Beeston OB 2 v 3 AFC Kirk Hallam

By

Spooky performance needed a ghoulish escape

With Halloween just a few days past Kirk Hallam came close to suffering a nightmare first ever loss, to the leagues bottom club Beeston.

Within the opening minutes the home side passed around as good as any team had against us, and they had plenty of joy down their right.
It was one such early attack that saw the opening goal, a deep cross found the forward unmarked on the back post to shock the league leaders.

Kirk Hallam were then soon reduced to having to use 2 subs. First, Wayne Clarke replaced Carl Smith due to injury but shortly after Clarke himself had to be replaced by Darryl Peck when he twisted his ankle.

When the visitors did manage to get any chances they were thwarted by good defensive blocks and a deceivingly agile keeper.

HT 1-0

Wondering whether we had ever actually trailed before at the break before in any game Beeston then became the first ever side to take a two goal lead with intricate movement and a well worked goal ten minutes into the second period.

Kirk Hallam had been posed a problem and with just half an hour left they got a break that proved decisive.

Peck headed on to Andy Flindall who in turn found an advancing Craig Poole to slot home.
Now it was on.... 4 minutes later Poole turned provider with a sweet cross for Steve Gomm to loop his header back over the keeper to level.

Beeston tried to slow the game, the ref ruled out a clear penalty for a defender handling on the floor, and as time ticked away it looked like a draw was on the cards.

Nick Gill though had moved over to the left and his cross was turned in by Vaughn Hallsworth to nick the 3 points with just a few minutes remaining.

FT 2-3
