BASH RESERVES SURGE TOWARDS TITLE
Bash unlike their first team counterparts are within a short breath of the Wyvern
Combination League title playing their second placed opponents didn't look too
troubled all afternoon.
The game was a scrappy affair with the first chance coming after Ricky Dugdale
crossed the ball to Matt Head who split the defence wide open in the 25th
minute. Two minutes later Ben Dashwood floated a great ball over the box which
went inches wide of the top right.
Bash kept up the pressure with a Dashwood header just wide of the left post
from a Bash corner in the 38th minute. One minute later Dugdale made a good
break but his solo effort couldn't break through the defence.
Just before half time Charley Dukes floated a corner in Dugdale again headed
just a fraction over the bar, a minute later Damian Gorman crossed the ball left to
right Dukes picked it up with Blayne Kinley denied.
Bash started off the second half where they left off piling on the pressure in short
bursts, the breakthrough came in the 52nd minute with Dugdale finally getting a
well-deserved goal, victory was assured in the 77th minute with Head finishing off
A third could easily have been added by Dugdale in 4th minute of injury time
from a delightful chip over the keeper which went just over the bar.
Reserves manager Andy Howard said, "We have a winning mentality throughout
the squad, just two more wins and the league is ours. Guy and Duggers
deserved their joint man of the match. A big thanks to the lads for a fantastic
