Bainbridge Island FC B05 Blue. 2. Crossfire B05 Pratt. 1
game played at Battlepoint Park on Saturday September 15th 2018

On a windy fall day at Battlepoint Park Bainbridge Island FC B05 Blue came back from 1-0 down to win against their key North Puget Sound League division 1 rival of Crossfire B05 Pratt. For several years Crossfire have been a great match for BIFC, but for the most part Crossfire B05 Pratt have previously had the better of the results. The tide turned a little in the summer as BIFC beat Crossfire in the Crossfire Cup tournament cup final in late July. This early season match up brought Crossfire a chance for a revenge, or Bainbridge to reaffirm their new dominance.

The first half was dominated by Crossfire as they held sway with possession and created the better of the opportunities. That dominance by Crossfire led to them going ahead mid-way in the first half with a quality strike from 22 yards that BIFC keeper Miles Zaner could not keep out. BIFC 0 Crossfire 1.

The wind at Battlepoint Park was inhibiting Bainbridge's possession play and attacking bursts were sporadic in the 1st half. Bainbridge did press an attack to get a corner kick on 27 minutes that Finn McCallum delivered from the right wing. From that kick the second ball bounced in the box and Saatje Stevens was able to latch on to the ball and fire into the far side of the goal to tie the game up at 1-1. Bainbridge were happy to get in at half time level in the score.

A re-asserted Bainbridge came out after half time determined to take the initiative. With a renewed focus and concentration towards quality possession based play really showed to set Bainbridge up for a dominant second period. That comeback was confirmed 18 minutes into the second half after good play by Avery Decker set up August Peterson to score and put Bainbridge ahead for the first time in the game. BIFC 2 Crossfire 1

The final 15 minutes brought some Crossfire pressure to try to equalize, but this BIFC B05 team have a great resilience to be able to work hard and manage a game to ensure it falls their way, it is one of their greatest strengths, and once again they saw this game out for the win. A delighted BIFC B05 Blue coach Phil Avison said at the end of the game "I thought in the first half we did not perform to our potential and were second best, but in the second half we showed a belief in our ability, calmness in possession, plus the quality and work ethic to ensure the game went our way. It is a huge win for us".

Bainbridge B05 Blue will continue in their efforts to win the North Puget Sound League Division 1 as they head into further games in the fall season. Right now they are well placed with a 2-0-0 record.
