M3 v New Beccehamians – 2nd February 2019

Old Bordenian 3rd X1 – 3

New Beccehamians – 1

Following a strong game the week before, Old Boys welcomed second in the league New Beccehamians. It was an unfortunate start when Gary Pointer tweaked his injury from the previous week and was off for the rest of the game. Despite both teams battling hard, it was New Beccs who took the lead. This spurred OBs on and Matt Cook received the ball on the left of the D and was able to get a reverse hit on the ball which slid past everyone and evened the score. Old Bordenians continued to press and the pressure eventual paid off with a short corner scramble being converted by captain Craig Stone for his first of the game. The dynamics of the game had changed completely and OBs were clearly on top. A third shortly followed with a deflected effort from Stone to get his second of the game. This gave the Bordenians a deserved win and prepared them for a physical game against Gravesham next week
