East Coast U15s 2

Horncastle Town U15s 2

A last minute goal from Tom Johnson earned battling Town a point against a much improved East Coast side.

Town ‘keeper Reigan Carlton made some good saves early on and then saw his side take the lead when James Bruntlett chased down a ball from Dan Nixon and scrambled a lay-off to Ryan Brockman, who slotted home.

Town continued to press for the next 10 minutes with crosses from Johnson and Brockman almost leading to goals for Bruntlett and Nixon.

East Coast made the brighter start to the second half and quickly levelled 
after a rare mistake by Carlton.

Town slipped up again to hand the lead to East Coast, losing the ball in the area for East Coast’s winger to tap in.

East Coast’s ‘keeper did well to deny Johnson and Nixon and with Town looking to be heading for defeat, it was Johnson who came to the rescue with a fine finish after good work from Noxon.
