Stourport Swifts 2 Rocester 2 Saturday 26th September Attendance 116
Ten man Stourport Swifts fought back from 2-0 down to earn a point against Rocester yesterday.
Rocester looked a different side to the one beaten 2-0 by the Swifts on the opening day of the season, and dominated the the first half hour of this match, but were fortunate with the opening goal when Dan Brown's long range effort took a deflection to loop over Dominic Richards' desperate leap and drop into the top corner.
Worse was to come for the Swifts when Jamie Hyde was sent off for a second bookable offence on the stroke of half time to leave them with ten men.
After the break a reshuffled Swifts found themselves two down after 64 minutes when Brown added his second, tapping in after Swifts defenders twice failed to clear.
Jack Bailey came on with 15 minutes to go and within five minutes gave his side a lifeline, volleying home smartly from 6 yards after Jim Hanson's right wing free kick.
With the clock ticking down Ryan Wollacot grabbed a point for the Swifts with a powerful header into the bottom corner from another Hanson free kick from the right.
