3 - 2Full Time
Spennymoor won a chaotic and lively match against Guiseley with some remarkable efforts and goals taking place on a night of tension at The Brewery Field.
Moors are back up to 4thin the National League North, while Guiseley will be looking nervously below them as they hover outside the relegation zone.
A corner from Lewis Hawkins in the opening five minutes found Shane Henry free at the near post, and he hammered a header from close range past Lions keeper Marcus Dewhurst.
Three minutes later the ball pinged out of the box and Shane Henry drove it hard and low taking a wicked deflection to make it 2-0.
Halfway through the first half a ball into the box from Kaine Felix bounced around the box before dropping to captain Garner who volleyed it into the roof of the net from 10 yards out.
Spennymoor struck back through top goal scorer Glen Taylor, who floated a cross in and Robert Ramshaw arched his neck back and swirled the header into the bottom corner making it 3-1 before the break.
Kingsley James then won a questionable free-kick in the 70thminute and it was taken by super sub William Hatfield, who from 27 yards out mercurially curled it into the top corner beating Moors keeper Gould to make it 3-2.
Moors were looking to jump back into 4thplace in National League North with the three points, while Guiseley were aiming to push further away from the relegation zone.
Gould made two huge back to back saves to keep Moors’ 2-1 lead, first from Kaine Felix’s angled shot, then tipping over from a zipped corner delivery from Langley.
A subdued second half from both sides had the occasional spark but Moors were starting to close out a much needed three points.
With half an hour to go Hawkins created space for himself as the Lions defence parted and went for the boomeranging shot, which pulled wide.
Guiseley were hammering on the door as the game drew to its conclusion, with Moors captain James Curtis’ final ditch block keeping it 3-2 after a burst from Hatfield.
Moments later Gould kept out Michael Fowler’s close range shot, before right back Andrew Halls cannoned against the crossbar with the final action of an enthralling meeting.
Moors travel to second bottom Ashton United on Saturday.
