Bugiel sounds for Rebels

The Non-League Football Paper - - RYMAN PREMIER - By Ian Townsend

WOR­THING ex­tended their un­beaten run to ten matches in a match which was ef­fec­tively de­cided dur­ing ten min­utes of first-half mad­ness at Wood­side Road.

In the 26th minute, Rebels striker Omar Bugiel re­ceived the ball just in­side the op­po­si­tion half be­fore pow­er­ing to­wards goal, An­gels de­fender Ugo Udogi at his heels.

It seemed that Bugiel – re­port­edly the sub­ject of in­ter­est from Rother­ham United and Da­gen­ham & Red­bridge – had lost con­trol when he and the de­fender made con­tact. But the ref­eree awarded a penalty be­fore send­ing off Udogi.

Bugiel fired home the spot­kick for his 11th league goal of the sea­son.

Ten min­utes later an al­ter­ca­tion be­tween Nick Wheeler and Aaron Hopkinson re­sulted in Wheeler be­ing red carded and An­gels re­duced to nine.

A touch­line melee also saw An­gels boss Steve McKimm and Rebels un­used sub­sti­tute Bran­non O’Neill sent to the stand.

Seven min­utes of added time saw An­gels come close to an equaliser as Will Hen­don cleared a mis­kick off the line.

The ref­eree con­tin­ued to take cen­tre stage in the sec­ond half, award­ing Wor­thing two more penal­ties.

Bugiel took both. He scored the first and, when An­thony Di Ber­nado saved his sec­ond, Zac New­ton was on hand to fire home the re­bound.

STAR MAN: Omar Bugiel (Wor­thing) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
