NAHKI WELLS

Substitute Joe Lolley scored a cracking late equalizer as Nahki Wells and his Huddersfield Town teammates came from two down to draw 2-2 with Blackburn Rovers.

Lolley belted a low effort into the bottom right corner from 25 yards past former Town keeper Simon Eastwood on 84 minutes.

He latched on to a loose ball in the middle after Oscar Gobern had headed the ball into space.

It came just a minute after Town had the second of two goals controversially ruled out for off-side.

Gobern played in Scannell down the left and his cross was tapped in by Wells only for the flag to go up.

In the first half Ishmael Miller had a header from a Jacob Butterfield cross chalked off in a clearer cut decision than the later one.

Huddersfield started brightly but conceded two goals in five minutes mid-way through the first half.

Rookie home defender Joe Wilkinson, 19, had an unfortunate role in both goals on his debut.

Former Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes surged forward on 26 minutes and his shot fell for kindly for Rudy Gestede.

Wilkinson tried to block Gestede's effort but instead the ball looped up and bounced into the net.

Gestede has now scored five times in three matches after a hat-trick at Nottingham Forest and a goal against Millwall.

Strike partner Rhodes made it 2-0 with a trademark header after a Wilkinson blunder on 31 minutes.

A cross was going out of play when the defender intervened - with Rhodes punishing the lapse by crashing a header into the top corner.

In the process he became the first Blackburn player since Alan Shearer to score 20 goals in three successive seasons.

Rhodes left Huddersfield in 2012 for a club record £8million after bagging 73 goals in just 124 appearances.

Town started the game brightly with Eastwood saving a header from Mark Hudson in the opening seconds.

Miller and Nahki Wells also went close while Marcus Olsson and Paul Taylor shot wide from distance at the other end.

However Blackburn's two goals silenced the home crowd.

Huddersfield, seeking a first win over Rovers in 10 matches since 1999, were back in it when Miller was fouled by Tommy Spurr.

Butterfield curled in the resulting free-kick into the near post top corner from the right hand edge of the box on 39 minutes.

Wells and Rhodes traded chances before Lolley equalized.

REGGIE LAMBE

Despite a brave effort, Reggie Lambe and his Mansfield teammates failed to recover from the blow of having Ritchie Sutton sent off in the first minute as they lost 2-1 at home to Portsmouth.

Matt Tubbs bagged the resulting penalty in the second minute before Jed Wallace made it 2-0 from range on 55 minutes.

Teenager Jack Thomas' first senior goal kept the game alive on 67 minutes, but it wasn't enough to stop Portsmouth ending a run of six away games without a win and earning their first ever league win against Mansfield.

The game was only 50 seconds old when Chris Clements gave the ball away in midfield and Pompey broke quickly.

Matt Tubbs fed Jed Wallace to his left but, as he tried to finish, he was fouled by Sutton seven yards from goal.

The penalty was awarded and Sutton red-carded, Tubbs then sending Lenny Pidgeley the wrong way from the spot with two minutes on the watch.

After Jones had to make a save to deny Junior Brown just after the break, Wallace doubled Portsmouth's lead on 55 minutes. He let fly from 30 yards and the ball took a wicked bounce as the keeper dived and sailed high above him into the net.


But Mansfield were back in it on 67 minutes as teenager Thomas celebrated picking up four Player of the Season awards pre-match by curling a beauty into the top right corner from just outside the box on the left.

Charlotte Independence 1 Harrisburg City Islanders 1

Dante Leverock began his Professional Career the same way he started his FIFA World Cup International Career by scoring a header.

Leverock was making his Harrisburg City Islanders and in the 58th minute he scored a diving header from a corner which leveled the game at 1 – 1.

Smith & Floy Bow Out of NM Cupen Cup

IslandStats.com
Jonte Smith could not repeat his debut performance for Fløy FC in their NM Cupen match going down 5 – 4 on kicks from the penalty Mark after ending regulation time locked at 1 – 1 with Vindbjart.

Vindbjart took the lead in the 55th minute through a Victor Vindfjell goal, but Smith’s teammate Sander Birkeland equalized in the 78th minute to earn Fløy FC the draw.

After half hour Robert Skaårdal had a fine shot attempts from 17 and 18 yards out. Smith and Robert Skårdal were active in this period, but at the end of the first half the score remained 0 – 0.

Second half started with Fløy FC having a few close calls, after 48 minutes Smith had a chance saved.

But Vindbjart got the night’s first goal after a shot from about 20 yard, but Birkeland would equalize scoring from a rebound from a shot from Lars Kristian Pedersen.

In extra time, it seemed that both teams were tired and it was not produced the big chances, but it was constantly nerve in the game. Penalty competition was dramatic. After the first five penalties were 4-4 Andreas Jacobsen missed for Floy FC on the sixth attempt.

President & General Secretary Return from Bahamas

IslandStats.com
The Bermuda Football Association (BFA) President Larry Mussenden and General Secretary David Sabir have returned from the CONCACAF Ordinary Congress and Extra-Ordinary Congress in Nassau, Bahamas.

The Ordinary Congress was addressed by CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb, who guided the delegates through the agenda. His presentation included reports on competitions, finance, refereeing, marketing, and women’s football.

FIFA President Blatter also addressed the Congress and highlighted the important work of CONCACAF and member countries in the development of football throughout the region. He stated that it was his desire to grant CONCACAF four automatic slots for the World Cup.

Elections were held for several positions on the CONCACAF Executive Committee, as well as for the Central American position on the FIFA Executive Committee.

The Extra Ordinary Congress followed thereafter and saw the Congress accept the new CONCACAF Statutes. One area of interest to Bermuda was that the three Unions in CONCACAF were defined with their respective memberships. Bermuda and The Bahamas were listed in the North America Football Union (NAFU) along with Canada, Mexico and the United States, with the clause that Bermuda and The Bahamas would compete through the Caribbean Football Union (CFU).

The Congresses were also attended by the three candidates who have challenged President Blatter for the position of FIFA President.

In May 2015, three BFA representatives will attend the FIFA Congress in Zurich, Switzerland. The Delegation will be led by BFA First VP Mark Wade, with Second VP Gregory Grimes and Executive Member Crenstant Williams also attending. BFA President Larry Mussenden will attend the FIFA Congress in his capacity as Chairman of the Electoral Committee that will run the election for the position of FIFA Presidency.
