Bishops traveled all the way up the road to play Harbury in the first game back after the festive period. In what was the first game in what seemed an eternity, Bishops lined up strong with players back from injuries etc.
Bishops started the game at a high tempo, not letting Harbury settle and also creating plenty of chances. Johnny and Jordan scored early on, and truth be told it should have been more. 2 clear cut penalties were not given and Adsy in the Harbury goal made a couple of good saves with Bishops unable to add to their 2 goal tally.
It was inevitable that Harbury would react and after our initial onslaught the game evened out, with both teams creating. Harbury reduced the deficit when Nathan's goalkick went to a Harbury head which set Tommo free to score.
Half time came and went, with Harbury having a little spell of possession as Bishops tired with the Christmas puddings lying a little heavy. With substitutions from both sides now taking place the game broke down slightly, and Harbury equalized through Ed after rounding Nathan.
A very good game to watch as both teams went at it, but felt like 2 points dropped rather than 1 point gained.
Frustratingly, there was no game next week to try and build from this.
