Friendly ends in on-pitch brawl as Owls lose

Wednesday went down 2-1 at Mansfield in our latest pre-season friendly on Tuesday evening, with the game ending in an on-the-field punch-up.

Mal Benning gave the Stags the lead just before half-time and they made it two on 67 minutes when CJ Hamilton’s cross deflected off Adam Reach.

Reach reduced the arrears 18 minutes from time with an excellent strike but that was the end of the scoring and the match finished with several players involved in a brawl following a tackle by Fernando Forestieri.

Dawson, Palmer, Lees, van Aken, Fox, Reach, Pelupessy, Bannan, Hutchinson, Forestieri, Nuhiu.
