St Albans 3 : Hungerford 2

 

A late goal for St Albans broke Hungerford hearts in a thrilling encounter on the opening day at Clarence Park. Ramone Rose gave Hungerford an early lead when he smashed the ball in on the third minute. Captain David Noble drove wide for the hosts before Tom Bender missed a glorious chance from close range.  However the hosts were to get a fortuitous equaliser when goalkeeper Jokull Andresson, pursued by Ralston Gabriel, dropped the ball into the attacker’s path to score from an acute angle. St Albans then started to apply the pressure to the Crusaders backline but they held on. Solomon Sambou curled over and Ben Herd had two similar opportunities which he failed to convert.

Just five minutes after the restart Alfy Whittingham was needlessly pushed in the back giving the visitors a penalty which Harvey Bradbury coolly converted into the corner. Alex Fragata had opportunities spurned on the counter attack as his pace left the hosts backline for dead. However at 81 minutes the Saints equalised when a fantastic header smashed off the crossbar before the ball found its way over to Gabriel to get his second of the match. The debut striker then could have had a hat trick when played through, but his weak effort was easy for the goalkeeper to save. Sam Merson looked to have wasted the last chance of the match for the hosts when he volleyed over once the ball had fallen to his feet inside the penalty box.  But there was still time for late drama as the hosts stole it at the end through Dave Diedhiou.
