After recent good league results, Malmesbury returned to earth with a bump losing 9 -2 to a strong Bradford side. The game started in promising fashion with Malmesbury taking a 1 – 0 lead as a result of lovely cross by Ryan struck home sweetly by Pete. Malmesbury had a couple of good chances to go two nil up but didn’t take them.
The impetus of game swung and in a short period Bradford scored four quick goals to take a 4 – 1 lead. Malmesbury responded just before half time as strong Malmesbury attack led to a shot on goal by George, initially saved by the keeper but scored on the rebound by Jasper, to take the score to 4 – 2 at half time.
Early in the second half Malmesbury didn’t take a good chance to close the gap when they didn’t convert a penalty. Bradford took charge of the game and scored a further five goals without reply from Malmesbury. During the second half Ben had to leave the field due to illness but valiantly returned to the game later despite being unwell.
Final Score 9 – 2
Hard luck boys – on to the next game COY Reds.
