FULL TIME: Wealdstone get a point after four goal thriller

 Published on: 2nd November 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Wealdstone F.C

Wealdstone let a two-goal lead slip in a game of two halves against Dorking Wanderers FC this afternoon. 

A Noel-Williams double in the first half was cancelled out by two second half goals for the home side. 

The Stones started the game off well and looked dangerous every time they went forward.

An early chance was nearly converted by Noel-Williams after some great play on the wing by Lewis saw him whip a dangerous cross in, but the keeper dealt with it. 

Four minutes later and nine minutes on the clock, it was that man again, but this time Noel-Williams made it count by heading home from six yards from an inch-perfect free kick by Green. 0-1. 

Dorking defenders were struggling to handle the goal scorer who found some space in the box and his shot was smartly saved by the keeper. 

It was a dominant first 25 minutes for Wealdstone with Green, Lewis and Noel-Williams creating chance after chance. 

After the home side managed to get a foot in the game, Noel-Williams popped up again on 45 minutes and made it two nil after slotting home a low cross from Lewis. 

Noel-Williams came close to continuing his first half dominance early in the second half after breaking through the middle, but his shot crept wide. 

A goal out of nowhere for the home side as Barham chipped the ball over the keeper’s head to find the back of the net. 1-2. 

The Stones nearly bounced straight back but a defender cleared Noel-Williams’ header off the line to prevent the forward getting his hattrick. 

A stunning strike into the top corner from McShane on the 73rd minute levelled the score.

Wealdstone will feel unfortunate to not go home with all three points. 

Wealdstone play Eastbourne Borough on Saturday, November 9.
