A late equaliser from Ashley Vincent denied a strong Morecambe Reserves victory
SHREWSBURY TOWN 3
A late equaliser from Ashley Vincent denied a strong Morecambe Reserves victory in their opening Final Third Development League game on Tuesday.
Stewart Drummond’s side took the lead in the game at the Greenhous Meadow when Ryan Williams found the bottom corner from Aaron McGowan's cross.
Andy Robinson then levelled the score with a low, left-footed drive across goal after driving into the box.
In the second half, Padraig Amond put the Shrimps back in front for a second time by tapping in Jack Sampson's cross from the left.
Town again equalised, though, when Liam Lawrence converted a penalty after youth team midfielder Josh Ginnelly was brought down by goalkeeper Andreas Arestidou.
It appeared the visitors would win the game, however, as Amond maintained his excellent recent goalscoring form when he headed in his second for the Shrimps to give them a late lead.
But Vincent popped up at the end to help the ball in with a simple tap in.
