Bridgham share points in six-goal thriller

Yaxham 3, Bridgham Utd 3

After being second best in the opening period Bridgham went behind but came back to equalise when Alan Boon scored a penalty after Jody Twomey had been tripped.

New signing Jeff Baxter then pressured a Yaxham defender to score an own goal for a 2-1 lead.

Lee Freeman pulled off a great save but from another Yaxham attack they made it 2-2 with a firm header.

In the second half a great run by Eddie March set up captain Jack Hamilton, who found the corner of the net for 3-2.

Yaxham equalised ten minutes later with a strong run and finish and both sides had chances to win the game, Bridgham going closest in the final couple of minutes when Simon Richards had a great chance blocked and a brilliant cross from Richards was not converted when a goal looked odds on.

It was, however, a much improved team performance after a recent bad spell. The Simon Long Appliance care MoM was Lee Freeman.
