|Ware get the game started.|
Half Time Ware 0 Maldon and Tiptree 0
The second half was a distinct improvement on the first and in the first minute Yao for the visitors was put through on goal but keeper Madden and defender Akande combined to clear the danger. There then followed a period of pressure from the home side with King putting a first time effort from a long clearance over the bar before Rolfe put a good volley just wide. Phillips in the visitors goal then excelled with two fine saves to firstly deny Gill with a fine diving save before King was thwarted with a superb save from his close range shot. Further efforts from King and Rolfe were more comfortablely dealt with by Phillips before the visitors surprisingly scored 3 times in 4 minutes. The first after 70 minutes came when Wall headed on a Milner throw to Yao who then set up Luke to score with a fine shot from 20 metres into the top corner. Just 3 minutes later Yao scored the second when he ran onto a long Berquez pass, turned his defender and then, from 15 metres, shot low and hard past the helpless Madden in the home goal.
