Peacehaven & T.
1 Three Bridges Res.
The Reserve Team made their exit
from the Intermediate Cup after putting in a
battling performance against a strong Three Bridges
The first half had been quite an
even affair, but the breakthrough came on the stroke
of half-time. Three Bridges were awarded a penalty
after Aaron Birch had been judged to have fouled a
Bridges player inside the box, and Michael Death
converted the resultant kick.
Callum Wiltshire had to be
substituted at half time and he was replaced by Matt
Lago as Peacehaven changed to an attacking
formation, looking to turn the result around.
As they pushed forward after the
interval, Bridges were able to catch the home side
on the break with another goal from Death, and
another attempt taking a cruel deflection off Aaron
Birch to put them 3 in front.
Death then went on to complete his
hat-trick with another breakaway goal, and
Peacehaven were eventually rewarded for their
efforts 3 minutes from time. A good interchange of
passing resulted in Matt Rozzier firing in a low
cross which Michael Page ran on to an clipped the
ball in for Peacehaven's consolation goal.
Speaking on Sunday,
Caretaker-Manager John Hogben said, "They all
battled really hard against a very good side. Their
heads never dropped and they fought to the end.
Perhaps we were beaten by a better side - but I
think the result flattered them"
