Lighthouse edge tight season opener against Vineyard 

VineyardLighthouse14Sept450Norwich Vineyard and Lighthouse kicked off their season in the adult division of the Norfolk Christian Football League with a tightly contested game. Jim Green reports.

 
In the first half Lighthouse dominated the early possession without creating any chances of note, while Norwich Vineyard came back into it in the latter stages of the half, again without much to show for it.
 
One of the Vineyard players was unable to complete the first half and then his team took the lead with a Kyle Goreham header from a corner.
 
The second half got off to a dramatic start. Lighthouse had a free kick on the edge of the Vineyard penalty area. The shot was not particularly threatening but the Vineyard keeper spilled it leaving an easy tap in for a Lighthouse forward. Two minutes later the Vineyard keeper was so upset with his mistake that he made no attempt to stop a long range shot going into the net.
 
The remainder of the game was largely a matter of Vineyard pressing for an equaliser and stout defending from Lighthouse. Despite two Vineyard corners in the last minute, Lighthouse hung on to win.
