Bar­well top­ple top team in the league

Hinckley Times - - SPORT -

THE game got off to a slow start, with Bar­well’s Tom Bates hav­ing the first chance on 15 min­utes against Shaw Lane writes Luke Paw­ley.

Mid­way through the first half, Jake Heath’s free-kick crashed against the cross­bar to keep the scores level. Michael Townsend and Owen Story also had great chances but the sides went in level at the break.

Shaw Lane were nowhere near their league-lead­ing form through­out the game, and will be dis­ap­pointed with their ef­forts in Le­ices­ter­shire. They suc­cumbed to Bar­well’s per­sis­tent pres­sure on 58 min­utes when Story wrig­gled into the box and the ball fell loose for Matt Sten­son to smash home. The former Le­ices­ter Road striker was a great threat through­out the whole game and took his goal well.

The vis­i­tors upped their game a lit­tle to­wards the end with Chib Chi­lala and Spencer Harris go­ing close, but the home side thor­oughly de­served their vic­tory.

Bar­well: Cas­tle, Tow­ers, Ni­se­vic, Stan­ley, Townsend (c), Julien, Story, Heath, Perry, Sten­son (Seal 84’), Bates (Whit­more 77’)

Un­used subs: Turner, Gilchrist, Had­land. Man of the Match: Matt Sten­son
