On the reverse fixture Stanmore beat Amersham 8-1 but this time it was different game!

1st half

Amersham were at home again. Stanmore kicked off and started quickly with a goal by Ali. Amersham then equalised because they had got a free kick near the centre circle because Ali Reza committed a foul. They passed the ball through and had a one on one with the keeper and scored. Then Stanmore went ahead again through Ali with a calm finish. Then Amersham equalised again because the keeper punched it out while he was on the floor and it was an open goal. The match stayed like this until the end of the half.

Half time: score 2-2

The score level, both teams needed a goal to win. Both Stanmore and Amersham had good chances in the second half but both keepers were on top form in the second half and neither sides could convert. Ali had a shot and it was saved by the keeper then Abid had the rebound and that also got saved by the keeper. With a few minutes to go, Yaseen had almost scored an amazing volley but the Amersham keeper made a stunning save.

Full time 2-2
