The rain had caused the field to be in puddles in certain sections by the scheduled kick-off time approached, and to make matters worse, it also accounted for the late arrival of the referee’s assistants. When they did arrive, the decision was taken to play two halves of 40 minutes each, as kick-off was already 40 minutes late. Forward Evardo Chambers missed two chances, but scored Green Pond’s all-important goal in the 37th minute. With their new coach, the experienced Anthony ‘Follies’ Williams, pulling the strings, Irwin went all out for the equaliser. It came with seconds left, following a mad scramble inside the six-yard box, which resulted in the ball rolling over the goal line and the referee signalling goal, with Green Pond’s goalkeeper, Kemar Ogle, left writhing in pain. He was eventually substituted and the game eventually ended in a 1-1 draw. “This is a work in progress for us,” stated Irwin’s coach Williams. “It was a spirited performance from the players and the wet conditions didn’t make it any better for us.” He added: “There is potential here and we are taking it match by match to see how far we can actually go. But I am all night with this draw, which could have been worse for us.” For Daley, however, it was two points lost. “We should have won the game hands down. We missed several chances to easily secure three points. But I will take this,” he said. Meanwhile, St James High joined Cornwall College at the top of Zone A with three points, after their 3-0 victory over Maldon, who are in last place in the zone. In Zone K, last year’s beaten finalists, Dinthill Technical, began their campaign with a 3-1 win over Bog Walk. Yesterday’s results
