Team BC opened the game extremely well, scoring within the first 5 minutes on tight and narrow pitch. Cait Berry back from injury, hit a half volley from 20 yards which looped over the goalkeeper into the top corner of the far post.
Possession was dominated by Team BC but no real chances were created. Both teams struggled to keep the ball on pitch with it bouncing out of play so easily.
Petroc equalised midway through the first half after their keeper executed a well struck kick straight down the middle of the pitch. Team BC made failed to deal with the ball bouncing around them and Petroc’s number 9 finished past the Team BC goalkeeper.
Team BC dominated possession and had some excellent opportunities to score but their chances were hit high and wide of the goal or straight at the Petroc no. 1. The third goal did come Team BC’s way when a corner from the right bounced around the 6 yard box for Chloe Vernon to poke home to make it 2 – 1.
The second half dwindled away for Team BC who struggled to maintain possession or create further chances. Petroc equalised once again with 15 minutes left on the clock when Team BC again failed to deal with a long ball through the middle.
Petroc’s number 9 went 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper once again only for Bridgwater keeper Klaudia, to make an excellent save. Acting as covering defender, captain Lucy Stacey was unable to direct the save away from goal.
With 2 minutes remaining, Team BC had a final chance from a corner from the left which was flicked towards goal and bound for the near post, only for a Petroc defender to block the goal with what seemed like a high arm. Despite appeals from Team BC, the referee waved away all protests.
Final Score: Team BC 2 – 2 Petroc
