TERRIERS TAKE ALL 3 POINTS AGAINST LOCAL RIVALS
Heading into the top of the table clash posed a big task for the Terriers knowing that the three points would further solidify their lead at the top and continue to extend the gap. The opening stages of the game saw an even contest being played out, but it would be the terriers who would find the back of the night first after Darcy Wright found himself with the ball at his feet, cutting in and finding the top corner from 25 yards in a goal of the year contender.
The Terriers continued to build on the goal and were soon rewarded once again moments later when Will Hamilton found himself in the box before being dragged down by the Berkley Vale right fullback, leaving the referee no choice but to award the Terriers a penalty. Just as he has done in the two prior weeks Harry Fountain once again stepped up to the spot and slotted his penalty into the goal to extend the Terriers advantage.
Berkley Vale had a great opportunity to pull a goal back just before the half time interval, but the Terriers defence stood strong just as they have over the season, seeing the chance go begging for Berkley.
The second half saw much of the game be played out within the middle third of the pitch with both teams having possession without creating any real chances, until captain Sam Kirk found himself on the end of a great delivery into the box to seal the three points for the Terriers and once again keeping another clean sheet.
