Horlock seals win for Bury

AFTER missing two early chances, Wivenhoe took the lead after 18 minutes with a speculative effort from Adam Hampson from 35 yards out, which deceived keeper Marcus Garnham.

AFTER missing two early chances, Wivenhoe took the lead after 18 minutes with a speculative effort from Adam Hampson from 35 yards out, which deceived keeper Marcus Garnham.

Bury were awarded a penalty after 24 minutes when Liam Barrett was tripped in the box, but keeper Ed Wootten saved his spot kick.

Bury had more of the play but were unable to make it count until just past the hour mark. After making three substitutions, they scored two goals within a three minute period. On 62 minutes Liam Barrett was on the end of a fine move from out of the Bury defence, and two minutes later another slick passing movement saw Lee Smith give Wootten no chance.

After Barrett had headed against the Wivenhoe upright, Lee Underwood got clear from what appeared to be an offside position to level the scores again.
