Ossett Albion sign off with loss

OSSETT ALBION ended their season in defeat after Mossley scored a goal in each half to take all three points.

The first half was fairly even, with very little in the way of football to cheer.

The talking point of the half came on 29 minutes when a ball over the Albion defence found two Mossley forwards running clear.

Albion shouted for offside, but it was not given, and although the resulting shot beat Neil Bennett, defender Dominic Riordan made a valiant effort to clear the ball.

In the process he collided with the post and the ball fell to Sam Robinson, who fired it into the net to give the away side the lead.

The second half saw Albion come out in determined mood, and although they had the better of the play, they were unable to create any real chances.

Adam Muller had the best chance when Liam Flynn in the Mossley goal saved a hard shot one-handed. From the resulting corner Adam Jones tried to force the ball into the net, but it was headed off the line.

On 70 minutes a back-pass by a Mossley defender from the edge of the six-yard box gave Albion a free kick, but it was saved.

With time running out, Albion were awarded a penalty when Daniel McDonnell pushed Connor Brunt. Connor Bower took the kick but placed it to the goalkeeper’s left and was saved.

In added time Mossley got their second.

The visitors went up the right wing, and when the ball came to Charlie Anderson he made no mistake, wrapping up the points for the visitors.
