Hullbridge Sports 4 Clapton 4
The Tons came back from 4-1 down with under twenty minutes to go to draw 4-4 and take an unlikely point from an incredible match. It looked good for the out of form hosts, who had lost their three previous games, when Luke Hornsley and Kurtis Clarke had them two goals up in 18 minutes. Clapton responded with a penalty just past the half hour mark but Sports regained their two goal cushion six minutes before half time through Luke Hornsley’s second of the game. When Rory Clark stuck the hosts 4-1 ahead on 67 minutes you would of thought they had the points in the bag. However the Tons didn’t give up and grabbed goals back on 72 minutes and then 87 minutes, the second one a penalty, to see Sports clinging on. They could not hold out as Clapton levelled in stoppage time to gain an unlikely draw. The Tons do drop to 7th though whilst Hullbridge fall out of the top ten and are now 11th.
