United End Famine
Highgate United ended their goal famine after 260 minutes of football which has seriously damaged their championship hopes. Left back Steve Evans curled a free kick from 20 yards out of the reach of Coleshill's reserve keeper Collins (this might be Hollins) into the far corner of the net in the 80th minute of a game in which they had been by far the better side. But as with the previous two games against Cradley Town and Stratford Town, from which Highgate took only one point, their forward line seemed totally blunted when presented with scoring opportunities. Tony Donnelly forced Collins to push his hard shot around the post for a corner after five minutes in what was their best chance in the first half. Highgate, already weakened by the absence of schemer Phil Summerhill and midfielder Steve Dunn, lost right back Steve Bates with an injury midway through the first half. Just as it seemed that Highgate's poor spell would continue, with them dropping another needless point, Steve Evans' goal came out of the blue to keep their fading title hopes alive, although a runners-up spot now seems on the cards.
