2nd May 2006 - BCII vs. Argash
BCII 6-1 Argash
BC2 almost, almost,
secured third spot in the league last night, coming from a goal behind to smash
I say almost but unless
they lose their final game against Inter by at least 22 goals, it’s theirs - and
ensures that at least one Bunky team finish in the top three for something
approaching the 10th consecutive season.
It was a mixed night for the
Club, however, as the earlier clash between Inter Minan and MK United saw Inter
triumph 3-2 in an ill-tempered affair, (two red cards for United) meaning United
yielded the Div. 1 title to Athletico Shenley and Inter moved ahead of BC1, who
Our congratulations to
Athletico of course, who finish top in both leagues, but let’s turn our
attention to the fine display of footballing prowess BC2 demonstrated in their
penultimate match of the season …
Tactical genius saw Rogers
make some positional changes through the enforced absence of Biggsio (cold) and
Danny (ankle), dropping Daz to the back alongside Justin, Gaz playing a deep
midfield role and Rogers tucked in behind Ben. Ritchie A. took up his position
between the sticks and Russ, Sean and Disco kept the bench warm.
BC2 started brightly,
working the ball well and were regularly testing the Argash ‘keeper when they
were caught mid way through the first half as Inter broke, scoring with their
first shot of the match.
Undaunted, BC2 continued to
play some excellent football with Rogers and Gaz knocking the ball around, Ben
tirelessly creating space up front, Daz pushing on from deep and Justin holding
a strong defensive line and the equaliser was well deserved when Rogers
collected a pass from Daz, skipped a few challenges and coolly planted the ball
into the far corner.
Within just a couple of
minutes BC2 went ahead as Ben made it first to a long ball and just did enough
to steer the ball back into Gaz’s path who rifled it into the top the corner.
Second half changes saw Russ
and Sean both enter the game and for once, the subs fit easily into the
formation and it was Sean who made it 3-1 after Daz had chased a lost cause down
the left, won the challenge and pulled it back to Gaz who slipped it through for
Sean to bury.
3-1 became 4-1 when Bunky’s
sustained pressure was too much for Argash and Justin this time won the ball in
the opposite corner, played the ball back to Gaz who’s initial shot was blocked
but he hit the rebound first time into the far corner.
Sean added his second with
another well taken goal and Rogers, not to be outdone, grabbed his second as he
collected the ball from Sean, cut inside a defender and found the goal opened up
in front of him. He was able to pick his spot and the ‘keeper had no chance.
In between Ritchie A. never
put foot wrong and the few times that BC2 were exposed, usually on a
counter-attack, Ritchie was able to deflect the efforts away with a superb
Bunky’s have shown over the
last few weeks the value they offer to the league and any potential new sponsors
(again in attendance last night), and also the benefit the reinvigorated
training sessions bring.
A win against Inter next
week will be sweet revenge and should be a formality on this form and following
the 8-2 drubbing BC2 dished out to them earlier in the season.
