Ha­vant fail to fire in tale of two head­ers

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - CON­CORD RANGERS 1 HA­VANT & WATER­LOOVILLE 1 By Jack Smith

HA­VANT re­main in the top seven but may rue their missed chances af­ter a closely con­tested game be­tween the lowly Beach­boys and vis­it­ing Hawks.

Con­cord were quick off the mark and opened the scor­ing through their cap­tain, Steve Cawley.

A near-post cor­ner was flicked over and be­yond the watch­ful eye of the vis­it­ing goal­keeper Ryan Young into the far cor­ner.

The lead was short­lived though as Ja­son Prior was on hand to head home a solid equaliser when he ar­rived at the back post.

Con­cord wasted a host of chances just be­fore half-time as Khale Da Costa saw his shot blocked af­ter trav­el­ling half the pitch and Jor­dan Cox made a mess of a good op­por­tu­nity.

The home side were much im­proved in the sec­ond half and saw a num­ber of good headed chances miss their tar­get.

As the match en­tered the later stages it could have been any­one’s game as Con­cord pressed for a win­ner late on but were held to a draw.

STAR MAN: Rory Wil­liams (Ha­vant & Water­looville) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
