Beer Albion 4, Exmouth Amateurs 3
Once again this season Ammies had no luck in their away game against Beer, writes Ross England.
Ammies were very much on the defensive in the first half and went into the interval one goal down, despite an outstanding display from keeper Ben Maddison, who looked unbeatable at times
Ammies opened the second half in determined fashion and their outstanding team spirit was very much evident. They soon equalised via Craig Higham and were very much on top. When Jamie Williams added a second they seemed in complete control.
On a rare breakaway Beer scrambled an equaliser, but Ammies stormed back and Billy Gibson converted a Rich Higham cross at the back post, to restore their lead.
With five minutes left, Ammies missed a glorious chance to give them a two goal cushion. The match then turned on a contentious decision with the award of a penalty after the ball, in the process of being cleared away from the goal, hit the arm of another defender, and, to everyone’s surprise the referee awarded a penalty which the home side despatched to level the scores.
An aggrieved Ammies then shipped a fourth goal in the final minute of the game after a goal mouth scramble to succumb to a really undeserving defeat at Furzebrake.
This game illustrated the outstanding team sprite of Ammies and hopefully their luck will change in the coming games.
On Saturday Ammies travel to Thorverton to meet the team that sits immediately above them at the foot of the Fresha League Premier Division table.
