2s draw yet again in Aldenham stalemate

13 Oct 2020

The OHAFC 2nd XI played out their third consecutive 2-2 draw and their fourth draw in five League games this season as they held on to secure a point away to the Old Aldenhamians 1st XI on Saturday.

The visitors led twice in the second half, firstly when Andres Hutchinson latched onto Charlie Stebbings' pass to finish low past the keeper, then, following a breakaway Aldenham equaliser, when Hutchinson teed up Tristan David to slot home following an excellent move down the left wing.

A long cross from the Harrow right curled directly into the far corner through a posse of players to once more bring the sides level, but the real drama was saved for the 88th minute when Ed Massey conceded a penalty for a tangle of legs just inside the box. Keeper Charlie Walsh, who had driven up to Hertfordshire from Bournemouth on the morning of the game, made his journey all the more worthwhile with a superb save, diving to his left to palm the ball away, Massey completing the clearance.

The draw leaves the Blues in sixth in Division Two ahead of this weekend's trip to Potters Bar to face the Old Owens in an Old Boys Cup tie.
