 Another hat trick for hot shot Revell


 


 

 

Bourne Town Junior Reds U15 3 Wisbech Acorns U15 2

 

Bourne extend their unbeaten start to the season to three games with a well-fought win over Wisbech Acorns. 

 

Bourne started positively with a chance created by striker Joe Revell who beat two defenders but his shot was saved at the near post by the away keeper.

 

Just moments later Revell needed just two touches to take the ball in his stride and lash a finish into the back of the net to give the Reds the start they would have wanted.

 

Striker Casey Machin then found himself through on goal after a long ball over the top by goalkeeper Alfie Bennett. He just took a touch too many and the keeper read his intentions and smothered his effort on goal.

Bourne continued to dominate and a second goal almost followed as a header from Tim Schoutsen fell to Machin who could not get his shot off from close range.

 

The home side were well on top and their confidence was shown when centre-back Joe Couzens's free kick from nearly the half way line tested the Wisbech keeper.

 

Harsh free kick leads to equaliser

Repeating previous experiences this season, just when the Reds seemed to be in the ascendency, they let their lead slip. A harsh free kick for handball was given on the edge of the area. The shot was drilled along the ground, Bennett misjudged its flight, assuming it was going wide, only for it to clip the post and go in. 

 

Bourne could not find a response to this before half time and the sides went in level.

 

With the scores tied at the break the Reds again started quickly. The home side almost regained the lead as Revell tested the visitor’s keeper from close range and wide midfielder Bobby Clark hit the follow up opportunity over the crossbar.

 

Wisbech then pushed forward and forced a good save from Bennett who also smothered the second ball ensuring there was no follow up chance.

 

Revell then played a quality through ball to Clark who, one on one with the keeper, forced a good save, the keeper then also saving the follow up.

 

Excellent build-up play from Machin and Clark meant that Revell found himself in behind the defence and calmly tucked it away to give the Reds the lead for the second time in the match.

 

Within two minutes a fine pass from Nathan Bills, aimed for the advancing Revell, saw the Acorns’ keeper collide with his own centre back and the Reds’ striker pounced on the loose ball to claim his second successive hat-trick and eighth goal in just three games.

 

Bourne continue to dominate

 

With twenty minutes to play Bourne continued to dominate the game. Bills, Machin and wide midfielder Luke Edwards combined well to set up Machin whose shot was well parried with the follow up hit over by midfielder Ethan Crolley-Waine.

 

Never keen to give their watching supporters an easy ride the Reds began to take their collective feet off the accelerator. After a series of failed clearances and missed tackles a shot on goal finally opened-up for the visitors and was duly despatched into the top corner. 

 

With only a goal in it the Reds had to navigate an uncomfortable last five minutes before finally claiming the three points, which on balance was the right result. With other teams playing cup games the win also took them to the top of Division Two.

 

At the end of the game captain and centre-back Tom Cameron said: “Well that’s another game we have made hard work of!”

 


 

BOURNE: Alfie Bennett, Tim Schoutsen, Joe Couzens, Tom Cameron, Ethan Hunt, David Turner, Ethan Crolley-Waine, Nathan Bills, Isaac Bates, Joe Revell, Casey Machin, Ollie Marshall, Luke Edwards, Bobby Clark
