Corfe made the trip West to face a Bridport side who like Corfe narrowly lost the week before.
The home side got off to a flying start with a long diagonal from right to left found the Bees’ wide man with time to dribble into the box and fire home beating the keeper at his near post. After a rocky first 15 minutes Corfe got into the game linking up well through the middle of the park but never really tested the Bridport goal keeper
After the break Corfe started on the front foot and after 10 minutes grabbed the equaliser through a ball over the top to Josh Baker who finished superbly. Corfe had certainly found their way into the game and were edging closer to taking the lead. The advantage then swung in Corfe’s favour when Matt Suttle put Courtney Johnstone in on goal on the edge of the box who’s dink over the keeper was heading wide until Baker popped up again to make it 2:1 to the away side with 20 minutes left on the clock.
Corfe defended very well as the home side were looking to get an equaliser forcing some very fine saves from Corfe’s number one Brad Smith. Corfe were then left very frustrated by some poor officiating which handed the home side a corner that was very clearly a goal kick and from the resulting corner the home side grabbed the equaliser.
With only a few minutes left on the clock the waves of attack were still coming from the home side. What was to come was to leave the traveling team totally perplexed. The ball was cleared for a Bridport throw in on the halfway line when two Bridport players both grabbed balls to throw in, Corfe’s defensive line were focused on the existing ball that went out of play in the hands of the thrower only for another Bridport player who had picked up a spare match ball to throw on to the pitch 10 yards down the line. To Corfe’s amazement play resumed and almost seconds after the throw the ball was in the back of the net, Bridport lead 3:2.
With a minute left on the clock Corfe had a free kick on the half way line where they send everyone up. The free kick was cleared and the home side ran up the park to kill the game off and make it
