In this game arranged for life-long fan Bernie Watson, Beesotted and Hey Jude played a freindly game, on a freezing day!
Beesotted had the best of the chances early on and should have built up a very healthy lead, twice hitting the post and having shots cleared off of the line. There first chance was hit against the bar and then from two yards out Gaz Thomas (playing for Beesotted) failed to score
an open goal, but with all fairness it was a great save by Tommy in goal. Their first goal came from a looping effort, which sailed in over Tommy. Fluke or not, it looked good!
Hey Jude then had a couple of chances that fell to Minky, a scramble in the box, and a long range 20 yard effort.
Then Hey Jude started to play a bit and got the equaliser i suppose we deserved! A great through ball by Paul F set Minky through on goal and he
sweetly tucked it home for his 2nd of the season! 1-1!
We should of taken the lead just before half time when Rhys' corner caused havok in the box only for it to be scrambled away.
Then a poor (sorry!) goal kick from Tommy, hit Jimbee who controlled well, but struck it from 25 yards and it went miles wide. It looked easier to take it on.
At half time the match looked even with no one knowing who was going to win.
In the second half Beesotted started to control the game. With a cross from the right, Jim was five yards out with an open goal, but sliced it wide! Oh dear!
Then Beesotted took a deserved lead, when "a former pro" battled past 4 players and brilliantly slotted it into the bottom corner. Not really
a lot else to say. Not the greatest of games but a good one for the neutral ;-).
So we look forward to the replay next year, hopefully in sunnier and warmer climates!
