Jake strikes late to deliver FA Vase derby joy for Peterborough Northern Star, Deeping finish strongly, Pinchbeck are out, 10-man Holbeach launch brilliant fightback
Peterborough Northern Star made it four wins in a row in all competitions by claiming a late winning goal to knock March Town United out of the FA Vase at the Branch Bros Stadium today (September 15).
Jake Sansby grabbed the only goal of the game seven minutes from time. He then saw a penalty saved before Star saw out a second qualifying round tie.
Deeping Rangers also eased through by coming from behind to win 4-1 at Walsham Le Willows. The hosts took an early lead that was cancelled out by Scott Mooney midway through the first half.
Deeping ‘keeper Richard Stainsby then took centre stage by saving a penalty before Callum Johnson, Harry Allcock and Luke Anderson all netted in the final 20 minutes.
Pinchbeck United are out though. They went down 2-1 at Woodbridge Town after playing the final 30 minutes with 10 men following Jack Smith’s red card.
Fraser Bayliss had equalised for Pinchbeck in the first-half courtesy of a cracking strike.
Holbeach United also finished with 10 men in their United Counties Premier Division game against Cogenhoe at Carter’s Park. Joe Braithwaite saw red after conceding the spot-kick which gave Cogenhoe a 2-0 lead, but the 10 men fought back brilliantly to draw 2-2 thanks to goals from Josh Ford (penalty) and new signing Declan Rogers.
