The Eagles unbeaten record since the beginning of the season finally came to an end after a tepid performance against more committed and physical visitors.
The game could have been quite different had Charlie Thake not missed a clear chance in the opening minutes when clear on goal. He opted for power rather than side foot the ball past the keeper, who made a good save to block the ball with his legs and body. He then saved a follow up shot by Paul Morris.
Broadfields seldom threatened the Eagles goal in the early stages but Eagles keeper Paul McGennity had to be alert to palm over a shot from close range after a cross sailed over the head of Liam Huckle to an unmarked forward. On 15 minutes though Broadfields went ahead with a simple head in from a corner kick, and nearly soon got a second when a direct free kick from 30 yards was deflected by the Eagles defensive wall on to a post and to safety.
Eagles equalised when Jamie Farrar bundled the ball into the net from close range, despite claims of handball by Broadfields, which left the referee unmoved. Eagles improved after the goal and the keeper did well to push a low shot from Morris round his post.
After half time Broadfields soon got their noses in front again when a low cross from the left touchline was firmly passed into the Eagles net .
Joe Tyler was unlucky to see a free kick from 25 yards well saved by the keeper as it was heading for the top corner of the net, but play switched to the other end and in a slick passing move the visitors went 3-1 ahead with a shot from near the penalty spot with Eagles defence threadbare.
Eagles tried to break down a stubborn Broadfields defence but despite plenty of possession rarely threatened the goal, although Farrar shot wide after Broadfields failed to properly clear a cross by Carl Williams.. Keeper McGennity had to save with his feet to prevent a fourth goal for the visitors and in the final minutes a shot by Morris was deflected for a corner , which was not properly cleared and the ball bounced clear off the Broadfields crossbar to deny the Eagles a consolation goal and a storming finish.
