Bridlington Sports Club County are still searching for their first win of the season in East Riding County League Premier Division, after surrendering a two-goal lead at Goole United Reserves

Goole United started strongly and put Sports Club under pressure but never looked like they were going to get the better of a organised and disciplined defence.

The visitors grew into the game and were causing problems down the right side and the hard work of Louis Leddy earned a penalty late in the first half, which Jake Day dispatched.

Good pressure and football in the second half led to a defensive mistake from Goole which saw Alec Johnson score an own goal to make it 2-0.

Goole were awarded a controversial penalty which Steve Russell superbly saved. Shortly after they were awarded another penalty for handball which sub Liam Holt scored.

Goole made attacking changes and went with four up front. Sports Club were hanging on until another Goole sub Paul Marshall tucked away a borderline offside goal.

Sports Club were playing deep in their half, absorbing pressure and playing on the break with Tom Gregory and Day missing one-on-ones, but were holding out for the draw until a last minute winner from Goole’s Marshall.
