Locking Park Reserves drop 2 points

Locking Park will be wondering how they let the 3 points slip away in this game.

Park went 1-0 up when Craig Baird ran on to a long kick from the keeper and bravely took the ball around the onrushing Kewstoke keeper. Park doubled their lead shortly after when Baird picked up the ball 40 yards from goal and lashed a dipping shot over the keeper. Kewstoke got one back but when Ben Hollow was taken down in the area a minute before half time, Baird stepped up to complete a first-half hattrick.

Two enforced changes saw park lose Kyle Hobden at half-time and the massively influential Baird just 5 minutes into the second half. These unfortunate incidents saw Park having to change their team around and it immediately had an impact. Kewstoke came back into the game and Park lost their shape and composure. Kewstoke got two goals back to make it 3-3 and were pushing for the win. Park got a bit more of a grip on the game and it became very end to end, with Park missing a glorious chance late on to win it.

Man of the match went to Craig Baird for his first-half hattrick.
