18th April 2006 - BCII vs. Denbigh

BCII 3-3 Denbigh

In the opening few minutes it looked for all the world like Bunky’s would be dishing out a thumping to Denbigh, putting their season back on course after an indifferent few weeks that has seen them take just 5 points from the last 12 (and cast adrift in the title race) - but unfortunately it was not to be.

 Despite their superior technical ability, Bunky’s failed to capitalise on chances created, with Rogers, Ben and Daz all going close (by which we mean squandering chances they would ordinarily take) and paid the price, despite a solid start from Ritchie A. in goal, when Denbigh scored against the run of play from close range to lead 1-0 at the break.

 Bunky’s still looked relatively comfortable, however, but when Rogers hit the post twice and Ben’s had a first time effort blocked, it looked as though it might be one of those nights, although in fairness to Denbigh, Ritchie did have to pull a couple of excellent saves out of the bag, including one long range effort beaten away with his outstretched left leg. 

With a full turnout, following the earlier EGM, Bunky’s lined up with Ritchie A. in goal, Jus and Neil in defence, Rogers and Ben in midfield and Daz up front. The bench, packed with an embarrassing array of talent, included Disco, Gaz, Russ, Rolfey, Danny and Sean. 

Yet despite this, early in the second half, as BC2 pressed for an equaliser, Denbigh again broke and left free on the counter-attack, scored a second to make it 2-0 seemingly wrapping up the points.

 It was then, however, that Daz kicked into gear, pulling one back almost immediately with a close range finish and then equalising a couple of minutes later with a scrappy goal at the second attempt. 

Bunky’s came unstuck again shortly afterwards though, after Denbigh again produced some fine efforts on the break, and despite one being pushed away by Ritchie A. at full stretch and another just going wide, their luck didn’t hold out as Denbigh grabbed a third.

 Fortunately BC2 hit back and Daz, receiving a pass from the left, skipped past a defender before slotting the ball into the corner, to score his 9th of the season and earn a draw.

 Overall, though, it was a disappointing draw …. yet the spirit and determination that saw a point won should provide some consolation., particularly after being behind for most of the match.
