0-0 after 90 minutes for a battle in the seventh-best English variety. If you wither on the inside just at the thought, you would in most cases be legally excused.
But the 537 spectators who had chosen to spend the Saturday afternoon at the Fullicks Stadium in Folkstone, was against all odds royally rewarded for their patience.
An expulsion, a molested guard and, oh yes, four scores in the course of the 11-minute overtime, made sure that the fight between Folkstone Invicta and Wingate & Finchley in the English Isthmian Premier Division probably does not go into oblivion soon.
But it was as I said first, as the match approached its end, that events began to take off.
With a few minutes again got the away team shown the defender Ahmet Rihat out. Then came a bigger argument between the players and a overfusning of one of the present stadionvagter from the bortdømte.
the 11 minutes of stoppage time could take its beginning, and from here it went fast.
First brought the home team Folkstone Invicta ahead on a penalty kick. Then doubled the lead in the 97. minute, and a decision seemed to be found.
In the 101. play-minute performance of the Wingate & Finchley the impossible. Within one minute, scored twice, and got spectacular show fought back with a bang, in a mildly remarkable game of football.
So if you are the type who usually leaves the stadium a few minutes in the slutfløjt, so perhaps you should in future remember that miracles are rare, but extremely entertaining, when you are lucky and patient enough to run into them.
