Scorers: Haswell and Edmunds
Ripon were back in league action this week after a week off due to a bye in the County cup.
The 1st half was pretty even, Edmunds having the best chance for Ripon but he shot over the bar. Aberfords best chance was saved by Ripon's debutant in goal, Matt Shaw. HT 0-0
Ripon conceded 1st in the 2nd half, conceding on the break, questions around offside but Aberfords striker finished well. Ripon responded well and got their 1st through Adam Haswell, good work down the left saw him finish the ball into the box. Ripon took the lead again good work down the left which saw Edmunds finish from close range! 2-1.
As the game went into the last 25 mins Woodbridge and Howes were replaced by Robinson and Lefevre. The referee had started to make some weird decisions, a clash of heads resulted in a free kick to Aberford which came to nothing.
Into the last minute and Ripon still led the game, a throw in was conceded near the corner flag but instead of the ref giving a throw he let a corner be taken. Aberford put the ball in and the shot towards goal was cleared off the line....by Robinsons hand, penalty, Red card!!! Aberford scored the penalty and the final whistle blew.
Aberford will no doubt be happy with a point at the death but another 2 points dropped. The lads but a great shift in and we need to take the performance into next week and build on it.
Team: Shaw, Gracey, Barker, Mason, Clarke, Spence, Woodbridge, Fox, Howes, Haswell, Edmunds
