Three Bridges U21 1-2 Hassocks

Late consolation goal is not enough for Bridges U21s

Three Bridges Development Squad came up against a strong, organised Hassocks outfit that were full of confidence following their season opening 5-1 win.

Hassocks started strongly and dominated early proceedings. On 18th minute they won a free kick just outside the box which was converted to make the score 1-0.

The Bridges boys rallied back with the attacking trio of Dan Lombardo, Mason Doughty and Lewis Croal combining to put the Hassocks back line under pressure with some good combination play. A number of corners were won by Bridges including one which Connor Purkis failed to convert, hitting the cross bar as their keeper failed to claim the cross, and a six yard box scramble ensued leaving the goal open.

Josh Rose made a few smarts stops from long range to keep Bridges in the game as Hassocks applied heavy pressure. That pressure told as on the 44th minutes Bridges got caught open near the edge of the box leaving Rose exposed to a chip finish for Hassock to go 2-0 up half time.

The second half was a stronger performance with the lads dominating the midfield and putting the Hassocks back line under pressure but Rose had to be called on a couple of times, making some good stops.

The introduction of William Glenn, playing against his former team, gave Bridges a bit more impetus but they could not get that breakthrough as Hassocks dug in resiliently. However, that resilience was finally broken deep into added time as a corner was powerfully converted by Sam Gallagher on the 95 mins.

The goal proved to be a consolation as the referee blew for full time soon after the restart.

MOM: DAN LOMBARDO - lead the front line well, full of running and used is experience to keep the team going.
