Morrison swoops late to seal Swifts win

Stourport Swifts 2, Loughborough University 1

TEN-MAN Stourport came from behind to take the points against a useful University side.

Kieran Kenlock fired the Students into the lead only for Calvin Dinsley and Chris Morrison to swing the game in Swifts favour.

It was the visitors who were first to threaten when, on eight minutes when Tristan Dunkley fired a free-kick straight at home keeper Sam Hawker.

Midway through the half, Stourport striker Jon Griffin saw red after an off the ball incident but Swifts still had the better of the play with Ashley Parsons-Smith going close after good work from the outstanding Jordan Jones.

The game burst into life on the hour when Kenlock had a shot saved by the Swifts keeper before Jones forced a save from the Loughborough keeper.

The visitors opened the scoring on 61 minutes when a quick break upfield resulted in Kenlock shooting past Hawker in the Swifts the goal.

But the home side were back on level terms seven minutes later when Dinsley scored from the penalty spot after the referee spotted a handball.

It was substitute CMorrison who bagged the winner 12 minutes from time. His initial shot was blocked but the forward reacted quickest to slot home the equaliser.

Swifts: Hawker 7, JONES 9, Hyde 7, Briscoe 7, Willets 7, Walker 7, Dinsley 7, Hurrell 7 (Curtis 81), Pountney 7 (Morrison 69, 7), Griffin 4, Parsons-Smith 8. Sub (not used): Seekings
