Barrow Town 4-1 Radford EMCL

Radford, in all sky blue strip, showed up well in the early stages of the game and there wasn't much between the sides. The first chance in the game fell to Barrow when a defender was caught in possession and a shot was fired wide of the goal on ten minutes. Barrow should have definately took the lead on 23 minutes. A poor corner was crossed to the far edge of the penalty area, the ball was fired back into the six yard box to an unmarked Calum Ross whose shot flew high over the goal. Four minutes later Radford came close to taking the lead when Ebrahim Mirmohammodi vollied a foot over from 25 yards out. After saving a long range shot from Barrow's Cam Gray the Radford keeper threw the ball out to left back Kyle Crofts. He raced up the wing and played a good ball to Gareth Ellis. Ellis beat his marker and crossed into the Barrow area where Richard Derby smashed the ball home from close range.

Barrow came back at Radford and after a series of corners a cross hit the top of the crossbar before going out for a goalkick.On 36 minutes Barrow were awarded a penalty when a forward was brought down in the area. Up stepped captain Craig Noble who hit it dead centre as the keeper dived to his right. It wasn't long before Barrow took the lead and it was again Noble who scored. A ball over the top of the Radford defence saw Noble run on and beat the keeper with a low shot at his near post.

Five minutes into the second half and Barrow were awarded a free-kick 12 yards from the Radford goal after the keeper had picked up a back pass. Luckily for Radford the kick was blasted at the wall and cleared to safety. Barrow were getting more possession in the second half but good play along the left wing involving Crofts and Ellis nearly led to Derby scoring for Radford. Barrow stretched their lead in the 70th minute when Karl Whymark chipped the ball over Martin Apenitis from 16 yards out. It was all over as a contest in the 80th minute when Cameron Gray made it 4-1. The ball was played back to him from the bye-line and he swept the ball home from 8 yards. FT 4-1
