Catholic United 3-3 Old Southendian
A LATE PENALTY denied Old Southendian the opportunity of a fourth ProKit UK Essex Olympian League Premier Division victory as Catholic United completed a remarkable comeback at the Len Salmon Stadium.
Nick Hennessey handed the Old Boys a first-half advantage and then doubled his and the Garon Park outfits tally shortly after the restart.
Catholic reduced the arrears. However, Ed Gould restored their two-goal advantage from an acute angle to seemingly seal the points.
But Catholic had other ideas, scoring twice late on – the latter from the spot to ensure a share of the spoils.
Speaking to Yellow Sport after the match, Old Boys boss, Connor Lane, said: “What a game! Overall it was an end to end clash, although I thought we had the better chances.
“I’m gutted that we couldn’t get the three points, but after our game here last year, I would have taken a point before the game.
“We had a lot more chances than them but fair play to Catholic, they fought back well at the end to stop us taking home the spoils.”
