Three Bridges 1st beat Guernsey 4 - 3

Following a wretched run of home defeats, Bridges at last gain three precious point against fellow strugglers, Guernsey

This was a game of quality strikes, excellent goalkeeping and sloppy mistakes in almost equal measure.

Guernsey broke the deadlock after only five minutes when Angus Mackay's swerving shot from distance veered away from Mark Fox, but Steve Sargent almost grabbed an instant reply only to see his shot deflected over the bar.

It took until the 21st minute for Bridges to grab the equaliser when a corner was only half cleared. Jack Rowe-Hurst's effort was blocked but skipper Jamie Crellin stabbed the loose ball home. Soon after, a free kick by Sargent ended with Dominic Toussaint's header being brilliantly tipped to safety by Guernsey keeper Josh Addison.

Whilst Rowe-Hurst provided a number of excellent crosses for the home side, it was Addison who was keeping the visitors in contention as he tipped over a goal-bound header from Crellin and made another good save to deny Hakeem Adelakun.

However, Hakeem Adelakun was not to be denied and when a half clearance came his way four minutes before half time, he struck a delightful volley home. The half finished with Bridges youngsters Rowe-Hurst, Ned Pierre and Michael Wilson all involved in a good move that ended with Addison holding on to Wilson's shot.

Bridges' Achilles heel continues to be the start of the second half as within fifteen seconds of the restart Guernsey were level as Matt Loaring beat Pierre on the left and crossed for an unmarked Jake Andrews to leave Fox with no chance.

Rowe-Hurst had a shot blocked whilst Fox had to be alert to tip round a snap effort by Paris Pereira but Bridges were back in front on 60 minutes when a poor back pass and a rare slip by Addison allowed Tony Garrod to walk the ball into an empty net.

At that point the goal was against the run of play, but Addison was the busier keeper for a while and his fellow defenders seemed to block every Bridges effort, notably denying Rowe-Hurst after an excellent run and shot.

Now it was the turn of Guernsey to net against the run of play as Pierre was adjudged to have pushed in the box, allowing Jake Andrews to deliver the perfect penalty after 74 minutes.

Back came Bridges with Toussaint and Allan Tait both seeing efforts blocked before the homesters were awarded a free kick in the 83rd minute. Up stepped Hakeem Adelakun to score a wonderful goal that even Addison could do nothing about.

Both Garrod and Kieron Djilali were wide as chances continued to come Bridges' way, whilst it was almost inevitable that the last word should go to Addison with another superb save to keep out Tait but at least it wasn't enough to prevent Bridges from taking all three points.
