Bridges crash to heavy defeat

A poor defensive performance saw Three Bridges completely swept aside by struggling Herne Bay. The side who started the day in 18th place put five fast Bridges, four of which came in an exceptionally poor second half for Three Bridges who are still winless in 2019.

Herne Bay started the game on the front foot and within 7 minutes they were ahead. A high bouncing ball was sent over the Bridges defence, Joe Tennent looking to be able to deal with it but got caught in two minds on whether to head back to James Shaw or clear the ball. The defender lost his footing which allowed Tahjae Anderson to simply run through and place it past Shaw.

Bridges reacted quickly and really should have been level in the 10th minute. Good work from Connor French towards the goal line then saw him cross low and square to George Gaskin in acres of space, but he spooned his shot over the bar, although the ball may well have taken a bobble as he hit it.

Gaskin had another chance in the 22nd minute when the ball fell to him in the box. He had time to shift it onto his left foot but instead he hooked his shot over the bar. Bridges had the ball in the back of the net a minute later as Gaskin and French linked up on the edge of the box, French drove towards the keeper from Gaskin’s flick but was deemed offside..

Finally, Bridges got the equaliser they deserved on 29 minutes after a poor Herne Bay corner was cleared. Dean Gunner, making his home debut, swept a long ball up field and Ibby Akanbi was too fast for the Herne Bay defence and he sped through on goal to slide the ball past the on rushing Simon Overland. Bridges nearly went into half time ahead after French found himself with the ball at his feet just inside the box on the right wing, shifted it onto his right and hit a fierce shot but Overland got down quick to make a brilliant save.

Three Bridges started the second half far from how they would have liked. Ten minutes into the half, Ronald Sobowale found himself on the edge of the box and somehow managed to fumble his way through three Bridges defenders who failed to challenge him and he smashed the ball into the bottom corner.

It got worse for Bridges just four minutes later. Raphe Brown had too much space on the left which gave him time to pick out an unmarked Tahjae Anderson in the box who simply nodded into the bottom corner. Herne Bay added another in the 72nd minute when a corner was not cleared and this allowed Harry Miller to strike the ball along the floor and James Shaw couldn’t stop it from going into the back of the net..

Bay got their fifth in the 83rd minute. Ronald Sobowale did very well to round Tennent and drive towards goal, he was slowly falling but managed to stay on his feet long enough to square to Tahjae Anderson who tapped into an empty net to complete his hat-trick.

A terrible afternoon for Bridges who fall to 14th in the league.

Bridges will continue the search for their first win when they face Sittingbourne at home on Tuesday, 26th February with a 19:45 pm KO.
