BBFC II 3-4 Peche Hill

Two goals from Frazer Discala and one from Aaron Davies saw BBFC seconds take a 3-1 lead after just 15 minutes.

It was however a lead that they failed to hold onto as a strong Peche Hill, featuring players with county league experience rallied to take all 3 points.

A strong start by the home side with a front three pressing high up the pitch on a sweltering day saw Discala open the scoring on 5 minutes with a arrowhead strike from 20 yards into the bottom corner.

Peche Hill equalised barely two minutes later after the harshest of harsh penalties awarded by the Ref for handball.

That didn’t throw the Baptists out of their stride and the high press was continuing to cause the away team problems.

Frazer scored again and three minutes later Aaron got in on the act to make it 3-1. The Baptists could now smell the three points that would secure Div 2 status next season.

Peche Hill were getting stronger and as the Baptists defence dropped deeper chances were being created. A combination of resolute defending and a little luck meant that the Baptists goals was intact until the last kick of the half when Peche Hill scored to make it 3-2.

Peche Hill scored again as the game resumed to bring the scores level. The Baptists regrouped and started to play some good football, again taking the game to Peche Hill.

As both sides tired in the heat, chances were missed at both ends. A free kick was awarded to Peche Hill wide of the 18 yard box in the last quarter. A lofted ball into the box was left by all and with the keeper stuck on his line, the ball found the net unchallenged.

All 3 points to Peche Hill, but with Hollington wining away to Wittersham, it’s Wittersham who are relegated and BBFC live to fight another day in ESFL Div 2.
