Wroxham third after fine display
PUBLISHED: 15:17 14 October 2010
Wroxham are third following their 2-1 win at a CRC side now fourth in the table. They travelled without several key players due to injury but produced their best display of the season so far.
They took the game to CRC looking like a team wanting to win the league.
However, CRC’s first attack resulted in a corner in the seventh minute with Shaun Howes clearing off the line for Wroxham.
With Wroxham in control of the game, they forced three consecutive corners on the quarter-hour. Then two CRC corners saw Josh Carus and Danny Self clear off the line.
Wroxham continued to exert pressure and Ross Durrant, who was constantly in the thick of the action, scored the Yachtsmen’s opening goal on 28 minutes.
Wroxham continued to be the stronger team, playing with plenty of confidence but not able to add to their lead.
In the second half, CRC came out strongly and on the 54th minute Gavin Lemmon gave away a penalty. The taker sent Scott Howie the wrong way for 1-1.
Wroxham picked up the pace again to outclass CRC. The Yachstmen were awarded a free-kick just outside the penalty area from which Gav Lemmon struck a stunning shot which was stopped by an equally outstanding save.
In the 60 minute the visitors regained the lead when Durrant poked the ball past the keeper.
CRC struggled to keep in the game, but showed they were still a threat when they smashed the ball over Howie’s bar, and in the last five minutes, Matt Daniels almost gave them a lifeline hitting his own bar, but again Wroxham managed to get the ball clear, inflicting only the second defeat on the home side this season.
