Saturday, 17 November 2007

Corinths edged out their league rivals after a strong second half display.

Ben Morgan's sixth minute effort from close range had Thrapston in front at the break, but Corinths equalised three minutes after the restart through Andy White after Tony Ielapi and Chris Torrence combined.

Ielapi gave the home side a 65th minute advantage from the penalty spot following a foul on White, but with thirteen minutes remaining Paul Norton squared the tie with a Thrapston equaliser, firing home from distance.

Extra time beckoned but Corinths won the contest with two minutes to spare, Chris Torrence the home matchwinner after a great run from Sam Johnson.

Rothwell: Tom Cross, Jason Singh, Chris Torrence, Andy White, Adam Fitzjohn, Chris Dunn, Lee Deacon, Tom Johnson, Dave Briffa (Scott Sanders), Sam Johnson, Tony Ielapi (Elliott Roberts).

Thrapston: Jon Kyte, Jack Petty (John Caine), Matt Harris, Glenn Turner, Craig Ferguson, Lee Purser, Mark Redding, Glenroy Bell, Ben Morgan, Paul Norton, Jack Wesby (Dan Rogers).
