Pocklington Town 2nds 4 - 4 Hemingbrough United

03 Nov 2013

Despite MARSHAL TYRES sponsored Pocklington's Reserve side losing a 4-2 lead at home to Hemingbrough last weekend, they should take a lot of heart from a battling performance against a more experienced side that put them under a lot of pressure in the last 20 minutes. An early goal from Chris Murray put Town 1-0 up at half time but despite the visitors levelling early in the second half, Dan O'Connors well struck corner went straight in to restore Towns lead. Dave O'Connor scored to finish off a flowing passing move but Hemingbrough brought it back to 3-2 with 30 minutes still to play. Dave O'Connor thought that he had secured the 3 points when he bagged his second but Hemingbrough refused to give up and piled on the pressure to score two late goals to share the points.
The result keeps Pock in 4th place as they move into East Riding cup action this weekend with an away trip to take on Stirling Wanderers 1sts and with Ted Donkin claiming the MOM award and with other players due back, Pock will travel in a positive frame of mind for a very winnable game.
