Bernstein double helps Real Life make their point

By Danny Caro, January 16, 2011

Two more goals from Real Life talisman Charlie Bernstein ensured that honours finished even in Walthamstow following a four-goal thriller.

An exciting game from start to finish and probably a fair result.

It really was a game for the attacks of both team as both looked good going forward with defences struggling.

JLGB took the lead from an Matt West header at the far post from an excellent Joe Cullum cross

Joe Cullum then had the ball in the back of the net, but the goal was ruled out for offisde following an incredibly close call was given by the ref.

The second half got underway and Life got back into the game with a well taken strike into the bottom corner from Bernstein.

JLGB upped the pressure and had a lot of the play going forward going close through Mike Marks, and Rob Silverman and Mike Marks both hitting the bar.

Then Joe Cullum was put through and lobbed over the keeper to make it 2-1.

Lee Stone and Jonny Reid were having great games in the full back positions, both playing out of position but playing some great balls forward and Matt West was on fire, beating his man every time and getting some great balls into the box.

Life got their equaliser when a lofted ball beat Jon Temerlies and Bernstein was there with another good finish

Rob Levene kept JLGB in it with a couple of excellent saves before the whistle blew for full time.

Rob Silverman, the JLGB manager, knew he couldn't afford to lose this game and whilst a win would have done JLGBs survival chances the world of goo. He felt that a draw was a fair result, and told JC Sport: "I was proud of my team today, they fought for everything and we looked really dangerous going forward.

"I feel a little more optimistic about avoiding relegation than before the game, especially with Paul Black, Ian Levy, Oli Shoffren and Justin Freedman to return to the squad soon."
