Late score draw agony at St Peter's

Cheshire cat and dynamic Newport striker - Reece

Tonight, Newport maintained their unbeaten start in the league with a hard earned 2-2 draw against St Peter's.

St. Peter's clearly had the better opportunities in the first half ,however goalkeeper Richard was yet again outstanding and Jake , playing in defence, was as solid and reliable as ever. Despite substitions , Newport failed to impose themselves and the first half ended 0-0.

In the second half, there were further substitutions with Pete and Lewis making their full league debuts. Both boys made impressive debuts. Newport took the lead early in the second half when their goalkeeper failed to keep out a stinging shot and it trickled over the line. However Newport were soon pegged back by St Peter's to make the score 1-1.

The reds continued to play with more tempo and took the lead with a thrilling individual goal by Reece. The game seemed to be won when St Peter's scored with only 6 seconds remaining on the stop watch. Agony , but overall a fair result for both teams.
