Match Report - 20 Sep 2008, Leeds Modernians Football Club 1sts lost to Old Collegians

The first team produced a better performance following their draw to Shire the previous week, but conceded two late goals to gift Collegians the three points at Salandine Nook on Saturday.

Despite seeing less of the ball than their opponents in the first half, it was the Mods who fashioned out 4 or 5 great goalscoring opportunities with some good counter-attacking play. Only one of these chances was taken, however, when Tom Breider latched onto an Alex Pouncett throughball to put the Mods 1-0 up.

Collegians started the second half the brighter, although Mods did have chances to increase their lead. That second goal remained elusive though, and the hosts made them pay as Jonny Morgan scored twice in the last 10 minutes.

The Mods thought they'd equalised right at the death, but the referee claimed the ball didn't cross the line, ignoring the fact the side netting even bulged! Time for goalline technology in the amateur game?
