Leaders claim late goals in 2-0 win
Romford saw their 12-match unbeaten run in Ryman One North ended by leaders East Thurrock last night.
Late goals from Kye Ruel and Max Cornhill led Rocks to a 2-0 success at Mill Field as Boro suffered only their second league defeat of the campaign.
Danny Rafis had a first-half header ruled out for offside, but Boro needed his brother, goalie Adam, to make several fine saves to keep the scoreline blank.
As the temperature plummeted the home side looked set to claim a hard-earned point, but Ruel broke out to broke the deadlock in the 77th minute and Cornhill headed in the second from a right-wing corner three minutes later to seal the points.
