With Wes away this week and frantically trying to find a decent stream of the game F&O kicked off in brisk but pleasant conditions promptly at 19:45.
Skins started off well passing around with Greenwood and Brench orchestrating play and Bibs content for them to have the ball in their own half. Bibs trying out an new flat two formation described by Wilson looking solid at the back.
The sultan of summer had the first real chance with a toe punt from distance which stung Trickers hands. Soon after Bibs took the lead when White drove a rasping shoot into the back of the net giving Tricker no chance (but F&O reporters after the game heard Ridley saying the keeper should have saved that)
Bibs were on top now and creating some good chances as Brench was heard shouting we have to have more than one at the back and how true he was as soon after Bahrami steered a header into the back of the net from 5 yards.
Skins managed to create a great opportunity from a corner when the ball fell to Greenwood on the edge of the box and his powerful shot was heading for for the bottom corner but was stopped on the line by his own player Voss as Bibs hacked clear.
With the end of the first half moments away a slick Bibs attacked lead by Curry and White lead to a shot from Beebee that hit the cross bar and Ridley quickly blew the whistle for half time.
Bibs new flat two formation was looking good and with Wilson having a great game at the back and organising the remaining keeper changes Bibs went looking for a third goal which surely would have killed the game off.
Bibs started the second half on top again and created some good chances with Beebee hitting the post this time but Skins had a great opportunities when the ball fell to Brench on the edge of the box but only a fantastic sliding challenge by Phil denied the F&O leading goal scorer.
With 30 mins left Mitchell went in goal which required a rejig with that flat two formation at the back for Bibs they went on the attack again and had another opportunity this time when the balk fell for Hunt who pulled his shot just wide.
Soon after skins were on the score sheet when Bibs got caught try to play out from the back lost possession and Greenwood smashed home, Brench had a chance when he was one on one with Mitchell who made a block and then he had a half chance with a snap shot when he just shot wide on a quick(ish) turn.
Then something odd happened Ridley told Virgo to go up top after the next keeper change which turned out to be a master stroke as he swept the ball home after a swift attack, a great shout of relief went up (mostly from Kev)
The final keeper change and both Marks now in goal for their respective teams, both teams going for it now and Beebee with what surly would have been a contender for goal of the season danced his way through some tackles and hit a bullet of a shot that ricocheted off the post and crossbar. With only minutes left Brench launched a long ball up top and when Mitchell wasn't able to win the duel with Greenwood Bibs found them selves two on one and Green struck home to give Skins the lead.
Into injury time now and Bibs throwing everything at the Skins goal now and when Curry go to the byline the wily Ridley looked to bring down Curry but no foul was given and with that went Bibs chance of finding a deserved equaliser.
Final score Skins 3 - Bibs 2
A really good game last night, good performances from Wilson, Curry and White for the Bibs and Greenwood for Skins
MOTM - Matt Green
A great second half performance creating the assist for Virgo and hitting the winner.
