Ryman Isthmian South – Green Lions held
Wednesday 2nd October 2013, 12:30PM BST.
IT MAY have ended their winning league run, but for Guernsey FC, this draw will still seem very much like a point gained rather than two lost after this 2-2 draw.
Because on an entertaining night at Imperial Fields, the Green Lions conducted something resembling a smash-and-grab raid in the first half to get the goals that would eventually see them rise to fifth in the table.
How they went into the interval against an excellent Tooting & Mitcham side 2-1 to the good is anybody’s guess, as the hosts had enough chances in that time to win the game and then declare.
As it was, they will be kicking themselves that they didn’t stop GFC moving to six games unbeaten, as they rattled the woodwork three times and missed a hatful of other gilt-edged chances.
They were made to pay by GFC’s top two all-time scorers in Dom Heaume and Ross Allen, with a quick double-strike just before half-time that turned around Tinashe Nkoma’s earlier goal.
