A very entertaining match saw Eagles go down undeservedly to the only goal of the game. Bush Hill started brightly and caught Eagles cold as their number nine was allowed to chest down a high ball, turn and shoot past Dan Goad from the edge of the area. Bush then looked like they might dominate but Eagles midfield fought back, the back four tightened up and by the fifteen minute mark they were on top and making chances. The first fell to Denilson Crook who fired over from close range from a Mitchell Cox cross. Shane Carthy was then on target after Cox and Hunter Diack worked a short corner, but his attempt was headed wide. Then the hard-working Jason Drackford had a fierce low shot saved, and a Cox free kick was well saved just under the bar. Crook then headed a fine Drackford cross wide. Meantime Bush Hill still looked dangerous on the break but Goad only had one real piece of work, saving well low to his left from a scuffed attempt.Just before half-time, Diack had a low shot deflected just wide after good work by Krystian Micalek, but Eagles still went in 1-0 down at half-time.
The second half started as the first ended with Eagles with Carthy and Cox both going close with good efforts, but gradually Eagles seemed to lose their discipline, stopped playing their passing game, and Bush Hill then enjoyed a good twenty minutes. However their only real chance came from a poor clearance, and Goad made a great save. Eagles came back in the last ten minutes forcing several corners from which Sam Williams glanced headers wide twice. In the final minute Eagles pressure almost paid off when substitute Luke ?? chipped wide with the keeper beaten.
The reserve team also continuewd its recent good run of form with a 3-2 win at Chipperfield, Berry, West and Fraser on target for the eagles.
