Football: Stowmarket suffer home defeat
Stowmarket Town 0 Whitton United 1
Stowmarket Town's unbeaten home
league record ended today.
With revenge on their minds, Whitton, after their 4-1 Ridgeons League drubbing at home only a few weeks ago against a rampant Stowmarket Town, started the brighter as they hassled and harried the Gold and Black into miss-placed passes and aimless balls. With the home defence under pressure, a poor back pass gave Whitton their first opportunity; but Bugg in the Stow goal was equal to the pace of the midfielder and won the 50-50 battle. Two further high and wide shots and a desperate block from Stow's Ross on 14 minutes, cemented the visitors dominance. As the half wore on, Stow began to get into the game and had their first good chance, a shot from new singing Tournay-Godfrey, after a great through ball by McConnell, went just wide. Whitton looked rattled and began to withdraw to their area. A neat patient long ball from Proctor set Myhill through but he couldn't quite get his shot off. If the half ended in the home teams favour then the majority of the 67 in attendance were pleased to see the second 45 start as brightly. Two successive corners almost broke the deadlock but it was Whitton who took the lead. ANTON CLARKE struck a 35-yard lob volley that Bugg had no chance of back pedalling quick enough to stop going in. Both sides traded punches with the better chances falling to Stow. Myhill dribbled his way through the defence on 80, but with Tournay-Godfrey free to his right, his shot at the keeper was probably the wrong option. So the Greens get their revenge and Stow look to next Saturday for the three points at March Town United that will get their promotion push back on track.
