Lympstone net last minute goal to bag point at Wellington.

A last minute equaliser meant that Lympstone secured a 2-2 draw in their latest outing.

Lympstone were in the strange position on Saturday of travelling into Somerset to visit Wellington to play a Fresha Devon and Exeter League game.

The hosts were a well drilled outfit and had the better of the early exchanges, but couldn’t break the Stones defence down.

The first half was far from pretty with both teams battling hard to try to take an advantage, but to no avail half-time duly arrived without a goal.

The home side used the advantage of a significant slope and took an early second half lead.

Lympstone responded well, but that slope continued to aid the hoe cause and, despite some great saves from goalkeeper Scotty Clayton, the Lympets fell two down. The East Devon side dug deep and Jeff Dorman (from the team sponsors Dormans Estate Agents) bundled the ball home to set up a frenetic finish.

With the clock ticking down Adam Saunders broke clear only to be denied by a splendid save by the home keeper. However, the ball was not cleared and, in the ensuing scramble Mark Dunne prodded the ball home with almost the last kick of the game!
