Bridges win first match of 2017

The two bottom sides in the division battled it out in the hope that 2017 is going to be kinder to them than the previous year, and it was Bridges who came out on top, although they had a few shaky moments of their own against a side with a new Manager and a few faces old and new!

Mark Fox was called upon to make a decent block to deny Evander Lopez whilst Kieran Djilali shot just wide of the far post after good interplay with the always busy Tony Garrod. And it was these two who combined for the opening goal after 25 minutes as Djilali set up GARROD to slam the ball past Oneal Garnes.

Garrod was then just wide from Devon Fender's cross before a delightful piece of skill by Jack Rowe-Hurst finished with a 39th minute low cross that was tucked in by a delighted DJILALI.

But the old Bridges frailties of conceding early in the second half continued as it took Godalming just four minutes to reduce the arrears after the restart. Skipper Darren Wheeler's corner was only half cleared and JACK MAZZONE stabbed it home.

Fortunately Bridges took just six minutes to restore the lead when Steve Sargent's perfectly placed corner was headed home by Jamie Crellin, although the home side felt that their keeper had been impeded in the process.

Fox had to push away a free kick from Wheeler and was also grateful to see Mazzone fire wide, but Bridges continued to be dangerous on the break and almost added to their tally when Garrod closed down Garnes and saw his shot cleared off the line by Chris Musgrove.
On the plus side for Bridges was a welcome return for Matt Whitehead as he took over at left back for 35 minutes, but the game ended sourly for the visitors when a challenge on Crellin led to the Bridges skipper being stretchered off.
