FOOTBALL: The Bridge could have won their home tie against Bexhill Town in the Macron East Sussex Football League Premier Division if they had taken their chances in the first period. Curtis Coombes and Mikey Morgan both squandered chances early on before Town took the lead. Bridge keeper Grant Lewis pushed a twenty yard shot round the post and from the corner the Bridge defence allowed the visitors defender space to plant a header into the net but The Bridge responded and on the half hour mark Morgan’ shot rebounded off the crossbar after good work from Phil Green. The second period started well with Paul Barnes’ 30 yard shot cannoning off the post but with just ten minutes left substitute Guy Ballard rounded the visitors keeper only to see his acute angled shot hit the post. The Town made the game save when they were awarded a penalty after man of the match Ben Hardy was adjudged to have fouled. Lewis had no chance to save and with time running out The Bridge pushed for an equaliser but were caught on the break 2 minutes from time when the Town midfielder lobbed Lewis from 40 yards to earn them top spot. Tomorrow the 1st team are away to Bexhill Town with a K.O. time to be decided while the 2nd team are at home to Catsfield K.O. 3p.m.
