CHIEFS bounced back with a win against Sproatley at the weekend despite an under-par performance.

The home side had most of the possesion in the first half but were unable to make their dominance tell and the scoreline remained 0-0 at half time.

Chiefs made some positional changes after the break but this still didn’t seem to ignite the players.

Eventually the Bridlington side began to improve their game and were making more chances up front.

Jacob Prince put Chiefs ahead after making another strong run and placing the ball into the bottom corner.

Sproatley soon equalised after a good interchange of passes involving Harrison Withers, Jordan Richardson, Will Roe and Nathan Pickering and a rasping shot from Isaac Etherington that left Liam Gulc in the Chiefs goal with no chance.

Chiefs continued to pile up the chances but a combination of bad luck and poor finishing meant the score remained at 1-1.

With time running out a great tackle by Ben Ibson, who was strong and committed throughout, won the ball and he found Austen Wiles who threaded a great ball into the feet of Sharkey Boreman who, after evading a desperate challenge, finished with a great strike.

Sproatley still had time to create one last chance and would have scored but for a wonderful goal line clearance from captain Chris Causier.
