ST NEOTS TOWN 3 CORBY TOWN 2
IT IS A totally overworked phrase, but this really was a game of two halves.
Corby totally dominated the first 45 minutes and scored twice in three minutes early on with Jordan Crawford cutting in from the left to unleash a right-footed thunderbolt and Ben Diamond adding a second after great play between Crawford and Steven Leslie.
After the break the home side’s counter-punch was swift and lethal. In 12 second-half minutes around the hour they scored three times with Dion Sembie-Ferris beating keeper Sam Wilson to the ball to head home a Scott Sinclair cross after 52 minutes, and then eight minutes later defender Liam McDevitt levelled from a Johnny Herd throw.
What proved to be the winner came from ace marksman Tom Meechan after 64 minutes – his sixth goal in ten games.
Corby’s hopes of a late leveller were dashed when they were reduced to ten men as they lost Connor Kennedy to a second yellow card. Wilson made two outstanding saves to deny Meechan and Sinclair.
Corby then felt they should have had a late penalty, but Crawford was booked for simulation.
