HARDY STRIKE IS JUST MAGIC

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL PREMIER - By Tony Tom­lin­son

A QUITE bril­liant Liam Hardy goal just short of the hour earned Bux­ton full points.

With wind, rain and slope in their favour, Marine took a fifth minute lead.

James Mur­ray got to the by­line and from his loop­ing pull-back, Ge­orge Lo­max’s down­ward header beat keeper Jan Budtz.

The Bux took the first quar­ter to get go­ing, but then equalised in the 28th minute. Joe McGee’s pow­er­ful run forced a cor­ner from which Luke Hins­ley headed home.

En­cour­aged, the home side made fur­ther open­ings, with Hins­ley feed­ing Sam Smith who shot wide, then Cur­tis Mor­ri­son, lively in at­tack, shot into the side net­ting on half time.

With the el­e­ments in their favour, the Bux dom­i­nated sec­ond half pos­ses­sion, but Marine fash­ioned a neat pass­ing move for Danny Mitch­ley to fire at Budtz.

Then Hardy’s pace en­abled him to seize on a back­pass, in­stantly turn­ing to face goal and slide the ball home from the nar­row­est of an­gles.

Twenty min­utes later, Hardy’s pull-back crossed the face of goal un­touched be­fore Marine made a de­ter­mined ef­fort late on with­out cre­at­ing a clear open­ing.
