AFC Liverpool 1 v 4 Stone Dominoes - Result

This game was important to both sides - A Stone win would take them top of the table, while an AFC Liverpool win would see them peg back one of the promotion chasing teams.

Conditions were not exactly ideal for this important match, the pitch looked liked it had hosted a rugby tournament on it.
It was to prove more suited to Stone, as AFC Liverpool prefer to play a flowing passing game, whereas the Dominoes chose a counter-attack style of play.
This worked to the vistors advantage, and in the 9th minute, Daniel Brown broke clear of the AFCL defence to put Stone ahead.
AFC Liverpool almost replied a few minutes later, when Ian Orme was brought down in the box, only for the referee to play advantage, and it was Todd Bamber who picked up the loose ball, but fired just wide.
It was Todd Bamber again in the 21st minute, who was played through, and unceremoniously brought down in the penalty area, this time the referee pointing to the spot. John Kennedy took the spot kick, which was saved by the keeper, only to pushed into the path of Matty Williams, who buried the ball into the back of the net to make the score 1-1.
Stone continued to push, and went ahead again in the 29th minute with a second goal for Daniel Brown, after a goal mouth scramble.
The visitors took another goal in the 34th minute courtesy of  their number 4.
The second half saw AFC Liverpool push further up the field, which forced Stone to sit deep, and this allowed AFC Liverpool to show their attacking intent.
Ian Orme came close on a few occasions, hitting the bar, and another attempt just wide. The Dominoes keeper made a couple of outstanding saves to fend off the AFC attack, and this kept stone in contention for the win.
The game was finally sealed for Stone on 55 minutes, when Simon Eldershaw scored, taking the score to 4-1.
Despite a spirited and attacking last 20 minutes for AFC, it was the Visitors who took all 3 points to go back to the top of the table.
