Colony Park Juniors and Parkvale share spoils

Colony Park Juniors stopped a run of defeats when they shared the points with Parkvale 2-2, in a match when they may have won had they not been denied by the woodwork on three occasions.

With a number of regulars missing Tommy Wilson brought a number of young players into the match squad.

In 14 minutes Dorrat outpaced the Parkvale defence and chipped over the oncoming keeper only for his shot to hit the bar.

In 29 minutes Parkvale took the lead when Sim failed to cut out a shot from Wayne BARRON. There were no more chances until 40 minutes when Parkvale had a good chance to extend their lead but the shot was over the bar.

Gradually Park were having the bulk of play and Ness had a shot over the bar in 67 minutes. An equaliser came ten minutes later when Scott CHALMERS got on the end of a good move involving Bonarius and Peden.

Colony continued to press and Reid had a chance in 84 minutes. However a minute later BARRON made a break going past the Colony Park defence and he swept a shot into the corner of the net giving Sim no chance and putting Parkvale into the lead.

With match in the first minute of added time Reid made a great run on the right working his way into the box and then hitting a low cross which Glen GRAFFIN hit into the net from close range to make the final score 2-2.
