Both teams play with a passing style and never changed their game plans and it made for a highly emotional, competitive and highly entertaining game.
We started the brighter and had BPR rattled at the back, this led to the opener. A looping ball up to Mikkael was brought down well by Mikkael before he put Bryn through. The out rushing keeper couldnt deal with Bryns never give up attitude and Bryn slotted the ball into the bottom corner while under pressure from the keeper and 2 defenders. 0-1
BPR stepped up their game, the goal kicked them into life and they short passing play caused us problems which lef to the scores being levelled.
Some nice short, sharp passing opened us up at the back and the BPR striker put the ball away calmly.
On the stroke of half time the BPR defender through his arm up and handled a cross to give away a penalty.
Mikkael stepped up and slotted it home yo the keepers left this time to put us back in the lead. 1-2
In the 3rd minute of added on time, we switch off at the back from a goal kick and the ball goes straight to their striker who fires it home and the ref blows for half time. 2-2
Second half and we become relentless. We have around 6/7 shots while piling on the pressure in the first 5 minutes but the BPR keeper makes great save after great save.
Matty is up and down the wing like a dog and Leo is completely bossing the centre of the park and breaks through a few times and in so unlucky not to score.
Affer some end to end stuff by both teams Leo breaks away with the ball, plays a one-two with Mikkael and then he unselfishly passes to Isaac who steers it into the top corner to put ud back in front for the 3rd time in the match. 2-3
We start ploughing the pressure from this and if not for the hard work from the BPR defenders and keeper, we would have scored a few more. Likewise at the other end, our defence keeps BPR at bay despite their great play amd teamwork.
Last minute and we get a free kick on the edge of the box. Mikkael curls it towards to far post but the defender heads it away, Dec picks it up and gives it back to Mikkael who crosses it to Bryn who beats the keeper and defender to the ball and bundles it home. 2-4
A great game of football played by 2 very respectful teams.
I wish BPR all the best for the season, it was great playing them today and I cant see any other teams going there and getting any change out of them! Very tough place to go and any points won there are severely earnt.
