Fulwood 3

Garstang FM 3

This top of the table clash, but started badly for Garstang when Fulwood gained a free kick on the edge of box and keeper Michael Firth pushed the shot against the bar and could only watch as the centre forward pounced to score.

Garstang drew level on 15 minutes when Aaron Parker was brought down in the box and Andy Whillens calmy dispatched the penalty.

Fulwood went 2-1 up after half an hour when their very quick winger latched onto a long ball and finished well.

However, Garstang were level again when Mark Heys played a great ball down the wing to Mark Laws, who crossed for Aubrey Grizedale to finish from close range.

In the second half Fulwood broke again from a long ball and finished well to make it 3-2.

Garstang threw everything at the Fulwood goal and were rewarded from a corner as Laws turned the ball to sub Mike Thornton, who prodded it home.

With seconds remaining Fulwood broke again and just as the centre forward looked destined to score Jo Collinson brought him down just outside the box to give away a free kick, Collinson was sent off.

Fulwood missed the resulting free kick.
