Bedfont Sports v Horley Town
3 G joy again
Another visit to opponents with a 3G surface and another win and impressive display.
Our hosts have had a fantastic start to the season and sat above us prior to kick off and a tough encounter was expected.
Early on we were guilty of missing two fine chances to take the lead , but Bedfont Sports will rightly suggest that they to could have scored from a number of well delivered crosses . At nil nil just before the break the fact that the two evenly matched sides were level was no surprise , the fact that there had been no goals was. As thoughts turned to the half time team talks Horley took the lead with a fine finish from Alex Barbary
Clearly the opening exchanges of the second half were going to be crucial and it was us who stole a march with goals from Karl Parker
and Kerran Boylan
within the first quarter of an hour.
Opponents of this quality dont go away easily and remained honest throughout ensuring that even with a three goal lead we could not be complacent. Unusually there was still a feel that another goal was needed and it came from another Jack Poplett
header with Twenty minutes to go. To be fair that was that at this stage as with the clock ticking down and the determination to win evident in every challenge there was no way back . With the target now on keeping a clean sheet that was denied us as the game entered stoppage time when a lucky break of the ball allowed the on rushing home striker to slot home confidently.
