Hearts and minds just weren’t in this one. Whether they were expecting to walk it without trying too hard I’m not sure but, Panthers came unstuck.
Beacon attacked and Panthers struggled to handle it. Despite this, somehow, Panthers took the lead with a Lewis2 goal and just three minutes later Ben made it 2-0 to Panthers and that I suspect is what cost us. If we could play that poorly and be well in the lead surely this was going to be easy?
Beacon continued to attack and played some very nice football and reaped the reward by scoring twice before half time (2-2).
Second half saw Panthers carry on in the same way, as did Beacon and got their just reward on 16 mintes (3-2). Panthers pushed forward more and had a few shots on goal but they all went wide or were very weak.
Full time 3-2.
Beacon: GOALS (11′,15′,16′)
Panthers: Lewis2 (6′), Ben (9′)
