Bridge came out in the 2nd half with more determination and duly took the lead when Liam Sweeney's 25 yard scorcher hit the top corner after good work from Watson. Wes Farrington doubled Timbers lead with another great goal after running with the ball, beating 2 defenders before unleashing an unstoppable shot in to bottom corner from 20 yards to extend Bridges lead. With Bridge dominating the game, Ray Mcdonald smashed home goal number 3 after Karl Jenkins neat pass gave Mcdonald time to skilfully turn the defender before finding the corner for 3-0. Karl Jenkins then got off the mark for the season with a decent goal, after seeing his initial shot blocked by the keeper, Jenkins reacted quickest to tap home number 4 and round off a good all round display for Timber. Bridge Timbers man of the match was Lewis Watson.
