GOALS GALORE IN BARNETBY'S NEW YEAR WIN
Brigg Blog thanks Barnetby Football Club's Lee Fielden for the following match report and pictures from yesterday's victory in the EC Surfacing Scunthorpe & District Football League division one.
Doubles by Steve Glentworth, Jack Blendell and Ben Hunt saw Barnetby record a 6-3 victory away to Crosby Colts.
The 2 sides had met in the previous league game 3 weeks ago but both sides had numerous changes from that game in which Barnetby won 4-1.
The Railwaymen started the better and Hunt and Clark had both had chances before Blendell lashed home from the edge of the box to open the scoring.
Ben Hunt made it 2-0 running onto Shaun Clark’s flick to chip the advancing keeper for his 8th of the season.
This stung Crosby into life, especially Ben Smith who was terrorising Barnetby’s right hand side. His run into Barnetby’s box saw him win a penalty which was duly dispatched and it was game on.
Barnetby weathered the storm though, and 2 minutes before the interval Steve Glentworth bundled the ball home to restore the 2 goal lead.
Within 10 minutes of the restart Crosby pulled another goal back and Barnetby we’re looking decidedly uneasy.
A reshuffle saw Ryan Lidgett drop into right back and Ryan Frankish move out to the right. It was his burst that set up Hunt for his second.
The momentum was now with Barnetby; Glentworth added his 2nd from the edge of the box and Blendell skipped through for his 2nd to put the Railwaymen 6-2 up.
Crosby got their 3rd with 5 minutes remaining but Barnetby hung on for the 3 points.
