KEEPERS ON TOP AS TOWN KEEP ON FIGHTING
GOALKEEPER Xavi Comas was Hanwell’s hero as his side shared the spoils with Enfield in a goalless encounter in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup.
In a repeat of the same fixture two seasons ago, the home side had Comas to thank during the first half after the keeper produced several fine saves to deny the sharp-looking visitors.
Enfield started on the front foot after the break, as Ryan Blake punched on a Jack Higgs header to narrowly miss the target.
After Blake squandered a glorious opportunity late on, Comas kept his side in the tie with another superb save to deny Ward-Cochrane. Elsewhere, Colney Heath battled back from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Burgess Hill in a six-goal thriller.
A Pat Harding goal and a brace from Brandon Diau put the visitors in the driving seat.
But Heath sparked a second-half resurgence after a double from Callum Dudrenec and an 84th-minute equaliser from Jack Wood. It was a similar story for AFC Mansfield and Rushall Olympic who are still in the hat after a 0-0 encounter.
Elsewhere, Adrian Stone scored a late minute equaliser as Glebe forced a replay with Phoenix Sports in a great advert for Non-League football.
Jack Hopkins poked the visitors ahead early on to give Phoenix a slender advantage at the break, before Frankie Sawyers doubled the lead from the spot after the re-start.
But Glebe displayed great resilience as Luke Miller reduced Phoenix’s lead to a goal on the 50minute mark, before Stone equalised late on.
Bridport and Cadbury Heath are both still in the hat for Monday's third qualifying round draw after the two teams’ 2-2. They will be joined by
Aylesbury United, who marched into the third round after a 2-1 win over Baldock, as Ryan Kinnane and Tyriq Hunte sent The Ducks through.
