Enjoy our match highlights and match report from Wednesday’s emphatic victory away at Callington on a wet evening.
The Gaffer’s Summary
“The most pleasing aspect for me was that we kept trying to do the right things even after we had put the result to bed. Good habits are important.”
From the very first Referee’s whistle, the Bridgers pushed their hosts back, making chance after chance that was either thwarted by the Assistant’s flag for offside or some wayward finishing.
It all came good on 23 minutes when Matt Lloyd beat the offside trap to race clear and put the Bridgers 1 up.
It was soon 2-0 when a cross found Matt Lloyd netting for the Bridgers on 34 minutes.
Kyle Flew netted the 3rd on 40 minutes, and just before half time, Matt Lloyd completed his well deserved 1st hat trick for the club on 43 minutes.
HT: Callington Town 0-4 Bridgers
Jackson Penhallurick replaced Matt Lloyd at the start of the 2nd half, the big striker’s work done for the evening, allowing him to take a well earned rest.
Any hope that Callington had of getting anything out of the game were well and truly dashed by the Bridgers, as two quick goals by Kyle Flew in the 49th and 50th minutes effectively killed the game.
The hosts enjoyed a period of possession during the middle part of the half without really troubling the Bridgers defence.
With the game out of sight for the home side, the Bridgers added another three goals in quick succession, Kyle Flew scored his fourth of the night on 75 minutes, then a quick free kick taken on 77 minutes saw Ryan Yeoman score his first goal for the club, and finally, Kyle Flew was brought down in the area and he duly converted the penalty for his fifth goal and the Bridgers ninth of the evening.
There was still time for the home side to net a consolation, when the Referee spotted a foul in the Bridgers area and Billy Coton stepped up to convert the resulting penalty on 87 minutes.
