Hullbridge win seven goal thriller

Bees slip to rare defeat in "away" match

Basildon United slipped to a fifth league defeat of the season as they lost by the odd goal in seven against Hullbridge Sports.

The match had been switched to The Ho-Ho Stadium from Hullbridge's Lower Road ground earlier in the day as the pitch was waterlogged and survived some further torrential rain during the afternoon to be passed fit for play by the match referee.

And it looked like it would be the Bees who took advantage of the game going ahead as they asserted themselves on the match from the outset. Basildon were achieving joy down both flanks and several chances went begging from pinpoint crosses as the promotion chasers could not find the back of the Hullbridge net.

As is so often the case in these situations, the Bees were made to pay for their profligacy as Hullbridge took the lead two minutes before half time as Adebola Sotoyinbo tucked the ball home from close range to give Sports a half time lead.

It appeared that Basildon had discovered their shooting boots at half time, as within 60 seconds of the restart, Reece Conway was well placed to convert Marcus Bowers' cross and draw the "visitors" level.

However, a horrendous ten minute spell proved to be telling in the match as Hullbridge scored three times to open up a 4-1 lead.

Firstly, on 52 minutes, Matt Dicks restored Sports lead directly from a corner and barely a minute later substitute Charlie Buffin added a third on the break. And there was an air of inevitability as former Bee Luke Hornsley added a fourth just after the hour mark.

Bees rallied though and pulled a goal back on 66 minutes when Joe Skeels deflected free kick made it 4-2.

A frantic period of stoppage time was guaranteed when Jamie Selby-Knight reduced the gap to one after 90 minutes, but Bees could not find an equaliser and Hullbridge left with the points.
