The Gaffer’s Summary
“Tremendous effort from the lads, we had to dig in at times against a very good Mousehole team. A good point on the road and keeps momentum up for Tuesdays derby against Bodmin.”
Massive thank you to Jim Bertrand for his awesome live video coverage.
The Bridgers put in a superb performance to share the spoils at a rain soaked Trungle Parc.
It was Mousehole who scored first after 14 minutes when from a Bridgers free kick, the ball fell loose for the hosts to race upfield, with Hayden Turner netting his 13th goal of the season.
Mousehole were not in the lead for long, as following a corner from Sam Wickins, Matt Lloyd produced a thumping Didier Drogba Champions League Final 2012 style header to draw the Bridgers level. It stayed that way until the break.
HT: Mousehole 1-1 Bridgers
It did not take long for the home side to regain their lead, five minutes in fact, as the returning Kieran Toland netted the hosts second of the afternoon.
But once again, the setback did not deter the Bridgers. In the 64th minute, the Bridgers levelled the contest for a second time, when a mistake by the home keeper allowed Jacob Smale to score.
As the match came to a close, Mousehole had the chance to score the winner, but the defence and Bridgers Keeper, Rob Rosevear, were more than equal to keep the hosts at bay.
