BBCU 2-1 FC Phuket

BBCU came back from a goal down to beat FC Phuket 2-1.

It's Raining Again
It was a lively start to the game and the home side blew a golden opportunity to take the lead within 2 minutes when Malick pulled his shot wide after being put clean through on the keeper.

As the rain swept into the stadium, both sides created chances in the first half. BBCU had had most of the possession and forced several corners while Phuket's free flowing passing made them a dangerous prospect on the break.

There were no goals in the first half, but that changed one minute into the second half. The home side went behind when Phuket's left-midfielder, Poramat, volleyed from inside the box for the opener.

BBCU Mascot
BBCU increased the pressure for an equalizer and were rewarded when Chainarong drilled a free-kick into the top corner from 25 yards out.

By this time BBCU were on top and with about 20 minutes left on the clock Wattanasap swiveled to divert the ball past Matijas in the Phuket goal. From the angle I saw the goal, I think the keeper should have done better.

Once Phuket went behind they never really threatened to draw level as BBCU held out comfortably to claim 3 points.


  1. Was Jay Harris playing. If so, was he any good?

  2. Yes he was playing in central defence and he had a solid game. He's a big powerful lad who is 100% commitmented.

    I've only seen him play once so it's impossible to tell whether he could have displaced either Mario and Moise at the heart of the TP defence.

    However on this performance, I'd say Thai Port's loss is BBCU's gain.

  3. Good to see him finally getting a game!
