Colne Pay the Penalty at Bootle


Colne paid the penalty for two missed spot kicks when they went down to a narrow defeat at Bootle.

The Reds went three goals behind but kept their hopes alive right till the end when they missed their second penalty kick of the game to finally concede defeat.

Colne found it hard going in the first half against a resolute Bootle side but might have had goals when Chris Anderson fired over the bar from a great chance after only five minutes and Jay Hart saw his shot fly to safety off the crossbar on the half hour.

But Bootle were always in contention and it was no real surprise when they took the lead after 39 minutes when Colne keeper Tony Aghayere could only block a hard cross shot in his goalmouth and Joe Peacock knocked home the rebound.

The Reds were presented with an opportunity to level the scores just five minutes later when Anderson was brought down in the penalty area but Hart’s spot kick was kept out by a great save from home keeper Ryan Jones to keep Bootle in front. And the home side doubled their lead within a minute when Tom Peterson saw his shot come back off the post and Michael Ordish fired home the rebound for a half time lead of 2-0.

Colne began the second half looking to make a come-back but on the hour, Steven Hoy stretched Bootle’s lead further when he found the top corner of the net with a great diagonal shot that gave Aghayere no chance.

The introduction of substitutes Joel Melia and Spencer Jordan breathed new life into the Colne midfield and the Reds reduced the arrears when Lee Pugh found the bottom corner of the net with a shot through a crowded penalty area. And two minutes later, Ben Wharton got behind the Bootle defence and his cross from the bye-line was knocked in by Jordan to bring Colne within touching distance at 3-2 after 66 minutes.

Colne pressed forward but Bootle defended in depth and with time running out looked likely to hold on to the points. But in injury time, Dom Craig was tripped in the penalty area to give the Reds what seemed a certain equaliser. But again Jones was Bootle’s hero as he made another excellent save to keep out Dean Stott’s spot kick and deny Colne any reward from the game.
