25th April 2006 - BCI vs. Inter Minan

BCI 5-3 Inter Minan

BC1 finished their league campaign on a high last night with a convincing victory over Inter Minan and replacing them in third spot on goal difference. Although Inter still have a game in hand, it’s against MK United, themselves looking for that final win to seal the title for the second consecutive year, so promises to be an interesting game.

 Bunky’s only change at the start of the match saw Danny replace Rolfey in midfield, and, playing in front of potential new sponsors, BC1 looked relaxed, confident and knocked the ball around well.

 Both Sean and Rich went close in the opening few minutes but pushing forward Bunky’s lacked numbers in support and when breaking from defence there were huge gaps in the Inter midfield that went unexploited.

 The first goal, when it finally came shortly before half time, saw a what could happen when Bunky’s did make use of the space and as Danny released the ball, Gaz went through to place the ball into the far corner from the right.

 Second half saw much of the same although some wonderful opportunities and approach play were wasted through poor finishing, particularly from Rich Moss, who was instrumental in many of the attacks, but couldn’t seem to convert anything.

 Despite some of the intricate play the second goal, coming mid-way through the half, had an element of fortune as Rich won the ball on the edge of the Inter area and it broke loose to Sean who swivelled a struck a fine first time effort that flew into the net.

 This was when the game really livened up as Inter attacked straight from kick-off and when they somehow managed to squeeze the ball past Russ from the corner, their forwards were first to react and the resulting shot beat Disco at his near post.

 Again BC1 continued to knock the ball around and when Gaz put the ball into the net from a free-kick on the edge of the area, there was considerable disbelief as the Ref. disallowed the goal and awarded a re-take for pushing. Fortunately, Inter hadn’t learnt, Sean again laid the ball back and Gaz scored his second of the night with a shot into the opposite corner.

 Immediately from the kick-off, however, Inter bore down on the Bunky defence again and once more reduced the deficit as a rather tame shot beat Disco and rolled in off the far post, this time from the opposite side of the pitch.

 BC1 kept going and when the Inter ‘keeper came rushing out of the area, a penalty was awarded and all eyes were on one player as Gaz stepped up to strike the ball home and claim his first Bunky hat-trick, to extend the lead again to two goals.

 This time, however, Bunky’s held firm and shortly after they scored the pick of the bunch, working the ball out from defence down the right hand side, where Sean knocked it into Danny who turned, and with the deftest of touches, flicked the ball past the stranded ‘keeper with the outside of his boot.

Still Inter kept coming though and there was time for one more as a mis-kick completely wrong footed Disco (nearly leaving him with a permanent falsetto voice) and somehow rolling into the net.

 Too little, too late and Bunky’s ended the season with a well deserved victory, but only their third of the year. In fact, since the Christmas break, they have taken just 9 points from a possible 24, dropping 15, which is the same number (should MK United win their game in hand) that they end the season off top spot … 

This leaves just the Charity Cup now on 16th May for BC1 to earn some silverware but hopefully, this victory is a return to form and they may just be able to surprise a few yet.
