Bainbridge Island FC B06 White 4. Kent United B06 White 2
Game played at Battle Point Park on Saturday November 10th 2018

It was a very brisk and breezy afternoon at Battle Point Park where Bainbridge Island FC B06 White and Kent United B06 White played each other for the first time.

BIFC had an injury in the middle of the week to one of their players, and a couple of other boys weren't available for the game, and so the team were coming into the game with 11 players available.

The game started off sedately as both teams started out a little slow with neither team
getting any real opportunities. In the 10th minute Bainbridge began to find some rhythm, and a foul led to a BIFC free kick 40 yards out. Mateo Utne struck a well hit wind assisted shot to test the goalkeeper who was set up a little off his goal line, and Mateo Wass able hit it up and over the keeper and off of his hands and into the goal. 1-0 Bainbridge.

In the 19th minute a Kent United midfielder found and opening and beat a
couple of players going into the box and slotted the ball into the corner of the goal to tie the game at. 1-1.

With a small adjustment to the back line moving Judah Marshall back, helped to
solidify the back line and fix the poor defensive shape within the BIFC backline. Bainbridge turned it around real fast getting opportunity after opportunity but just missing the goal. Finally, in the 32nd minute Ian Sanders played a ball over the top of the Kent United defense forward to on running Laird Farrel who beat the keeper to the ball and shot past him and into the lead.

Three minutes later in the winding minutes of the half Aki Haley found himself getting a pass to him 25 yards away from the goal in the middle of the field, and blasted a shot up and over the diving Kent goal keeper and into the top right corner of the goal.
Bainbridge lead 3-1 at half time.

At the start of the second half Kent United came out more aggressive and with a lot more energy than the first half and put a couple of strong attacks forward testing goal keeper Remington Brown who took those opportunities away with his quick decision making and a couple key saves.

Bainbridge got back into the game pushing forward and makes some good passes and to the ball forward, and on the 46th minute Judah Marshall played a through ball to Laird Farrel who made a clever skill move around the goal keeper and passing the ball into the back of the net giving the home team a 4-1 lead.

Kent United never gave up and continued to push forward challenging Bainbridge down the left side of the field, and in the 56th minute a Kent player pushed the ball forward and with tremendous
speed got past all the defenders and found himself 1v1 on goal and slotted the ball just inside the post past the BIFC keeper to pull a goal back to 4-2.

The play continued back and forth for the remainder of the game though neither team got any real opportunities in the final 14 minutes and finished with Bainbridge on top of the score sheet 4-2.

Coach Mackenzie Bond commented after the game "I'm very pleased with how the boys handled themselves throughout the game, especially in the second half when it became more aggressive they all stepped up and didn't let the other team's physicality intimidate them. It was a very good team win!"

The Bainbridge Island FC B06 White team go back to action next weekend against Northwest United who they played earlier in the year coming away with a 3-0 victory.
