HSA collected a good point away at Alresford to consolidate their position in the Essex and Suffolk Border League Premier Division in what was a disappointing spectacle of a match.
Both sides appeared to struggle to come to terms with the very wet surface and the recent enforced break in fixtures and a midfield battle ensued.
The match swung to and fro with both teams being on top for periods In the first half, Alresford dangerman Czapla’s volley which Liam Cutts gathered safely and Paul Hunt’s spectacular effort which O’Reardon managed to palm away for a corner were the only real efforts of note.
At the start of the second period Alresford had their best spell of the match and Ryan Geoghegan had to be alert to clear off the line after Price had rounded Cutts before Cutts then produced an excellent double save.
With 15 minutes to go Ryan Weaver fed Owen Longley whose effort from a tight angle bought a good save from O’Reardon.
HSA finished the stronger as the game became stretched but couldn’t force a winner with the draw being a fair result.
