Pershore fall to last-minute winner from leaders in thriller
12:00pm Tuesday 15th April 2014 in Sport
AN entertaining game at Pershore Town's Winstanley and Co King George V Stadium saw leaders Brocton triumph 4-3 with a last-minute winner.
The early exchanges saw Brocton create half-chances before going ahead after 25 minutes with a chip.
But Pershore scored twice at the end of the first-half, equalising with a fine left-footed strike from just outside the box by Scott Walsh.
Town took the lead several minutes later when Mark Owen brought the ball down on his chest and confidently finished with his left foot.
Owen completed his brace in the first minute of the second-half from close range.
But Brocton netted in the 65th minute with a shot from the edge of the area and equalised soon after with a header at the back post.
It was now one-way traffic but Pershore seemed to be hanging on when Brocton hit the post in the dying moments.
However, the visitors struck in the last minute with a well-placed finish giving them all three points.
Pershore's final home league game of the season is against Littleton next Monday after visiting Alvis on Saturday (both 3pm).
