STUTES BAR­REN RUN AT AN END

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTHERN CENTRAL AND - By Ran­dall Butt

HIS­TON fi­nally put an end to their wretched run of 11 home de­feats and five months of mis­ery for their suf­fer­ing sup­port­ers.

Ben Yeomans lashed the ball home in the 37th minute and a pow­er­ful vol­ley from Tommy Wright in the 71st con­firmed their over­all su­pe­ri­or­ity in this base­ment bat­tle.

But the Stutes never man­aged to do things the easy way and there was a white knuckle fin­ish as Petersfield fi­nally be­gan to play af­ter Matt An­drews pulled a goal back from an 81st minute penalty af­ter Billy Conor was brought down.

“This is a huge re­sult for us,” said His­ton boss Lance Key. “It gives us a real chance now to get out of trou­ble.”
