Beavers take point in Harrow heat

The Battle of the Boroughs ended in a draw, a game played at frenetic pace in warm conditions and the fact it was the first game of the season showed.

The Beavers suffered an early blow with the loss of Kieran Murphy on 10 minutes following an injury that looked like a knee problem. After treatment, he attempted to continue, but then after a minute or two, he took the sensible choice to not take a risk, coming off and being replaced by the able Joe Hicks.

They rose above that and on 18 minutes, the overlapping Josh Casey cut the ball back into the box, finding Charlie Moone who beat one defender to sidefoot the ball past Harrow keeper Ben Goode with the Beavers first shot on goal.

Harrow slowly got back into the first half and Mark Charles-Smith nearly opened up the game on 26 minutes as he turned Moussa Diarra on the edge of the box; his shot from the angle flew high over the bar.

On 42 minutes, Harrow got their reward as a Joshua Webb cross was met by Mark Charles-Smith, whose close range header gave keeper Seb Brown little chance.

Harrow could have taken the lead almost immediately afterwards as Dylan Cascue could only direct his close range header just over the bar from a wicked cross from the right.

Both side pressed in the early minutes of the second half; Charles-Smith's weak shot didn't trouble Brown and for Hampton, Charlie Moone found the Harrow defence impenetrable as two attempts in quick succession were blocked in goalmouth scramble where it only seemed a matter of time before the net bulged with a Beavers attempt.

The travelling support thought Joe Hicks had scored as he connected firmly with a header on 65 minutes but it was cleared off the line.

With less than 10 minutes to go, Moussa Diarra thought he'd broken the deadlock as he stabbed home a deflected free kick, but it was ruled out for offside against the defender.

2 minutes later, Harrow had the ball in the net themselves from a George McCluskey free kick, but the officials ruled it out for a foul, which hugely disappointed the home support.

Hampton almost had the last word as Nicke Kabamba's first time shot looped over the bar as added time loomed, but all in all, not a bad point.
