US Tour Opens With A Draw

The Owls kicked off their American tour with a draw at Wilmington Hammerheads, new boy Kenny Lunt providing the late equaliser.

The former Crewe man produced a good finish late in the game after it had suffered an extended break due to the severe weather conditions in North Carolina.

Around 1000 travelling Owls saw a game where Steve Maclean featured in the early stages and the team had the best of the possession. Wilmington were stronger after the storm delay, going ahead six minutes into the second half and almost doubling their advantage shortly afterwards.

But the Owls responded well with McAllister and Bougherra both involved. They finished strongly, Brunt and Burton both in action before Lunt's equaliser, assisted by Brunt.



Details:

Wilmington 1 (Bagley 52)

Owls 1 (Lunt 84)

it's a friendly, the opposition doesn't matter, it's just about getting the players fit and used to each other before the season kicks off, when we're back in the big time we can look to flash friendlies, for now lets get ready for games that matter.

Auckland Owl - I'm sure the Millers would love to tour the US too - but we haven't the money to do it. As robc says, its only a way to get the team fit and to gel before the season begins.

Herring - hey come on, if Millers can have a dig, I can have a dig back :-) Whites - early releases said 1000 (as printed on the Wilmington web site).. so it's 100. Fair enough.
