MERLINS Bridge earned another win on Monday night (Apr 1) as they continued their push for the league title with a 6-3 win over Neyland at the Racecourse.
With the games coming thick and fast the Bridge rotated their squad and the game took a while to get going.
Joe Leahy scored with fifteen minutes gone to give the Wizards the lead but Neyland were in no mood to lie down and they equalised soon after when Joe Charlton headed in from a corner.
Five minutes later though the Wizards were back in the lead when Will Haworth scored as he turned neatly in the box before shooting low into the bottom corner.
The Bridge held a 2-1 lead at half time but fifteen minutes into the second half Neyland were back level as they put pressure on the Bridge keeper and Ollie Hughes took advantage to score.
Adam Hawkins then put the Wizards 3-2 up before Joe Leahy scored twice in quick succession to all but seal the win.
Sean Hannon pulled a goal back for the Nomads but it proved to be a consolation effort.
Late on Josh Thomas completed the scoring as he fired in from the edge of the box to make it 6-3.
The win takes the Wizards into third place in the table, now thirteen points behind with four games in hand.
Merlins Bridge boss Matthew D’Ivry said it was pleasing to get the win and that following Carew’s 3-3 draw with Clarbeston Road, their win against the Road looked a very good result.
The Wizards are in action again tomorrow, Wednesday (Apr 3), when they travel to Herbrandston.
