Match details: Maidenhead v Billericay Saturday 09th February 2013
Billericay made the short trip around the M25 looking for the 3 points to try and get them away from the bottom of Blue Square South league table after the fine performance at Chelmsford earlier in the week.
It was Maidenhead that started the better of the 2 sides and were rewarded in the 9th Minute when striker Alex Wall scored via taking the ball around the blues keeper Beasant and slotted home well, 1-0 after 9 minutes.
This seemed to be a wakeup call for Billericay who started to press the ball more and were certainly more dominate after going 1-0 down and they got the deserved equaliser in the 32nd Minute when Swaine headed home from a superb corner, 1-1 and game very much on, The blues had a great chance to make it 2-1 but Mays superb shot was well saved by the Maidenhead keeper Lumley to keep the score 1-1 at half time.
The 2nd half kicked off on the boggy pitch with both teams trying to get the advantage, unfortunately for the blues it was Maidenhead who made it 2-1 when Wall scored his 2nd of the game heading home from a corner in the 76th Minute, could the blues come back again, yes they could. On the 86th Minute May scored what looked to be an important point for the blues, scrambling the ball home from close range from the melee of players in the Maidenhead area, 2-2.
With 4 minutes remaining neither team looked like they were going to settle for the draw with the blues attacking for the win, enter injury time and the blues conceded a cruel 3rd Magpie goal when Reece Tiscon Lascaris was set free, he smashed the ball into the corner of the net, leaving the blues empty handed and looking to get a vital 3 points in the next game on Tuesday against Eastbourne Borough.
