Back 3 v 4 Point (league 4)

Reds win Broadbay derby

For the third game in a row the Rudhachs won a 7 goal thriller by the odd goal. The Reds are playing like Kevin Keegan’s Newcastle at the moment and “we would love it” to carry on, as long as we keep winning! Yet again it was Robert Jones who scored the winner, latching onto Andrew Murray’s classy through ball to stroke beyond the keeper. Jones has been in great form this season and has scored the winner in the last two games.

Wally started the scoring with a cracking lob over the onrushing keeper. The ball seemed to take an age to go in but bounced perfectly into the empty net. The Reds were on fire early on and Jones escaped his marker soon after to bullet home a header from a Wally corner.  Slowly but surely though  Back came into the game and Gordy Maciver’s free kick was well placed into the corner, although Johnny in the Point goal will feel he might have saved it. This gave the Bacachs momentum and soon enough Joel Martin tucked home a rebound after Johnny had saved Chris Macleod’s shot. Great come back by the yellows(away strip) and it got better when Chris Mackay reacted quickest after a free kick had been flicked on by Chris Macleod to fire the ball home. The Rudhachs were reeling although both Andrew Mackay and Wally missed great chances to score at the other end.

Into the second half and the game settled down a bit. Point were on top but couldn’t score, while Back looked dangerous on the break, particularly through Joel Martin and Stevie Mutch.  Eventually the Reds equalised when Jones followed up a saved penaty from Wally and was able to bundle the ball home, although it looked like Craig Macleod might have got the final touch. The penalty was of the stone wall variety after Andrew Mo had been wiped out by the keeper after knocking the ball past him. Soon after Jones ran onto Murray’s long ball and finished assuredly with his left foot. A perfect hat trick? Left, right , head. Well it was certainly perfect for the Reds and their supporters.
