After two wins on the trot Bridgwater were looking to make it three against a team they had already beaten in the cup this year. The game started off a little scrappy with both teams trying to find the goal to settle them down and take control. Fortunately half way through the first half it was Bridgwater who would take the lead through a powerful strike from skipper Tom Lott. Bridgwater then pushed for their second and shortly after it came from a not so well worked short corner routine that pusher out Gower found himself with the ball in the D to slot home. At 2-0 up at half time Bridgy intended to get the game over with as soon as possible.
The second half started very bitty and was not helped with a few green cards meaning both teams were down to ten players men at times with no team able to take advantage. Bridgwater had multiple short corners but were unable to score, and at the other end they defended stoutly keeping the Bath team out with Jenkins able to clear a couple off the line. The scored didn't change, giving Bridgwater a well earned win. Not the prettiest of games but a gritty performance with the defence and keeper Hendrie able to keep their second clean sheet in three games.
Man of the match - Tom Lott
Bridgwater 2s travelled to Clifton Robinsons, knowing it was going to be a tough game, needing a good start but this was not to be the case, starting with possession, it was soon lost and Robinsons countered, scoring with their first attack. This was not the start Bridgwater was hoping for, but was a sign of things to come and Bridgwater did not recover, going into the break 6-0 down.
