Second Half Blitz Secures Second Victory In Succession

Three goals in 3 minutes and a last minute own goal secured a second victory of the season for the fired up home side.


Once again, an aggressive display saw a hungry Bishop Child's team take the game to a talented Meadowlane. Captain Finley once again took no prisoners and Aymen, who seemingly powered by batteries, owned the entire field. Their work rate enabled the home side to take an early lead though the visitors quickly hit back with a stylish goal of their own. In heavy conditions, both teams tried to play a passing game and shortly before half time the score became 2-2. It was at this point Bishop Child's were caught napping in defence and two late first half goals were conceded.


With the score at 2-4, changes were made at half time. Luca and Jayce were introduced and from the kick off it was clear that Bishop Child's wanted to attack. Two Messi style runs from substitute Luca provided him with two early second half goals to bring the scores level. It wasn't long before Corey made it 5-4 with his seventh goal of the season. 


Meadowlane however remained classy and produced a stunning stunning goal out of nothing to bring an open game to five goals each. With the game heading for a draw, a hopeful cross was sent into the Meadowlane penalty area. In an effort to clear the ball, an unfortunate Meadowlane defender guided the ball past his own goalkeeper gifting Bishop a narrow lead. 


With thy time running out, Meadowlane's impressive striker floated a shot towards Cameron's goal. The ball dipped viciously and hit the crossbar, rebounding into the grateful hands of the Bishop goalkeeper. The clearance brought about the final whistle and and an end to a truly entertaining game of football.
