IN the Lancashire Football Association Amateur Cup quarter-final, the tie between College AFC and Preston Wanderers was switched as the parks pitches at Preston were deemed unplayable for the second week running.
Unfortunately, College AFC, the league’s last representatives in the competition, crashed out.
Preston Wanderers had all the luck in the opening five minutes.
Their left winger, who was a thorn in the College side the whole game, crossed a harmless looking ball into the penalty area.
The College centre half, in an attempt to clear the ball, only managed to smash it against his own full-back, resulting in the ball flashing into the back of the net without the ’keeper seeing it.
After another attack broke down College were under pressure again, which resulted in their defence being stretched.
Another defensive mistake allowed the Preston side take a 2-0 lead, slightly against the run of play.
College were rewarded for trying to play football when Adam Campbell scored from close in.
Within three minutes College deservedly got back on level terms when Campbell scored his second.
