Late penalty save sees Linnets share the spoils with St Ives

January 27, 2019

St Ives 1 King's Lynn Town 1
The Linnets returned home from Westwood Road with a point following this keenly-contested Southern Premier Central Division fixture.
St Ives took the lead with the games first meaningful attack on 19 minutes as Ollie Snaith collected the ball on the edge of the Lynn box before dispatching a shot beyond Alex Street which ended up in the back of the net with the aid of the right post. 
Michael Gash teed up Adam Marriott whose shot was deflected to safety and a Frazer Blake-Tracy corner was collected by Ryan Fryatt who smashed a shot wide as the Linnets searched for an equaliser. 
Moments before the break Jake Newman toe-poked wide for St Ives with only Street to beat.
Street was again busy following the re start as he denied Snaith in a one-on-one situation with a fine save and moments later the same player somehow missed an open goal with Lynn’s defence all at sea. 
Martin Conway tipped over a Marriott header over the bar but on the hour he was helpless as the Town striker converted from close in following good work from Michael Gash and Chris Henderson.
The visitors then proceeded to enjoy their best spell of the game with Marriott producing a good save from Conway and a Rory McAuley header hitting the bar.
Conway thwarted substitute Will Mellors-Blair's curling shot as the pressure built. 
However it was the hosts who passed over a golden opportunity to secure all three points late on. 
Newman was adjudged to have been felled in the area with referee Donnellan awarding a spot-kick and the same player stepped up to be foiled by a diving Street who pulled off a fine save to ensure a share of the spoils.
King’s Lynn Town: Street, Kerins, Blake-Tracy, Richards, Fryatt, McAuley, Clunan, Parker, Gash, Marriott, Henderson. Subs: Hawkins, Jarvis, Mellors-Blair, Robinson, Bastock.  
Attendance: 322.
