Pen­nery pays off for plucky Gosport

The Non-League Football Paper - - SOUTHERN PREMIER SOUTH - By Si­mon Grigor

A LATE goal from the vis­i­tors set­tled a match that could have gone ei­ther way in which the two goal­keep­ers both played ex­cep­tion­ally well.

The vis­i­tors’ Pa­trick O’Fla­herty was first in ac­tion, push­ing away Lewis Cole’s left-footer.

Har­row’s Hafed AlDroubi then joined the party, keep­ing out Ryan Pen­nery’s shot on the turn.

Dean Fen­ton’s header then clipped the cross­bar. A big scram­ble in the Har­row goal­mouth saw two great Har­row blocks be­fore AlDroubi dropped on the ball.

Much of the sec­ond half be­came a per­sonal bat­tle be­tween Har­row’s Ge­orge Moore and O’Fla­herty.

First, Moore an­gled a shot just wide of the far post, be­fore O’Fla­herty kept out his shot af­ter he had run from his own half. A 25yarder was then tipped away. Al-Droubi kept out Alexan­der Lafleur at the far post.

Af­ter 84 min­utes came the game’s only goal. Bradley Stone, only on the pitch five min­utes, broke for­ward, and played the ball in­field to Pen­nery, who fired home from an an­gle.

O’Fla­herty then turned over Moore’s free-kick and Gosport held on as the game wound down.
