Somerset County League Premier
Clevedon 3, Berrow 3
BERROW had to settle for a point on a Clevedon pitch that was struggling to cope with the recent poor weather.
Harry Penfold was unavailable but Steve Osgood returned to the side while captain Jeff Read returned from injury and top scorer Connor Watts also returned to the starting line up.
Berrow started well with Jack Radford involved in most of Berrow's good play and they took the lead when Luke Mcerlains ball into the box was turned in by a home defender under pressure from Radford.
Against the run of play, Clevedon equalised when a cracking shot from 30 yards hit the bar and went in giving Harrison no chance.
Berrow continued to dominate and deservedly re-took the lead when Scott Lismore struck from 25 yards with a well struck shot.
In the second half, the home side came out in determined mood and forced Berrow onto the back foot and from a counter-attack they equalised with a mis-hit shot deceiving Harrison.
The home side managed to take a 3-2 lead from a free kick as a looping header found its way into the top corner.
But Berrow had the final say and with the final attack of that match, Watts was fouled 25 yards from goal and Luke Mcerlain placed a brilliant free kick into the top corner to silence the home side.
Man of the match was Scott Lismore.
Team: Harrison, Osgood, John, K.McErlain, Lismore, Harper (Bellinger), L.McErlain, Read (Green), Radford (Hartnup), Watts, Morgan.
