FRICKLEY Athletic’s unbeaten run of six games came to an end on Saturday when a last-minute strike consigned them to an Evo-Stik Premier Division defeat at Marine.

Peter Rinkcavage’s Blues enjoyed the better chances but the game didn’t come to life until the last seven minutes.

Athletic’s patience was rewarded on 83 minutes when Ollie Ryan’s cross was turned in by Ryan Mallon.

However, the lead lasted only three minutes and Thomas Moore’s fine strike from 20-yards levelled matters.

Frickley appeared to be heading for a point but in the final minute Neil Harvey shot on the turn to clinch all three points for the hosts.
