After a tricky start to the season the Baltic have now recovered some form, recording back to back victories and moving up to second in the table. A commanding first half performance was rewarded by a fine effort from Max Allen (Clarksons) after some excellent play between his Clarksons colleague Guy Bartleet. The BEFC continued to create chances and controlled the game but failed to capitalise on their superior possession, giving themselves a tricky last five minutes as HSBC piled men forward for a backs to the wall finish to the game. With only a minute to go an HSBC striker ghosted in at the far post to boom a header in the bottom left hand corner of the goal but the Baltic’s blushes were saved by what can only be described as a world class save by keeper Ben Regan (AM Nomikos) diving at full stretch to tip the ball around the post. The Baltic Exchange defence managed to see the out the two corners that followed to pick up a vital 3 points.
Man of the match for the clean sheet, commanding performance and outstanding match-winning save goes to Ben Regan.
