HEREFORD Pegasus left Oxfordshire disappointed with the single point as a lack of cutting edge cost them in a 1-1 draw with Shrivenham.

The two in-form sides cancelled each other out early in the match with visitors Pegasus playing up the two-metre sloped pitch.

Pegasus could have had a 15th minute lead, but were denied by a series of important goal-line blocks and an excellent one handed reaction save from the Shrivenham goalkeeper Sam Ayers whilst on the floor.

Peggy skipper Jamie Price was next to test the home side’s goal striking a 40-yard goal-bound volley which was also denied by Ayres.

Against the run of play Shrivenham opened the scoring. An uncharacteristic mistake by Lewis Fletcher allowed Josh Elms to get free and roll the ball past goalkeeper James Loader.

Five minutes before the interval, Pegasus appeared to have levelled the scores but, the referee adjudged that Mike Burgess had committed a foul in the build-up.

Ten minutes after the break, the home goal survived a flurry of on target shots, created from a throw by Curtis Townley, which were all blocked by defenders.

Then in the 61st minute a corner from Price caused panic in the home penalty area with the ball ending in the corner of the net.

It was thought that Fletcher was the goal scorer however, the dubious goals committee credited it to Curtis Townley.

Both sides had goalscoring opportunities to steal victory as Jack Rockett flashed a shot over the bar for the hosts and then Carlos Moreira fired wide at the opposite end.

The final goal opportunity fell to Fletcher, from a throw-in he could only direct his header straight at Ayres.
