Hallam defeated in the cold

Hallam FC 0 - 2 Garforth Town

Garforth Town came to Sandygate sitting just above Hallam in the NCEL Premier Division.

Garforth took an early lead when a cross was deflected by a Hallam defender into the Hallam goal.

By half time neither side produced much threat to either goal and with the temperature dropping fast the initial 45 minutes came to a conclusion.

In the second half Hallam was awarded a penalty when Iren Wilson was brough down by the Garforth Keeper. The penalty was lined up by Ash Flynn who duly blasted it over the cross bar.

Garforth were later to be awarded a penalty which was converted. This put Garforth two up and that how the game ended.

Hallam FC lose their winning run to Albion Sports

Hallam FC 1 -2 Albion Sports

Hallam FC were looking for their 12th win on the run and faced Albion Sports who were sitting mid table in the NCEL Premier Division. Albion Sports opened up first when the Albion striker receives the ball in the Hallam box and skips across the box slotting the ball past a diving Hugo Warhurst. 

As the second half commenced Hallam looked a lot brighter with some penetrating runs down both wings, unfortunately no one in the Hallam team was able to find the net. Albion Sports added a second with a well worked move leaving the Hallam defence exposed and allowing the Albion striker to double their score.

Hallam did find a goal through Fearon as he tapped in from close range following a Hallam attack and low cross from the right side. Hallam came close on a number of occasions but the Albion keeper was equal to most shots and prevented an equalizer.

Hallam soon grew into the game and with a ball played out to the left finding Iren Wilson this looked like the opening opportunity. Wilson ran into the Lower Breck box and following an attempted clearance the ball bobbled past the diving keeper leaving Wilson will a seemingly open net, this left the keeper will no other option but to prevent Wilson reaching the ball by bringing him down. Unfortunately, this is not the series of events as viewed by the ref and a penalty was waved away.
