Mozza Magic Lifts the Reds

A winning goal by Michael Morrison in injury time saw Colne take all three points in the local derby against Clitheroe at Holt House on Monday.

The Reds turned in another battling performance in an evenly balanced game and were rewarded for their never-say-die attitude.

Clitheroe made a bright start to the game and were unlucky when Kurt Willoughby saw his shot rebound between the post and Colne keeper Greg Hartley before being cleared from the Reds goalmouth after only two minutes.

But it was Colne who drew first blood after eight minutes when Spencer Jordan’s cross from the bye line was turned home at the near post by Chris Lynch for the opening goal. The Reds pressed forward and Jason Hart’s cross from the right wing was headed just over the bar by Oliver Wood from a great chance. Phil Dean opened up the visitors defence with some good runs and his high cross from the left wing was punched away by Blues keeper Chris Thompson off the head of Wood.

At the other end, Clitheroe forced a series of corners with some good attacks but Charlie Russell saw his shot saved by Hartley and Bradley Carroll fired wide from another opening for the Blues. On the half hour, Clitheroe drew level when a free kick out on the left was curled into the home penalty area by Robbie Bromley and Dimitri Tuanzebe’s glancing header found the bottom corner of the Colne net.

The end-to-end play continued in the second half and after 54 minutes, a good through ball by Michael Morrison released Wood for a run on goal but Thompson raced from his area to halt his run with a clumsy challenge and was shown a yellow card for the offence.

On the hour, a through ball by Wood found Dean in space on the left wing but he shot across the face of goal from a good opportunity. As the half progressed Clitheroe continued to force corners but the Reds defended well and began to look more dangerous with their attacks at the other end with the introduction of Adam Morning.

A good move after 83 minutes saw Simon Nangle head just wide from Hart’s cross and a Joe Garvin free kick brought a good save from Thompson to push his shot round the post. With the game into two minutes of added time, the Reds grabbed the winner when a long throw by Lee Pugh was half cleared and the ball slotted through for Morrison who blasted home an unstoppable shot through a crowd of defenders, to spark the celebrations by the Red Army as Colne march on in this dramatic climax to the season.
