Bridge title hopes dashed
9:48pm Sunday 28th March 2010 in Sport
Bridge Timbers hopes of retaining their champions title faded as they drew 1-1 with an awkward Waiting Rooms F.C. . Still under strength with the team ravaged by injury, Timber were marginally the better side in blustery conditions. Both teams had good chances in the 1st half, Alan Bond going close with a header, Connor Anderson also seeing his fine strike whistle past the post, with Waiting Rooms replying with 2 chances of there own, both going past the post to keep it level at the break. Josh Smith had a good shot for Timber in the 52nd minute, bringing a good save form the keeper and with Bridge gaining the upper hand, they took the lead when Lewis Watson was brought down in the area, and Karl Jenkins stepped up and smashed it in the top corner to give Bridge the lead. Bridge failed to increase their lead, with Josh Smith and Watson both seeing there shots go wide, and in the 94th minute, Waiting Rooms got the equalizer to make the final score 1-1. Josh Smith was Timbers man of the match.
