Bridges beaten by Eagles in pre-season test

Three Bridges 1st 0 - 3 Crystal Palace

A strong Palace squad finally proved too much for a Bridges side that had defended stoutly with keeper Kieron Thorp in particularly fine form.
Two goals in the last 11 minutes from substitute Jospeh Hungbo proved decisive in the final analysis, but Bridges can take a lot of pride from denying their opponents for so long with fitness perhaps finally proving telling.

A header by Giovanni McGregor after only 8 minutes suggested that this might prove a difficult afternoon for Martin Dynan's young side (with four U23s of their own in the squad), but Bridges almost equalised within minutes as Dan Da Costa e Silva held off a defender and managed to get in a shot that was blocked at the last moment.

Thorp made an excellent block to deny a second for McGregor, but Bridges' defence, apart from one minor misunderstanding, looked compact and determined as they forced Palace to snatch at the chances that came their way.

Thorp however was the busier of the keepers and amongst a string of fine saves was a swift double to block one effort from Sean Robertson and then hold onto a follow up from Hungbo.

However, after 79 minutes a near cut back found Joseph Hungbo to net easily, but there was still time for Thorp to make another excellent diving save to deny Lewis Bryon.

Bridges deserved a consolation goal and almost nabbed one when Ami Glloga slipped the ball through neatly to Connor French, whose curling effort was well held by Tupper.

In the very last minute, the third goal was probably a bit harsh on Bridges, but it came with a swift break down the left that caught Bridges exposed with Levi Lumeka supplying the final telling ball for another simple finish by Joseph Hungbo.
