"Only 3 days rest for Barely when they met the league leaders. On a windy evening at the Oasis Reunion took the lead with some great inter play around the Barely defence. Opting for a 451 formation Barely managed to keep the creative Reunion midfield at bay with some crucial challenges and tight marking. Approaching half time the game began to even up and Paul Tavener rounded the right back and hit a cross shot which went in off the bar. Half time and the wind settling both teams made changes and went for it. Both keepers had plenty to do but a Reunion mistake allowed Sam in who buried his shot in the bottom corner. But good teams don't give up and with only minutes left Reunion forced a corner and their forward managed to force the ball through our defence and into the net. A great game and well done to all who made it through the roadworks to the Black Castle afterwards."
" Barely completely outfought us tonight but we managed to escape with a last minute equaliser from Tiff Pike. We played in a howling wind and were fortunate to take the lead with an excellent finish from Stu. Defensive errors found us 2-1 down with twenty to play. We kept going and nicked an equaliser in the last minute. Maximum respect to Barely who played exceptionally well and seem to have our number!"
