Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South and West – Saturday, 20th August 2011
Halesowen Town 3 Bideford AFC 1
Strikers Justin Nisbett and Nathan Jackson bagged their first goals of the season as Halesowen ended Bideford’s 100% record in the second home win of the week.
The Yeltz started brightly in a compelling contest with Aaron Lescott playing the ball in for Jackson to hit tamely at goalkeeper Oliver Chenoweth in the 2nd minute and Lee Chilton’s 5th minute ball across the face of goal just escaped Nisbett. Hard-working Nisbett then missed a good chance for an early lead when put free to run on towards goal after 7 minutes but he placed his shot wide of Chenoweth’s post.
As the visitors settled, Matt Andrew’s 13th minute free-kick was struck wide by Alex Jeannin. Bideford piled forward quickly when in possession and home goalkeeper Paul Evans had to be alert to make a fine save with his legs after Sean Downing burst through the centre and found Ben Wood free to shoot on goal in the 19th minute. Seconds later, Downing turned well in the penalty area to hit just past the post before Brendan Kelly replaced injured Peter Folkes at the heart of Halesowen’s defence midway through a first period that threatened plenty of goals.
The Robins looked to have taken a 28th minute lead but Matt Bye was unlucky to see his shot thump back off the post with Evans beaten. Bye then shot just wide after 39 minutes and was denied again as Evans raced out of goal a minute later. Despite creating plenty of chances, the hosts probably failed to test the visiting goalkeeper enough during the first period and just before the interval Anthony Bruce placed a shot high and Chilton headed Nisbett’s cross over the bar.
But the Yeltz were quickly out of the traps to make a storming start to the second half with Nisbett striking twice within five minutes. NISBETT won a long ball from Gavin Saunders just a minute after the restart and calmly slotted home past Chenoweth. Chenoweth then made a fingertip save off Chilton from Jackson’s cross. NISBETT clinically tucked home a second goal in the 51st minute after out-muscling the visiting central defence from Kelly’s long ball out of defence.
DOWNING pulled a goal back for Bideford in the 54th minute with a simple free header at the far post from Andrew’s free-kick. But JACKSON made it an incredible four goals within fifteen minutes to restore Halesowen’s two goal advantage with a superb 15 yard finish on the half-volley after connecting with Andrew Westwood’s long ball from the right in the 61st minute.
With further goals looking likely, Bideford’s Wood blasted high when free on goal in the 69th minute and Saunders looked up to drive over the Bideford bar in the 76th minute.
Late on, visiting substitute Craig Herrod fired wide after the home defence defended well to keep out an 86th minute free-kick but it was not to be Bideford’s afternoon as Evans then made a splendid save from Downing. In stoppage time Chilton crossed well from the left only for substitute Naveed Arshad to be denied on the Bideford goal-line.
