Report: Bamber Bridge 3-1 Colls

An opening goal from Enock Lusiama wasn’t enough as Bamber Bridge earned all three points at the SFC Stadium.

Goals from Harry Scarborough, Christopher Churchman and Jack Baxter cancelled out the Colls opening effort.

Lusiama’s goal came with only five minutes on the clock, he received it from strike partner Lewis Mansell just inside the area, before slaloming past three Brig defenders to place the ball into the far corner of James Pradic’s net.

The Colls lead wouldn’t last for long as a little over 15 minutes later, Scarborough would find himself in behind the Colls backline and would make no mistake triumphantly powering the ball past Tom Donaghy.

A procession of chances from both teams followed with Oli Putnam’s deflected effort forcing a backtracking Pradic to claw it off the line, the best chance for either team as we entered the interval.

After the interval was very much a continuation of the chances for both sides with Captain Mansell going closest for the Colls as he blocked a Pradic pass but that bit of luck Colls needed was nowhere to be seen.

That lack of luck showed once again for the Colls, a well worked set play from the Brig lured Colls out and an expert ball managed to find Churchman who placed the ball into the corner to give Brig the lead with twenty minutes to play.

And as Colls pressed and pushed up to find an equaliser, the lack of men at the back came to show as Baxter managed to get behind the Colls pressing and slotted past Donaghy on the cusp of full time to give the Brig all the three points and leave Colls with it all to do as we look to retain our Northern Premier League place.
