Leamington Hibs 2 - 1 Bishops Itchington
BIFC out of time.....
Bishops travelled to Newbold to play newly promoted Leam Hibs. Without Simmo and Gaz Williams who were unavailble, Johnny B got his first start and Stefan was recalled to the line up.
Hibs started stronger and were soon 1-0 up after a runner at the back post wasn't picked up and lashed high into the net. Bishops didnt really wake up from this and were soon 2-0 down, a mix up between Smiler and Joey allowed Kitchen to finish past Nathan to make it 2-0.
After this the game was pretty even, Bishops started to create more chances and as half time blew, Bishops were on top slightly.
After half time, again the game was pretty evenly contested. As the last 3rd approached, Bishops began to get on top and Hibs were pinned back. Charlie Symons
helped set up Joey to make it 2-1 and an equaliser beckoned as Bishops threw bodies forward.
Trinder looked like he had a chance to even the scores up, after Symons again put him through but as he approached the keeper 1-1 the ref blew the fulltime whistle.
Very much a game of 3 thirds, with Hibs on top at the start, Bishops on top at the end. A good game, where a point for each would have been about fair.
