United come up short in derby day thriller

Date: 30 December 2017 at 09:38 by Keith Green

This game definitely lived up to it's billing. It had everything in goals, a penalty, two sending's off and a great atmosphere. Sphinx had a great start with an early 1st minute lead and went in at half time 2-1 up with United creating enough chances to have been in the lead themselves.

The second half got under way and with the game being end to end, Sphinx extended their lead again before United pulled themselves back in contention at 3-2 to Sphinx after 63 minutes.

Then only two minutes later Sphinx restored their two goal advantage from a neat far post header by Jamie Towers. United manage to pull another one back in the 70th minute but Sphinx manage to hold on and see the game out to claim the 3pts and bragging rights.
