Our Brentford fans team threw away a 6-2 halftime lead to draw 7 apiece in Twickenham on Saturday.
The game was played in muddy and wet conditions, the Bees fans adapted quickly to the sticky situation.
Laurie Hicks scoring twice in the first 10 minutes, before an under strength Preston team pulled one back.
Preston started with 6 players and 4 Brentford loanees after their southern section failed to appear. The game was a ten a side affair in the first period. Hey Jude very much on top.
Harry Ratcliffe added a third from Mark Jones’s cross shot before Hicks’s looping header sealed a first half hat trick and a 4-1 lead.
Jones then notched twice, his first a Messi like chip. Which would’ve been goal of the day, until the Preston centre back hit a 30 yard screamer for a 6-2 half time score.
A host of chances went begging in the second half for the home side. Preston, on comparison pegged the Bees back, as Hey Jude over stretched themselves at the back.
Stuart Nixon’s effort was the only positive in the latter period.
7-7 was the final score. That’s 25 goals scored in the 5 Hey Jude BIAS games this season. Team. Hammy, Supes, Charlie H, Nixon, Nick G, Hicks, Ben H, Harry, Jones, Charlie V.
Guesting for Preston. Paul D, Jamie, Norm and Smiffy.
