It was around 1:53pm amid the heavy guff of sport's liniment, that Burridge gaffer Maurice Hewlett announced; "This is a game I don't expect you to win." But, those regular Burridge Bloggers out there will know only too well, that Burridge are anything but predictable.
Soon to embark on his debut marathon in the city of London: Greg Baker inadvertently opened a long inquest between Waterlooville centre-halfs by calmly side footed the opening goal from the right of the penalty box. When Baker and Hewitt swapped flanks a second goal followed. Kristian Hewitt took full advantage of the wealth of space in front of him, shooting low past the keeper's right hand glove.
In the second period Waterlooville desperately tried to revive their flagging title ambitions - but Burridge defended resolutely. With minutes left on the clock, newly introduced substitute Jay Schwodler was sent clear and rolled the leather through the posts sealing a comprehensive team performance.
4-4-2: D.Hopkins, L.Sanderson, P.Dyke, K.Willsher, M.Sanderson, G.Baker, S.Burnet, R.Allan, K.Hewitt, B.Schwodler (J.Schwodler), R.Bryant. (Unused Subs: P.Andrews, A.Lovett)
