Two goals in three minutes in the second half were enough to send Bideford to a 3-2 defeat to Dorchester Town in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier on Easter Monday.The hosts had more than enough chances to complete a comeback late in the second half, but were unable to get an equaliser after Nick Milton got the score back to 3-2 in a thrilling game at the Sports Ground. Goals from Dorchesters Charlie Davis and Neil Martin had taken the away side in front, after Davis and Matt Andrew got goals for both sides in the first half. Bideford manager Sean Joyce was left to rue his sides missed opportunities. He said: Due respect to them, they beat us 3-2. Did they earn and deserve it? Probably not, but if we cant defend that end and score at the other then weve got problems. We should have had another two or three today, so Im disappointed. Joyce cited the two quick goals at a time when Bideford had switched off as typical of his sides season. The sooner [the season] finishes the better. Weve done a lot better, but it frustrates me because we let a team like that get away with three points. Im not saying we were brilliant, but we have a five minute spell and we concede. Davis opened the scoring for Dorchester after 10 minutes, when his low show beat Kyle Moore in the bottom corner. Bideford had plenty of chances to equalise, and they were able to just before half-time, when Billy Tucker put in a lovely lofted through ball for Matt Andrew to latch on to and rocket into Shane Murphys bottom right corner. Andrew nearly put Bideford ahead on the hour, but his shot from the edge of the box was pushed round the post by Murphy. But Davis popped up to put Dorchester ahead, firing in when Bideford failed to clear their lines from a free kick, before Martin made it three just minutes later. The away side went down to 10 men for the last 20 minutes as Jake Smeeton was taken off on a stretcher with a leg injury after Dorchester had used all three subs. They seized the advantage with 10 minutes remaining when a speculative shot from Milton found its way into the net after Murphy made a hash of the save. The goal woke the Robins up, although they werent able to find the equalising goal. Kevin Squires missed the sides best opportunity after Dan Western dribbled into the box and fired across the goal, only for the forward to have his shot deflected. Joyce now has to pick his team up for another two games in the next week, as the Robins near the end of a brutal run of fixtures. We looked a bit leggy and tired, because were such a small squad, said Joyce. Weve done 10 games in 31 days and weve done 3,300 miles in that time.
