Biggleswade 3 v Truro City 2 (by David Simpson)

Its a very long road from Truro to Biggleswade and Truro showed the effects of the long journey. The match that finished with such a crescendo took a little time to burst into life. Neither keeper were much troubled in the first 30 minutes. On 34 a crossfield ball from Ian Rees to Zane Banton whose trademark is fast becoming goals. His dazzling run past 4 defenders only stopped when the ball hit the back of the net. Another 6 minutes and Banton was at it again as he became supplier to Kevin Bossman who has scored in his 3rd in 3 starts for the Waders thus far. At 2-0 Biggleswade were cruising and at ease with the 3 points coming their way.

The second half saw Truro not wanting a miserable journey home and pushing forward. The crowd lost count of the point blank saves made by Ian Brown, in goal for the Waders. It was actually 5. World class, as he kept his side in the game. All change as Conner Roberts was sent off for a last man challenge. Biggleswade changed the formation and for20 minutes kept Truro at bay. In time added Craig Duff pulled one back from close range and but 60 seconds later Matt Wright got the equaliser but.............There was another throw of the dice as an Lee Allinson free kick midway into Truro Territory found the head of Loick Pires, the ball like a bullet hit the back of the net and that was on 90+4 minutes.Truro hearts broken, there was no real time left but to saver what we had all just witnessed.
