Up stepped Mfula & his shot was parried away by Gillan who became the hero. A minute later & Mfula tried his luck from 18 yards but again Gillan pushed it around the post.

In the 40th minute in a rare attack Lucian Scarlett passed out to Andy Irvine & his shot was saved at the second attempt by Adam Molloy. Half time came & Sheppey were in total control.

The second half saw Bearsted have a right go at Sheppey & in the very first minute of the half Jon Rogers 15 yards out saw his shot go just past the post. In the 50th minute in a rare attack for Sheppey Harrison Carnegie received the ball out on the left wing, he then cut inside & from 18 yards his shot was saved by Gillan.

In the 53rd minute Bearsted got the goal their ply deserved when Irvine on the left received the ball & his low cross found Scarlet who controlled it & went round Molloy & shot home. A minute later Bennett was put through & from an acute angle his shot was saved.

Four minutes later & Sheppey restored their 2 goal lead when a free kick into the area saw a few players go for it but unfortunately it hit a Bearsted head & went into the net.
