29th March 2005 - BCII V's T&G


A stunning performance from the mighty Bunky's last night. The crowds were chanting 'Its just like watching Brazil'
as Ben put BC into an early lead after some neat footwork from Daz and Ben tucking it away with a first time shot.
2 minutes later Matty walked through their defence and placed a shot past the keeper and the crowds went delirious
wanting the glory Bunky boys to give them 10 before the night was out.

Things calmed down and the defence was solid as Richy was rarely tested and before long Ben popped up again to make it 3.
A brief glimmer of competition when some short ars*d monkey (I can give you Rich's address/number ...Ed) from the other
side was left to take a shot which took everyone by surprise and left Richy in goal with little option but to
pick up the ball from the back of the net. Shortly before half time, Matty was flagging but refused to leave the pitch
with only 1 goal under his belt. He turned on the style and swiftly made it 4:1 as Ray blew for Halftime.

The 2 glory boys made there halftime exit to a standing ovation and Matty and Ben were replaced with Richard and Gareth.
A couple of chances scorned by Richard in the second half looked like leaving the second half scoreless, but heavily
supported by a couple of lightening reaction saves from Richy in goal, keeping the opposition frustrated.
5 minutes remaining and the temptation for Matty to come back on the pitch to take all the votes for the evening
was all too much. A quick taken free kick from Rodgers straight to Matty, who placed it kindly into the corner of the net to
make him the first player this year to rack up a hat-trick in a Bunky's shirt (not exactly true.....Ed).

A few final attempts on goal from Gareth and Rodgers didn't effect the result, when finally the whistle went to end
what was a great performance. It wasn't until after the game did you realise what a wet and cold night it was,
as the performance from each individual on the pitch warmed the hearts and heads of the Bunky's faithful who
had witnessed a commanding 5-1 win.

And so, another bottom of the table clash ….


T&G are having a particularly poor season, just two wins so far, and must have been dreading the game against
the mighty Bunky’s, fired up after having played and/or witnessed and/or heard about one of their worst performances ever!


So, to kick-off ….


BC2 fielded an attacking side that saw Ritchie Armstrong retain his place in goal, Justiniho and Mark Rogers
at the back, Benaldo and Matty Rogers through the middle and the return of Dazza up front.


From the start, BC2 looked well up for this, with particular efforts from Daz and Ben in chasing down every ball
and every player and the Rogers boys playing with flair as they moved the ball around.


After just a few minutes, Justin won the ball, played it up the line to Daz, who turned and rolled
the ball across the area for Ben to strike home.


Seconds later, Matty made it two with a well struck shot, again from the right, before adding his second shortly
afterwards from the edge of the area, just knocking ball under the advancing goalie.


Although T&G pulled one back with one of their few excursions into BC territory, the margin was restored just
before half time when Benaldo added his second, again from close range after a parried save. Every goal was
created by Dazza, playing up front but using his strength and pace to create.


The second half saw Bunky’s take their foot off a bit and team changes didn’t help, but they never seemed
worried as Ritchie made up for last week with a string of fine saves before Matty capped a great performance
with his third – a second hat-trick since joining the club.


So, is it me, or are we either really bad or great? Can Bunky’s get this balanced, in order to try avoid humiliating
defeats against lower opposition? Last week, rubbish. This week, every player deserves 10/10 for their movement,
their awareness, their passing and their finishing.


Well done boys. It’s why we all follow the club so passionately. It’s what football is about and this performance,
similar to last week really (although for entirely different reasons), brought a tear to the eye …..
