Cray lost their third straight game at the start of the season against a lively Ware side.

Cray started well and took the lead when they were awarded a penalty after 40 seconds.  Ian Daly was brought down by keeper, Rhys Madden and Shaun Welford converted the penalty.

Ware dominated the game after this and levelled when Bafode Carvalho’s shot was deflected and looped into the net.

After half time Ware carried on where they left off and took the lead on 48 minutes from Albert Adu who hit a screamer into the top corner of the net.

It got worse for Cray three minutes later when after a goal mouth scramble, Lee White’s shot was adjudged to have crossed the line. 

Welford was then sent off for dissent.

Both teams were reduced to nine men when after an off the ball incident a melee ensued and Cray had Dmitri Larin sent off and Ware had Adu and Charlie Ledula dismissed.  

Ware were awarded a penalty in the last minute when Nick Taylor felled Khale Da Costa.  Murat Karagul scored to complete an afternoon the Wands would like quickly to forget.
