Newport Pagnell Town 2 Blackstones 2
Saturday, 11 August 2007
Newport produced a stunning late fightback to claim a point from this Willen Road contest.
Stones loan signing Ian Cooper gave his side the lead after 21 minutes, and six minutes later Dan Cotton doubled the visitors' advantage.
That's how things stayed until six minutes from time when Peter Rowe broke through and hauled the Swans back into the match with a confident finish. Newport salvaged a point in the last minute through Vinny Shrieves whose left foot shot went in off the far post.
Newport: James Howarth, Mark Bone, Joe Ramscar, John Thorpe, Lee Timsley, Rowland Gavin (Scott Mulkern), Michael Riley (Martin Kelly), Rob Armstrong, Vinny Shrieves, Drew Mitten, Peter Rowe (Joel McCormick).
Blackstones: Ian Flavell, Ross Watson, Trevor Smith (Elton Holmes), Paul Sheehan, Andy Hodges, Andy Boome, Dan Cotton, Luke Kennedy, Ian Cooper (Ashley Stevens), Richie Bond (Liam Palmer), Kevin Ainslie.
