FABION Simms netted a dramatic late header last night (Tuesday) to earn Potters Bar Town a 2-1 win in an entertaining clash with Heybridge Swifts, who featured The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright.
The Scholars had fallen behind early on as right-back Josh Urquhart turned a right wing Russell Pond cross into his own net on eight minutes.
Both sides tried to get the ball down and play a passing game with the hosts edging the amount of possession.
Town forced a host of corners with Urquhart going closest firing a low Matt Clifford delivery off target.
Swifts threatened again as Wright’s decent cross from the left was cleared by centre-half Denis Paratusic.
Despite plenty of encouraging build-up play neither side where able to add to the score-line before the break.
Bar keeper Matt Bennett had to be on his toes at the start of the second half to turn a Bertie Brayley drive around the post and then tip a Michael Toner fizzer over the bar.
At the other end Simms rifled just too high after a Louis Wavers cross was punched out to him on the edge of the box by keeper Stephen Northwood.
The home side got back on level terms 65 minutes in.
Urquhart’s throw was played back to him by Elvis Balic, the full-back then picked out striker Anton Agdomar who reached the byline before pulling the ball back for Tom Pett who turned his marker and fired low past Northwood who got a hand to the shot but could not stop it going in.
Swifts came within inches of regaining the lead as they hit the bar after good play by Billy Hawes and Brayley.
As it looked like the game would end in a draw Town launched one final attack.
Urquhart’s deep cross from the right was met by the head of midfielder Simms at the far post, he guided the ball home before being mobbed by his team-mates as his effort sealed the three points.
