Spartak Advance in Shield

Sallins Celtic 3, Spartak 4 (AET)

Spartak had to come from behind twice in normal time before Stuart Love nodded in the winner from Jason Fenlon’s cross in extra time.

Jason Fenlon had given Spartak an early lead, justified on the play, but the home team struck back with a powerfully driven free which evaded the grasp of Jason Northey, who had a fine game after recovering miraculously from grievous injury the previous week.

Poor marking from a free allowed Sallins to lead, until Kevin Cunningham drove in from close range. A good move by the home side with ten to go looked to have booked their passage to the next round, but a Steve Grier header in the 89th minute forced extra time.

Spartak sparkled in teh first period of extra time, making several chances before Love’s winner. The second period saw the home side throw caution to the winds; both sides had chances but none were converted.
