BOATMEN BLAST BITTER BLOW TO RIVAL STAGS
AFC Totton’s play-off hopes hang by a thread going into the last day of the season as fierce rivals Sholing FC spoiled the Easter Monday party with a 1-0 victory.
It was a typical derby match with opportunities at a premium for both sides, as the first half ended goalless with both sides manufacturing half chances at best.
The second half followed a similar pattern to the first, although with more at stake for the hosts their opponents were happy to sit back and frustrate. The only goal came late on, Dan MASON muscled his way onto a through ball which he slotted into the bottom corner.
The Stags seemingly had no answer, and the Boatmen took home the win.
