Maidstone Mens 3s
|Date||Saturday 19th November|
|Scorers||Olly Priestley, Ian Lowe|
Maidstone 3rds entered this fixture with a determination to secure their first points of this league campaign. Poor form up till now and a fluctuating team sheet has left them fixed firmly at the bottom of the table. Maidstone started brightly and had the better of the opening exchanges but were hit with a sucker punch goal early on to leave them trailing. A second BBHC goal shortly afterwards put the home side on the back foot but Maidstone were unfortunate not to take something from the first half when Matt Evans hit the post, Andy Berry was denied by the athleticism of the visiting goal keeper and Player of the Match James Beacon was denied by a last ditch challenge. After the break Maidstone were able to take control of the match, good passing play, dogged determination and team spirit were rewarded with 2 short corner goals in quick succession the first fired home by Olly Priestly and the second taken calmly by Ian Lowe. Maidstone camped in the BBHC half and wave after wave of attacks were repelled by the visitors, a series of short corners did not reap any benefit then a break away attack from BBHC gave them the goal they needed to secure the points and frustrate what was an excellent Maidstone performance and an unjust scoreline.
