A display of commitment, energy and determination saw BISH score 2 more quick goals after 20 minutes through Phillip L’s second of the game and a strike by Josh L which saw BISH going in at half time with a commanding 4-0 lead. BISH continued to control the game in the second half despite of number of changes to personnel, second half goals from our second Captain Ben W and a first BISH goal for Eduardo T rounded off an excellent performance and victory for BISH boys.
