Wet behind the ears Wealdstone striker, Greg Ngoyi, went from villian to hero and back to villain again as he took centre stage in their 2-1 Ryman Premier victory over local rivals Hendon on Saturday.
Trailing to James Busby's first half goal Stones sorely lacked a spark up front, but got it and then some after the introduction of Ngoyi from the bench after 55 minutes.
His tame spot kick was saved moments after entering the fray following a poor Hendon challenge on Danny Spendlove. However, he more than atoned for that with a say in Ryan Ashe's equaliser before heading home a brilliant winner from Davis Haule's precision cross.
Sean Thomas then made his second successive penalty save, denying Haule's younger brother Brian, before Ngoyi received his marching orders for a needless lunge on Hendon substitute Sam Collins. Ngoyi may have afforded himself a wry smile in the dressing room upon hearing he was named man of the match, yet he was not the only one to take an early bath. James Burgess was already walking off the pitch when the referee showed him a red card for a woeful two footed tackle on Lee Chappell as the game ended in high drama after a non-descript first half.
