SMART STEVENS SAVES CITY
CONCORD RANGERS made a late rally to rescue a point against Oxford City, the hosts having goalkeeper Jack Stevens to thank for a string of tremendous second half saves.
A drab opening 45 minutes was punctuated by half chances, Kyron Farrell’s powerful effort from range the best of a bad bunch, forcing a smart save from Stevens.
City fought back after the break and they took the lead on the hour mark when Rob Sinclair rode a challenge in the middle of the park, playing a one-two with Zac McEachran before finishing from six yards.
Rangers continued trying their luck from range with Femi Akinwande seeing his low, drilled effort tipped around the post.
Substitute Adam Topley produced an even better effort on the volley that Stevens spectacularly tipped over.
The Beach Boys levelled with five minutes left when Amos Nasha pounced on a loose ball for an easy tap in.
Concord should have gone on to win the game an exception Stevens stop denied Ben Greenhalgh in stoppage time. STAR MAN: Jack Stevens (Oxford City) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
