4ths Match Report from Si Randall
Sid Magos’ dad must be wondering what the hell has happened to his son after watching Accies 4s latest game, such was the lunacy of the attacking, defending, goalkeeping and general behaviour on display.
The scoreline of 5-4 doesn’t do justice to a game that packed in a season’s worth of incident into 90 minutes.
To score four against promotion-hunting Beales was a good effort, considering that some late drop-outs left Accies with a bare 11 and a striking partnership with a combined age of 117. A draw would have been fair, but Beales’ loose cannon forward Geoffrey found the net with a lob from the last kick of the game.
20 minutes in you wouldn’t have believed that it would end this close. Accies struggled to gain possession and were constantly on the back foot against a side playing with pace and closing the ball tirelessly. Phil Wash, capable of saving goal-bound bullets without looking like he’s trying, contrived to let a bobbler through his legs for the first and hesitated at this near post for the second. Dan Bennett replied for Accies with a glorious free kick into the top corner, but the traffic was pretty one-way.
Kick-off was delayed for the second half as all 22 players and Sid’s dad watched the ref relieve himself just off the side of the pitch. He arrived back in time to hear Beales’ third goal as the home side were first to the rebound from Wash’s diving save. But this was the catalyst to drive Accies forward. Stand-in skipper Graham Whitworth netted from close range after a period of Accies pressure, and at 3-2 the game was on.
Wash then decided to start a quick move by hurling the ball over-arm to Magos on the left wing but watched in dismay as the ball struck the retreating Beales forward square on the back of the head and flew into the net. Pork Pie would have been proud of this move, and the dubious goals panel has a tricky decision to make.
The outfield Accies weren’t done though. The intelligent running of Whitworth and Mark Esiri created space for the overlapping midfield and creating chances became easy. Two were converted, one by Magos and one by Whitworth, and they even found time to hold hands and miss a chance together from 1 yard out, with the goalkeeper nowhere to be seen.
This was as good as it got though, and no one can have been surprised at the final twist. Accies played well for periods in this game, but produced too many Keystone Cops moments to deserve much out of it.
