Radcliffe 3 Vs 0 Ossett Town Match Report
By Joseph Haslam
Radcliffe dominate in comfortable win.
Ossett Town would have liked a better result in what was their last away match before they merge with Ossett Albion to become Ossett United.
A bumper crowd turned out to see the Boro triumph in their last Saturday home match of the season.
Boro started the game as they meant to go pressing high up the pitch and looking to attack.
The hosts got their first chance of the game from a James Hooper free kick which curled just past the post and out of play.
Jordan Bove did open the scoring for the Boro in the 14th minute when a great ball in picked him out and he perfectly placed his header into the bottom corner of the net.
Hooper could have added a second for the hosts a couple minutes later, but his shot this time went wide.
In the 29th minute, the Boro did add their second of the game with Louis Myers getting on the scores here after a superb solo run which saw him get past the defenders and he placed his shot past Leigh Overton and into the bottom corner.
Radcliffe held their two goal lead into the break.
Half Time: Radcliffe 2-0 Ossett Town
After the restart Ossett Town were trying to find a way back into the game and put the Boro defence under pressure.
Radcliffe came close just after the hour mark when Matty Russell whipped a ball across goal, which Bove just couldn't turn in at the back post.
With twenty minutes to go, the Boro were looking to add a third to kill the game off and secure the three points.
They got their third goal in the 78th minute when Jimmy Daniels grabbed his first Radcliffe goal. A fantastic ball into the box picked him out and he placed his header into the back of the net.
The visitors’ best chance of the game came late in the day when Martin Pembleton forced Boro keeper Connor Keane into action, making a great diving save to keep his cleansheet in tact.
