Foxton 3-3 Bar Hill

Saturday saw Foxton register their first point in six games in a 3-3 draw at home with Bar Hill.

After a fairly good start, Foxton found themselves a goal down when a Bar Hill player scored from close range.

It then got worse for the home team with the visitors doubling their lead soon after with a looping shot from a half cleared corner that went in off the post.

Foxton didnt give up and kept rallying. The hard work paying off as they pulled a goal back when Matty Chapman headed home at the back post from Roger Skeggs’ cross.

Foxton then levelled when Stuart Hoskins, playing his first game of the season after a long lay off with injury, also headed home, this time from a Josh Sewell corner.

2-2 HT

Starting the second half and now with the momentum, Foxton had hoped to take the game to Bar Hill, but could’ve been behind again pretty much from the kick off had the Bar Hill forward scored his chance.

Bar Hill continued to edge proceedings in the early stages of the second half and just as Foxton looked like they were starting to get back into it, they went behind again, from a breakaway goal from their own corner which was finished well at the back post.

Again it was up to Foxton to dig deep and rally, which they did drawing level, when Skeggsy chased down what looked a lost cause, but a mix up between the visiting keeper and defender allowed Roger to nip in between them and poke the ball home from the edge of the box.

Both teams kept pushing for the win but there were no further goals and the game finished all square.

3-3 FT

So, although it wasnt a win, Foxton showed great character to fight back from behind more than once, stopping the ‘rot’ and picking up a much needed point.
