2 penalties for the Blues meant the the points were shared…


Following on from back to back defeats in the League Met faced a difficult fixture at Beaconsfield on Monday night with an Arctic wind blowing down the pitch. Facing the wind in the first half Met started brightly taking the game to their hosts but on 15 minutes Beaconsfield opened the scoring through leading scorer Minhas who escaped his marker to head home at the back post from a cross from the right. Undeterred, Met resumed their attacking play but missed a series of good chances until the 40th minute when an under pressure home defence bundled over a Met player with a penalty being awarded. After a long delay for treatment to Anderson, Herson Alves had his penalty saved only for Jasper Mather to emerge from a melee of players to bundle the ball home for the Met equaliser.No sooner had the game resumed than Beaconsfield were back in front when Granville finished smartly following a breakaway attack.

The second half was a reversal of the first half with Beaconsfield, buoyed by their lead, throwing everything at the Met defence forcing Liam Beach into two good saves within 2 minutes followed by a fortunate escape when a shot hit the post and Beach was able to gather the rebound. Despite changing their system through substitutions Met remained under pressure with the home side hitting the bar with a header on 67 minutes. But gradually, in their adjusted shape,Met began to have more of the play and on 76 minutes Josh Keeya forced the home keeper into making a diving save. On 83 minutes Met got their reward for their never say die spirit when Jasper Mather was bundled over as he carried the ball in the area. Archy Taylor confidently drove the ball home from the spot to earn Met a well deserved point in a 2-2 draw.
