With the strong waft of cheap booze the boys warmed up after a late arrival and got into the game. With Charles Stewart-Syme and Harry Rintoul both dominated the face giving Bristol control of the game from the start, and the goals were quickly flooding in.
As MOTM Charles Stewart-Syme quickly got back into the swing of things following his ambiguous hand injury, who really knows what happened, and getting a nice goal.
The boys got cracking on racking the score line up rather quickly. As Bristol settled into the game a bit of a friendly flair competition started between goalscorers, Charles attempted a dirty crease dive BTB, whilst Tom Jackson banged in some cannonballs long range efforts and some rogue subbies form Sam Hockenhall.
The defence were dominant again pushing out and bullying the Southampton attack, Confined to outside jumping shots. Glad to keep a clean sheet, thanks going to Jamie Caldwell for a string of saves from said unexpected shots.
Clearing was strong again with Ben Whitman finding another pole-goal to the dismay of goal hopefully HMS and Matt Nadin, thankfully not much clearing under pressure was needed, or ‘one job’ Atkins may have been missed on his midseason break.
The Crumbled 3G caused grip problems for some, Harry Parker taking an unfortunate fall whilst winding up for what we all know would’ve been an insane full field assist from his own backline.
Thanks again to faithful away fan Charlie Head in the Commentary Box.
