Birtley were able to complete a hat-trick of wins with a comfortable 3-0 victory over local rivals Washington. Two goals on the hour and a third with the penultimate kick of the game sealed all three points for the hoops in a fiery affair at The Nissan Sports & Leisure Complex.

To be fair it was Washington who looked the stronger in the opening encounters. The home team were playing their first match for a couple of weeks and whatever manager Mark Gibbon had been working on in training, it seemed to be paying off. The Mechanics looked to be playing a more physical game than previously and Josh Allan was controlling the game in midfield.

Both teams had chances to take the lead in the first half, Dylan Quinn coming the closest for Washington with a long-range shot, well saved by Birtley keeper Jordan Bolton. The visitors struck the bar on 30 minutes, Oliver Leedham getting on the end of a deep cross only to head against the metalwork.

Allan then turned from hero to villain for Washington. The home team had lost their way and the tough physical start had turned into a lack of discipline with poor decisions and rash tackles. Thirty-three minutes into the game and Washington captain Allan was given a straight red card after a harsh two footed challenge on Tony Smith. It could have been worse for Smith if he hadn’t of anticipated the tackle and managed managed to hurdle it. The referee took a bit of time making his decision, and despite his best protest and Allan refusing to leave the field, Washington would have to play the remaining 57 minutes with 10 men.

Washington to their credit were able to steady the ship a little each side of half time. Again, both sides had chances to take the lead and the home side didn’t look to be a man down. But as the game progressed, it was clear Birtley’s advantage looked like it would pay off. And it did, with two goals coming about a minute apart.

The first, a brilliant long range effort by former Mechanic Robbie Williamson, beating Nathin Armin in the top corner. Then 45 seconds later Ollie Leedham found himself in the box with time to take the ball down and finish with class. But the talking points were not over there.

Washington had a strong shout for a penalty on the 72nd minute. Substitute Jak Hanson broke into the box, when foul appeals were waved away by the referee. From where I was, it looked to be wrong decision from the official. This seemed to be huge moment in the game and with Birtley asserting more control, Washington allowed frustration to build. Further bookings for Ben Gibbon and Alex Ramshaw before a bad challenge from Chris Patterson, leading in with an elbow led to both sets of players surrounding the incident pushing and shoving with hands in faces and players squaring off at each other. Another referee could have produced a few more red cards. But in what was a difficult game to manage, referee Dan Ranson kept the coolest head on the pitch and only booked Patterson and Nicholas Hay for Birtley.

To be fair Birtley could have ended the game with 10 men. A rash tackle from behind by Kanda Mechak should have been a red and might have given Washington a fighting chance to get back into the game. The referee seeing only a free kik as fit enough punishment.

With the penultimate kick of the game Ben Garrity sealed all three points for Birtley finishing right in front of the keeper. To Armin’s credit, having just pulled off a spectacular save from James Davidson, there was little he to do to stop the third.

In an attempt to save Garrity’s goal, Armin accidentally followed through and wiped out the attacker. This resulted in more scenes of pushing and shoving between both sets of players, giving a bitter taste to the match with Daniel Hill for Birtley and Armin both picking up yellow cards. Several minutes after the goal referee Ranson blew for full-time as soon as Washington re-started.
