Goal machine Debrouwer nets another treble in Vase victory

Heanor Town made it through to the second round proper of the FA Vase on Saturday, by they needed extra time to beat Kirby Muxloe at the Town Ground.

It took the visitors less than two minutes to take the lead, ex-Barrow Town forward Jamie Allen firing across Mark Frost and into the back of the net.

Muxloe had the majority of the play in the first half, three corners in the 17th minute showing the pressure they were enforcing.

On 27 minutes, Muxloe’s captain Stuart Verrall had the easiest chance of the day, tucking his chance away to double his side’s lead.

Kieran Debrouwer popped up just before half-time to remind everyone what he is capable of, taking a touch on the edge of the box before forcing his effort home.

Jared Holmes flashed a free kick just wide of the post in the 45th minute but Heanor ended up going in with a goal deficit.

Half time substitutions were made with Moran and Williams replaced by Stevenson and Benger.

Stevenson shot high with his weaker left foot when well placed in the 60th minute, then Debrouwer bagged his second of the match in the 62nd, turning with skill to beat a defender he despatched the ball with power.

Benger headed over from a corner in the 90th minute, with neither side able to add to their score so extra time was signalled.

In the 94th minute, right-back Josh Raven went on a mazy run and his shot at the end of it narrowly missed the target.

Wallace nearly bagged his first goal for the club in the 99th minute, his effort out of the reach of the goalkeeper but also just missing the target.

In the 101st minute, Debrouwer should have grabbed his fifth hat-trick of the season, his shot crashing off the underside of the bar but he soon managed that incredible record when, in the 103rd minute, he rose high at the back post to head a Benger cross home.

Benger then grabbed Heanor’s fourth goal of the day in the 114th minute, his back-header from a long Stevenson throw catching out the Muxloe defence.

n This Saturday, the Lions are at home to Pickering Town (3pm kick-off).
