last action of the match Tooting custodian Joe Tupper  made a brilliant save to deny Kieran Turner winning it. Summing up an excellent performance from our lads in very tricky conditions and credit to the visitors also who played their part.

Six minutes later Town  scored their third goal   when Hakeem Adelakun’s long range effort curled in.

Tooting  were reduced to ten men seventeen minutes from time when Joe Tupper was adjudged to have handled outside the box and was shown a red card Billy Dunn  donned the keepers jersey. The Terrors nearly got a second goal with  Dan Clements and  Ollie Bennett forcing good stops from home keeper Max Huxter. In the closing stages Billy Dunn made the save of the night to deny Lee Harding.
