Garforth Town U19's 2   Glasshoughton Welfare U19's 2

Glasshoughton came away from Garforth with a point after a topsy turvy performance which was well below the high standards set over recent weeks.The visitors started well and should have gone ahead in the first few minutes when Garforth failed to clear their lines and a scramble resulted in a scuffed shot narrowly drifting wide. Almost incessant pressure kept the home side under the hammer and it came as no surprise when Glasshoughton took the lead on 15 minutes. A good passage of play lead to Chris Thomas crossing for 16 year old wing back CALVIN WAITE to power home a header from 12 yards. Garforth looked there for the taking but Glasshoughton relaxed their grip on the game allowing Garforth more possession and they forced a terrific save from Darren Holmes before scoring their equaliser with a well taken goal.Glasshoughton heeded their half time exhortations and they started the second half positively and took the game to Garforth but they could not force a second goal. The home side gained in confidence and gradually asserted themselves and they took the lead on 70 minutes. To their credit Glasshoughton came back strongly in the last 10 minutes - Stu Holmes went close before Andy Seed weaved his way into the box beating three defenders before being brought down for a penalty. STUART HOLMES stepped up to convert the penalty and score a last minute equaliser.For Glasshoughton, it was a case of getting out of jail but credit must go to the side who lacked their recognised strikers and persevered to earn a point. Captain Matt Muscroft led his side with enthusiasm throughout andthere was gritty performances from Chris Walker and Rob Foreman.
