Alton 2 - 2 Colliers Wood United

Match report by Dave Hawtin

The first half was a somewhat subdued contest. Mees in the home goal palmed away a vicious shot from distance that looked goal bound on a rare occasion that a goal was threatened, but the the deadlock was broken on 41 minutes when the visitors took the lead. A corner delivered from the right was not dealt with and a fortuitous header found its way into an unguarded net. The home side should have equalised right on half time when Perkins found himself free on goal but was unable to beat the keeper who blocked with his legs. Alton started the second half quickly and immediately equalised. A shot from 18 yards was only blocked as far as Trevor Caborn and he stepped inside his marker and shot home. Well on top now, Louis Russell found himself free on goal but the keeper once again blocked. Suddenly the home side found themselves a goal behind again. Mees' attempted clearance was intercepted and quickly moved to the striker for a simple finish. The game opened up and Alton gained territory as they looked again to get back in the game. On 85 minutes they were level again a corner delivered by Matt Benham caused chaos on the goal line before finally being forced home by a Refell/Sanderson combination. With the visitors back pedalling and injury time imminent another corner led to a push on Sanderson; penalty Alton. Sadly Siph Mdlalose’s spot kicked was comfortably saved by the keeper and the points were shared. The home side had done more than enough to take all three.

Alton travel to Frimley Green tomorrow night (Tuesday) for the Quater Final of the Aldershot Senior Cup. 19:45 kick off.
