Ian between the sticks, Swinners and Martyn in the middle of the park, Rich
running about up front Russ and Ben (in for Gaz) keeping guard on the D.
But enough of that…and pay attention.
First and foremost...Russ scored.
Yep, Russ Scored.
I'm not sh*tting you! Seriously!
We have witnesses! The rest of the team, most of BC I and of course the ref
will vouch for it honest!
It was a fairly relaxed match, players cautious with their footing on the
half frozen pitch. MK ED had their trademark 'guy who doesn't have a club shirt
so plays in colours to match the ref.' but at least it wasn't their main striker
this week. A slow start from both teams, but the game ebbed and flowed ok.
Swinners opened the BC account with a nicely struck mid ranger early in the
second half which also served to raise MK ED's game a little. A few good attacks
on the BC goal were bravely snuffed out by Ian, back from a twisted knee
incident from two weeks ago.
Calm defending and fluid movement from BC game them the lion's share of
possession, and an uncharacteristic forward pressurising game plan kept MK ED
pinned down in their half quite well. An opportunistic run up the right wing
from Russ put lead to some scrambling defensive play from MK ED, a loose ball
drifted over and Russ dinked it passed the keeper to a roaring crowd. Only his
second ever league goal in 13 seasons was celebrated in style and it was 2-0.
MK ED put on a brave face and brought the game back to Bunkys, but to no
avail. A well worked, and desperately needed 3 points for BC III for sure.
