20th Sep 2005 - BCI Vs. MK ED

Bunky's 2 - 1 MK ED

Bunky Chollox stormed to the top of the league last night following an emphatic pounding of MK Ed! ….. 
seemed like such a good way to start the first match report of the new season that I thought I would use it anyway ……

In reality, however, Bunky Chollox scrambled three points with a last gasp winner as they struggled to
break down a defensive MK Ed. (Although they did manage to go top for a few minutes following the victory,
as this was the ‘early’ kick-off).

Summer signing ‘Disco’ was the only change from last year, as he took his place between the posts for
his full debut and Bunky’s started brightly with good possession and plenty of confidence

Amidst the current speculation that top flight football has become ‘boring’, MK Ed. clearly decided to
ignore critics and deployed a 5-0-0 formation, intending to frustrate BC1 and hit on the counter-attack,
and it so nearly paid off!

With a packed final third of the pitch, BC1 struggled to find the opening to capitalise on their superiority
and as the first half wore on seemed to run out of ideas, leaving individual players to try and create their
 own chances 

Inevitably, this drew the Bunky defence out as well and when the ball broke loose, MK Ed. made a rare
attack. With BC1 losing all positioning, a well struck shot somehow found its way through and beyond Disco
into the net.

Bunky's continued to plug away and towards the end of the half, Rolfey stole the ball and played a
short pass that finally allowed Sean the time and space to control the ball and steer it past the ‘keeper
to level the score.

Bunky’s clearly hadn’t learnt, however, and it took a couple of suspect challenges from Rolfey to
prevent MK Ed. increasing their lead as the defence was again caught short - but at the break the
scores remained level at 1-1.

The second half was much better. Bunky continued to retain possession but this time
the movement and passing was incisive and it led to a barrage of opportunities, with Rolfey,
Rogers (on as a sub) and Sean all hitting the woodwork – as well as the MK Ed. ‘keeper having to
pull out a few excellent saves.

Bunky’s rolled on the subs and brought on new boy Danny (and his amazing techni-coloured long sleeved
dream-shirt) for his debut appearance and it was seconds from the end when he collected the ball
in the middle, squared it to Gaz, who rolled it on to Rogers to finish the game.

Relief, more than anything, seemed to be the overriding reaction as Rogers finished in typical style,
placing the ball into the far corner to give BC1 their first opening day victory since 2000/2001.
