Despite missing a couple of their regular players, Beer Albion Reserves had an excellent 3-2 win against Feniton Reserves at the Furzebrake on Saturday writes Peter White.
Beer started the game well, and were soon 1-0 ahead courtesy of an 18 yard strike by Nathan Newberry.
However, the lead was short lived, as Feniton soon equalised after a mistake by the Beer defence from a free kick, and then went 2-1 in front with ten minutes of the first half remaining.
Further Feniton chances came in the second half, but Beer held firm, and then scored with fifteen minutes to go, Simon Smith passing the ball under the Fenny keeper to make it 2-2.
It was then nip and tuck, but the Fishermen netted the winner in the last five minutes, a Todd Lewington half volley strike going in off the post to seal a well deserved 3-2 victory.
