GOAL 1-1 It looked like Smithswood had weathered the storm but poor marking and letting a long ball bounce in the area was their undoing and there striker pounced to make it 1-1
Ryder made a double substitution with Mayers and Hession replacing Harris and Wall as he tried to to get the winner with some fresh legs in the final third of the pitch. Straight away Mayers was in the thick of the action and the two subs linked perfectly as he played in Hession whose first touch just let him down, he was almost in.
