Corinthians SK 2 Rowley College 3

Mike Ibrahim writes: This game could have gone either way and was finally settled by a last minute goal.
For the first half hour, Rowley enjoyed most of the possession but Corinthians, playing on the break, had the better chances. They opened the scoring with a spectacular shot from outside the penalty area which gave the keeper no chance. Rowley were soon level when Leon Mitchell scored from close range, and they went into the break with a 2-1 lead after Sammy Nelson intercepted a pass and beat the keeper with a low shot.
In the second half, Corinthians really upped their game and it was they who had most of the possession and Rowley were now playing on the break. Corinthians were soon level when Lee in Rowley’s goal was judged to have brought down Che O’Connor in the area. He made no mistake from the penalty spot.
Despite their pressure, Corinthians could not add to their tally and they were made to pay for this later. Rowley, now playing on the break, had one shot which hit the underside of the bar and was headed off the line. Then, in the last move of the game Rowley won a corner which Corinthians failed to clear. Tom Cartin put the loose ball into the net.
A draw might have been a fair result and Corinthians can consider themselves unlucky to have come away with nothing.
