Old Bristolians3 3 – BAC 7 (04/03/17)

Written by: Dave ‘injured hand’ Gardner

Buoyant from their 7-1 win the previous week, BAC were determined to continue their winning ways.

It didn’t take long for BAC to take control and with some quick runs by the midfield; the BAC forwards found themselves with opportunities in the D. Perseverance paid off and by half time Tinny had put away two goals and Sledger the third.

The second half saw a slight drop in performance and Old B’s took their opportunity to pressure the BAC defence. The team dug deep and although they calmly fought off a number attacks, Old B’s converted a penalty corner and an impressive straight strike at the top of the D put them on the score table. This put the fire back into BAC and with some clever play in the D, playing the ball around the keeper BAC stormed away to a 7-3 victory.

The result was a great team performance. Calm, disciplined defence, great runs and holding of the ball from midfield and creative play in the D from the forwards made BAC unbeatable. This was reflected in the Player of the Match awards with five players receiving nominations.

Player of the Match:
