Bridgend [1-1] Bristol & West 2
Report by Jack Kingshot
The 2’s traveled to Bridgend, hoping to continue their winning start to the season.
Josh Cooper opened his account for B & W scoring after a dissecting pass from Kian off a swift counter attack. Kian continued trying to create chances, raising some eyebrows as he attempted to pass when faced with an open goal, after he rounded the keeper, Bridgend’s defender performed miracles to somehow clear this over the bar.
Bridgend’s bombardment of long balls paid dividends as their striker latched onto one missed by B&W before he bundled it over the line.
B&W now had their chance to clear off the line. Gaz well and truly getting his body behind the ball off a flick from a short. Whether the ball hit stick or head the umpires will never be sure, B&W escaped with only a long corner given.
Rob picked up MOM for another complete performance at the back. Jack was awarded DOD after his baby face, resulted in him being the only ID’d at match teas.
