There were mixed fortunes for our three Brigg and district teams in the EC Surfacing Ltd Scunthorpe & District Football League yesterday (Saturday, February 16).
In division one, Briggensians lost 3-1 at home to College Wanderers with Sol Hari scoring for the Brigg team, while Barnetby United drew 2-2 at home to AFC Queensway ( match report below and pictures from Lee Fielden).
In division two, Barnetby United Reserves stay second in the table after a 2-1 win at Crosby Colts Reserves - Kyle Sylvester scoring both Barnetby's goals.
Ben keeps Barnetby in the hunt against AFC Queensway
Ben Hunt hit his 10th goal of the season but it took a bizarre own goal 10 minutes from time for the Railwaymen to get a share of the points.
In a carbon copy of the previous week Barnetby took an early lead when Jack Blendell’s free kick from the left drifted to the far post, where Hunt took ready, aimed and fired the Railwaymen 1-0 up.
Minutes later skipper Joe Scott powered home a header from a corner but the goal was disallowed.
Queensway came into the game and outstanding saves from Dobbs kept Barnetby in it.
Dent deservedly got Queensway's equaliser on the half-hour when he ghosted in to bring his side level.
Both sides traded blows on a bobbly pitch and Queensway looked to have won it when Dale Heseltine nipped in at the far post to put his 2-1 up with 15 minutes left.
Lady Luck, who has been a long lost and absent friend, graced the Railwaymen with her presence with 10 minutes remaining when a 40-yard back pass to the hitherto unruffled Queensway keeper saw him miss it and bring the scores to 2-2.
Skirmishes at both ends resulted in no further addition to the score and both sides settled for a point.
