Hallam VS North Ferriby

Ferriby Made To Settle For A Point

Ferriby’s trip to Hallam left the visitors frustrated at only coming away with a point from Sandygate.

The first half saw Ferriby Goalkeeper Lewis Exhall pull off two remarkable saves to keep score 0-0. Soon after, a decent cross by Will Annan was almost turned in by Brody Robertson. However, with a lack of quality from both sides, it was inevitable that it remained goalless at half time. 

As the second half began, Ferriby looked the most likely to score and almost did through Tom Corner. The in form striker failed to hit the back of the net though, and it took a moment of quality from Will Annan to break the deadlock. A good punch from the keeper landed at the feet of the former Hull City man, who sidestepped a defender and placed the ball into the net for 1-0 to Ferriby.

Soon after, the physical side to Hallam’s game saw a skirmish on the pitch as tempers rose. Jamie Forrester should have made it 2-0 to the visitors, but the ball somehow stayed out of the Hallam net. 

The hosts nearly equalised not long after, and Lewis Kirk went into the referees notebook for the Villagers. A free kick for Hallam out wide towards the end of the game somehow found the back of the net to make it 1-1, and both teams fought hard to try to win the match.  Jason Mycoe came closest for Ferriby, with his effort coming off the bar to ensure the scores stayed all square at the final whistle.

Although a draw was arguably a fair result, Chris Bolder will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday in the local derby with Hall Road Rangers.
