Full Match Report: Harrow Borough 1 – 2 AFC Totton

It was a late, late heartbreak for new Harrow boss Jordan Berry as two goals deep
into stoppage time saw Totton return to Hampshire with all the points after a 2-1
opening day victory at the Rogers Family Stadium.

Harrow – with 9 debutants in their starting line-up settled faster and edged a first half
where clear-cut chances were at a premium. It was the home side who took the lead
in the final minute of the first half. The lively Reece Mitchell thundering a left foot shot
into the net from 8 yard, after good work from Lonit Talla.

The second half was evenly fought, until Harrow sub-Ross Oulton was shown a
straight red card, adjudged to have caught Charlie Kennedy with his elbow in the 71st
minute- only 8 minutes after coming on.

The remainder of the match was played with every Harrow player behind the ball.
Totton thought they had equalised in the 87th minute, only for Rendall’s header to be
ruled offside.

Totton’s pressure finally paid off in the 97th minute when Kennedy finished from close
range at the far post. A draw would have perhaps been the fairest result on the day.
However, there was still time for Totton to snatch a winner in the 99th minute, when
Burrows fired a low shot through a crowd of exhausted Harrow players, that
deflected past Tobin and into the net.
