Almost in character with the first game was to be a tight affair with Bearsted once more being the victims of their own defensive mistakes. Similarly it was them who were to look the brighter from the start, showing the potential of a win. However at the other end after 12 minutes, as a result of a horrendous misplaced back pass presented the simplest opportunity for Kerr a Boylan to put the ball into the net. Although somewhat stung by this, the response was very positive, during which time saw Lucian Scarlet finding himself in on goal only to see his effort being saved be the advancing George Hyde, followed by a great chance for Constantine Scarlat only for him to send the ball wide of goal. Unfortunately for the home side though, they were to go further behind after 20 minutes, when once more possession was lost on the edge of the area, the result of which allowed Russell Harvey to set up James Mcelliott to send the ball past a rooted Ethan Collen.
Following the half time break Bearsted’s reaction remained positive and for most of this time having to break down their opponent’s rearguard. Chances indeed were plentiful notably when a run down the left by James Bessey took him to the by-line to cross onto the head of Cat Scarlat to send the ball wide and in similar fashion soon after, it was Luciane Scarlet who provided the cross for Sam Flisher to also send the ball wide. As the half ran down so the chances continued to come, first when John Rogers fed the ball through for the Luchie Scarlat to shoot narrowly over and when that same player was unlucky to be robbed by a double save from Hyde who played a major part in seeing his team into the next round.
