BIC 3-0 Stourbridge
BIC welcomed Stourbridge to Bristol for the second meeting between the sides this season, the visitors running out comfortable winners in the cup game during November and the home side looking to make it much closer this time.
The home side had to impose themselves on the game and started brightly in the first 10 minutes with good link play in the final third but couldn't create a clear scorimg opportunity. Stourbridge remained compact and took the lead after 15 minutes with a through ball from deep and the striker scored when clean through. A second followed soon after as an overload from midfield and persistence paid off to finish into the bottom corner.
BIC came out again in the second period trying to gain the upper hand still against the wind and despite good share of the ball, were caught out by another Stourbridge goal from inside the box follow good running from midfiel.
The second half saw BIC step up again trying to increase the urgency and win the ball back quickly. It was a much improved Q3 and Q4 with some good efforts on goal and plenty of waves of attack from the home team. Clear cut chances were still few and far between at either end and the score line stayed the same for both periods. On balance this was a fairly even encounter between two good sides but Stourbridge scored when it mattered and gave BIC a lot to do afterwards.
We look forward to the return fixture in a few weeks time.
