Lido went top of the league when they scored a dramatic late winner over previously unbeaten Briton Ferry. In a repeat of last season’s scoreline Lido triumphed in a 5 goal thriller.
The game was played at a frantic pace with lots of good football. Ferry took the lead on 3 minutes when Luke Bowen netted with a right footed shot. Lido equalised on 9 minutes with a Liam McCreesh penalty. Chances were created at both ends but neither side were able to gain an advantage and half time came with the scores level.
It was the Lido who struck first in the second half with Liam Griffiths being credited with the goal on 48 minutes., Ferry responded but were unable to break down the Lido defence until, on the assistant referee’s input the referee awarded a harsh penalty. As to be expected several Lido players were booked disputing the decision. Luke Bowen stepped up to net the penalty to level matters again. Neither side could find a winner until Rhys Wilson was adjudged to have handled the ball outside his area and was sent off. His replacement was Aaron Jones who joined the Ferry from Lido in the summer. Aaron’s first task was to pick the ball out of the net as he failed to save Chris Jones’ free kick in the third minute of added time. There was a further five minutes of added time before the referee blew up on probably the best game of the season to date.
