24th May 2005 - BCI V's MK ED

BC1 regained their rightful spot in third place last night with an emphatic 4-1 demolition of MK Ed, giving
them a real lesson in football along the way.

Playing with their first choice line up for only the second time this season, Bunky’s took the lead shortly
after kick-off when a woeful shot from Ritchie Moss hit Sean and deflected past the MK Ed. ‘keeper
into the net.

A few minutes later a Gaz was able to break down the right and as Rolfey dragged the defence wide,
the square ball found Ritchie unmarked in the middle who struck the ball first time into the near corner.
(Now, this type of shot is not always easy, as Gaz will testify, as he later struck one well over the bar
from a similar position during the friendly thrashing Bunkies’ handed out to Athletico Shenley at the
end of the evening. I know, I know, they had only just played – blah, blah, blah – but don’t forget
Bunkies’ had enjoyed their post match few pints and pork scratchings, so fairs, fair!). 

Anyway, back to the game. MK Ed. did manage to score just at the end of the first half as they won
possession in the middle and the glare from the sun unsighted Daz at the wrong minute. 

For a few moments, it looked as though the Bunkies’ bogey team were about to strike again as their
tall left back, wearing his traditional pads and thinning hair (you know who you are) collected the
ball, span, span some more, tried to run, couldn’t, didn’t …. and was probably saved from collapsing as
the ref. blew for half time.

Second half ….. the game suddenly became a bit more physical and although the rugby type challenge
by Mark Rogers was a bit much – most of the other stoppages the ref. imposed seemed unwarranted and
a bit harsh. 

Bunkies broke again and again, although Daz. was now also being called into action as they let MK Ed.
in on a couple of occasions. Sean, Rolfey and Gaz all hit the woodwork before Sean finally managed to
seal the victory, grabbing his second after good work through the middle and the result was beyond
doubt when he grabbed his third hat-trick of the season, just before the end with a fine goal from a
fine through ball.

 BC1 are now three points ahead of Crownhill – but with an inferior goal difference, they cannot afford
to drop points.
