Shire Hall paid the price for missing first-half scoring opportunities at Red Lane, where the home side bossed the second 40 minutes of this BB&O 1 South clash.
Skipper Tom Brown commented: “If we had a bit more pace out wide we would probably have scored in the first half. But at least the lads kept going.”
