Bec 3 vs Highbury 3
The thirds arrived early on Sunday for the usual cleaning/maintenance of Ernest Bevin before the arrival of Highbury.
A difficult reverse game had Bec knowing they’d face a tough challenge. After a conversation and debate, we tried to keep divisions as similar as previously and off we went.
The details evade me, but I remember we shot well out the gates into a 4-1 lead. However Highbury had other ideas and kept pegging away. Half time came with the score at 6-4.
The second half saw Highbury start the better with accurate shooting and tight defence. The thirds never gave up, but the goals started to dry up and Highbury snuck into a lead. The last few minutes saw Highbury extend their lead as we took chances to win the ball back for the attack.
All in all a tough, but enjoyable game. The thirds will be looking to finish off the season strongly with their final two games.
Thanks to Craig for giving up his time to reff.
