Folkestone Invicta 2-2 Godalming Town


Godalming left the Buzzlines Stadium on Saturday with a point, but will be dissapointed not to have left with all three. A lively start to the game saw Folkestone start strongly, testing Somerville in the Gs goal early on. After 15 minutes, Darren Wheeler collected the ball on the left hand side, and crossed to the far post where Scott Harris volleyed a shot, only for Invicta defender Liam Friend to deliberately handle the ball off the line. Friend rightly received his marching orders, but Ryan Lake missed the resulting penalty, saved by Delo down to his right. Shortly after the Gs did take the lead, when Harris fired a low shot from outside the area which found the bottom corner. On the stroke of half time, Harris doubled the lead, after cooly finishing past Delo one on one.


Folkestone cane out strong in the second half, with Somerville pulling off some fine saves. Folkestone got back into the game when they were awarded a penalty after the Folkestone forward tumbled in the box under a soft challenge. Stuart King converted the penalty. Wheeler had a good chance for Godalming, but his volley went high and wide. Folkestone grabbed their equaliser in the 86th minute when Darren Smith pounced on a Folkestone strike and finished from close range.
