Bilbaum and SPEC in six-goal thriller
|3 - 3|
Page Street, Mill Hill
Promotion rivals Bilbaum and SPEC FC shared the points following a six-goal thriller, with Dan Amram, Elliott Wallis and a penalty from James Lesner on target for the visitors.
JAKE GILBERT was the hat-trick hero for Bilbaum.
SPEC FC's Ricky Lawrence told JC Sport: "Both teams (and the ref - Martin Lavender) were a credit to the league. Despite the conditions and both both sides putting in some strong tackles, there was not one complaint and I don't think I've ever seen a game where the ref didn't have one bit of back chat to deal with and that's with a penalty given to each side. A draw was a fair result in a game neither side deserved to lose.
"All at SPEC would like to wish Bilbaum midfielder Sam Roth better after he picked up a nasty looking injury in the first half."
Bilbaum joint-manager Mark Pasha told JC Sport: "Both teams played some great football in excellent spirit on a field that would not have been out of place at the battle of Agincourt.
"Whilst it was frustrating to throw away a lead, we can't argue with the result. After a couple of weeks off, not a bad way to get back into things though."
