SIX-GOAL THRILLER: Wealdstone battle for point against Sutton United

 Published on: 22nd November 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Wealdstone F.C

Wealdstone and Sutton United shared the spoils after a six-goal thriller in the National League in a result that sees the Stones stay in fourth place.

The visitors, Sutton, took an early two-goal lead before Wealdstone managed to turn the game around completely, before a late equaliser meant both sides would add just the point to their season’s tally.

Sutton United took the lead inside the first three minutes after Beautyman’s free-kick was parried by goalkeeper Harry Isted straight into the path of Isaac Olaofe, who tapped home with ease.

The visitors doubled their advantage just eight minutes later after Isted’s attempted clearance bounced off the approaching Omar Bugiel and into the net.

Wealdstone went into the half-time break two goals down but managed to start the second in the perfect way after a cross was played in towards Danny Parish who headed the ball back to Ross Lafayette who had the goal at his mercy and halved Wealdstone’s deficit.

Lafayette scored the equaliser on the 65th minute after a corner was played in towards him and he managed to bundle the ball into the back of the net.

Wealdstone were pressing for the winner in the final stages of the game and they thought they had it after Benyu’s lay-off allowed Jacob Mendy to strike from distance and the effort beat the keeper to complete the turnaround.

However, in the final minute of the game, Sutton had their chance to equalise after a corner was drifted in towards the six-yard box and the ball was headed down towards Craig Eastmond who stabbed the ball home to snatch a point for the visitors.

The result leaves the Stones in fourth place in the National League, level on points with their opponents, who have played two games less.

Next up for Wealdstone is a trip to Notts County on Friday night.
