Kirkley 2 v 1 Peckers

Kirkley & Pakefield 2-1 Woodbridge Town

By Rob Binns

Woodbridge Town suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat to Kirkley & Pakefield despite Taylor Southgate’s late goal.

Goals from Keenan Hutchings either side of half time were enough for the hosts in a game that saw Kelsey Trotter given a sin bin and Hutchings sent off for two yellow cards.

Kirkley & Pakefield took the lead in the 26th minute when Panashe Mundawarara drove forward down the left and poked through Hutchings who fired home off the post with a first time effort.

The Peckers were temporarily reduced to ten men in the 51st minute when substitute Kelsey Trotter was given a 10-minute sin bin for dissent by referee James Sendon.

The hosts doubled their lead five minutes later when they worked the ball well down the left and forced a save from Alfie Stronge amongst a melee in the box but Hutchings was on hand to turn home the rebound.

It was the Royals turn to be reduced to 10 in the 66th minute when Hutchings was given his marching orders following an altercation with Sean Rea which saw both players see yellow which was the forward’s second of the match.

The Peckers made their man advantage count in the 78th minute when substitute Evan Bolt’s wide free kick evaded everyone apart from Southgate who turned home at the back post to make it 2-1.

Woodbridge were unable to find a late equaliser and fell to defeat. They were hope to bounce back away at Newmarket Town next weekend.
