Home league match played on 25 October 2014.
Kicked off at 2:30 PM

After last weeks disappointing defeat Newbridge needed a much better performance in this game. Newbridge started the better team but failed to take the lead after several early attempts on goal. After 25 minutes Joe Ashton finally put the home side in front from Jordan Whalley's corner. Joe got in front of his defender to put a header past the Storm goalkeeper, 1-0. Just 3 minutes later Storm were back level from a counter attack. Storm player ran through leaving his marker behind him, took it round one defender into the box a slammed it into the top corner. 5 minutes later and Newbridge were back in front again. Jordan played an excellent through ball to Gareth Charles out on the right, he ran down the line past the Storm left back and put it into the keeper's bottom corner. Then came a moment of sloppiness from Newbridge's own throw in by our own box just 3 minutes after scoring. The Storm player took it off the player that it was thrown to, crossed the ball to the player in the box and he got a lucky flick to put it into the net passed the defender and goalkeeper. With the game now all square it looked like this could be another one of these games where Newbridge throw it all away again but they pick up their game and carried on attacking and James Tregay put Newbridge back infront once again just 5 minutes before half-time.

Second half Newbridge made some changes, personnel and formation and from then on it was all Newbridge. Just 2 minutes into the second half James Tregay made it 4-2 and his second of the game. Gareth chipped the ball over the defenders to Elliot Baker and he played James through to put it in the net. Another 3 minutes later and Newbridge were looking comfortable when Daniel Birch (Dill) scored from 35 yards out with his left foot after the keepers poor clearance went straight to him. Newbridge now playing some excellent football and were passing the ball around well. Newbridge had several corners in this game with headers going just wide or over the bar and it could have been 9 or 10 by this point, but they finally made it goal number 6 from the corner. Joe put the ball into the near post and James Tregay put the ball into the net for his hat-trick. The Storm linesman flagged for offside and quickly dropped his flag again realising the player who scored was not the one offside. The Storm players complained so the referee had a word with the linesman and after the chat gave the goal. Newbridge almost made it 7 shortly after when Gareth's thunderous strike hit the underside of the bar and came back down but the ref was unsure whether it had crossed the line and didn't give the goal. Newbridge continued the pressure for the final 25 minutes on a struggling Storm side but the scored stayed at 6-2.
