Match Report

Bridport were without 2 or3 regular players but as least were able to field their regular goalkeeper who was unavailable last week . Bridport started well yet again and created a couple of good opportunities  after good work down the right hand side involving callan Strelley and Finn cooper . But it was shaftsbury who scored first with their first attack , another defensive mistake from centre back jake Mansley gifted a chance for lee gale who gave billy fleet no chance in goal . Bridport showed great character and scored twice in quick succession , both from right wing crosses , firstly jake Mansley scored with a header from a Sam Handyside corner and soon after centre back Ryan Gall scored also with a header after good work from finn cooper . Shaftsbury then hit back with 2 goals after becoming more physical against Bridport's young team .
Bridport came out in the second half knowing they had to match shaftsbury physically no did just that . Bridport knew they couldn't afford to concede again but grew in confidence creating a few opportunities but it was a mistake from shaftsbury which gave striker josh hunter a chance to level which he did.Bridport sensed the opportunity to go on and get all3 points . Finn cooper hitting the post, sm Handyside , josh hunter , Riley weedon , Dan peach all going close to score . But late on with Bridport pushing for the win it was billy fleet in goal that saved a point for Bridport with a fine save . A point for Bridport after a poor recent run of results Should give the young bees some confidence for the games to come .
