Last-gasp McCormack goal salvages 1-1 draw against champions Villa

Sean McCormack rescued a point for Ascot United as The Yellamen came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with unbeaten league champions Hanworth Villa on Tuesday evening. Trailing 1-0 at the break, The Yellamen produced a dominant second half performance to become one of just four teams to take points off Villa this season.

After a frantic start from both sides it was the visitors who took an early lead when Sami Gagan’s header from a tenth minute corner gave home ‘ keeper Sam Gray no chance.

Ascot enjoyed spells of good possession with McCormack involved in the thick of it, and he might have drawn Ascot level just before half-time only to sting the palms of visiting ‘keeper Terry Buss; a man proving hard to beat as Villa had kept clean sheets in their five previous games.

Aiming to preserve their own decent run of just two defeats in seventeen matches coming into the game, Ascot came out firing in the second half and after chances for Morgan who almost caught out Buss, McCormack, and then man-of-the match Tom Scott whose show was well saved, McCormack deservedly levelled post with virtually the last kick of the game. This time, he was on hand to capitalize on an uncharacteristic error from Buss to slide home at the far post to the delight of the majority of the 150-plus crowd.

There was little time for the home side to force a winner, but they nonetheless joined an elite group containing only Burnham, Edgware and Wokingham who can boast of drawing with the seemingly invincible champions this season.

The Yellamen are now not in action until Easter Saturday when they entertain local rivals Windsor FC.
