Sam Agar scores as Flowserve beat Teversal
NEWARK FLOWSERVE made it four wins from six matches as they bounced back in style from a first defeat with a 2-0 win at Teversal in the East Midlands Counties League.
The workmanlike performance and fourth win took Flowserve up to fourth.
There was little to separate the sides in the first period, though the deadlock should have been broken by centre forward Sam Agar, who missed two opportunities to give the visitors the lead.
In the 37th minute Flowserve’s new signing from Long Eaton, Callum Smith, was bundled over in the area and Sam Agar made no mistake from the spot as he fired home his third of the season — making amends for a missed spot-kick at Selston four days earlier.
Flowserve went into the half-time break with a 1-0 lead, knowing a second goal could prove vital.
Less than a minute into the second period Jamie Lloyd made it 2-0.
After picking the ball up in the final third, Lloyd tried his luck from distance.
It was a tame shot but home keeper Rio Alberry allowed the ball to roll under his body and trickle over the line and into the net.
Flowserve controlled the rest of the half and might have made it 3-0.
Callum Smith’s cross drew the keeper off his line but Agar headed over.
In midweek Flowserve had lost to a 90th minute winner at third-placed Selston as the hosts’ 2-1 success continued their 100% record.
It was Flowserve’s first setback in their debut season in step six football.
In an eventful match, Sam Agar missed a ninth-minute penalty for the visitors and Solomon Miller was shown a straight red card for violent conduct in the 22nd minute.
Flowserve’s ten men kept the score level up to half-time and, having conceded early in the second period, equalised through a Danny Meadows penalty.
On Saturday Flowserve travel to Radford.
