FOOTBALL: MiIlers are three clear
10:00am Monday 14th October 2013 in Sport
North Leigh secured their ninth win in a row to go three points clear at the top of Uhlsport Hellenic League Division 1 South & West.
But they had to come from behind beat Mangotdfield united 2-1 at a ground where they have had little joy in recent seasons.
The Millers dominated the early exchanges and had a good shout for a penalty waved away in the first minute when Elliott Osborne-Ricketts looked to have been fouled.
They then went close through James Organ and Andy Caton.
But the home side took the lead on 23 minutes, after Kieran Sanders had given away a corner with a miskick.
Keeper Paul White dropped the ball when the corner was swung in and Ryan Bennett was credited with getting the ball across the line in the ensuing scramble.
North Leigh were level on 34 minutes when a Morgan Williams cross was deflected by defender Tom Parrinello past his own keeper.
The visitors were the better side after the break and they finally took the lead with ten minutes to go when sub Jacob Walcott cleverly put Conor McDonagh through.
He was brought down in the box by Bennett and Stuart Hole made no mistake with the spot-kick.
N Leigh: White, Hole, Organ, Bowles, Gunn, Caton, Sanders (Turk 35), Osborne-Ricketts (Else 60), Woodley (Walcott 79), McDonagh, Williams. Sub not used: Westlake.
