JOBY BOURGAIZE was the man to keep his cool last night and score possibly the most crucial goal yet in the Priaulx League title race, as Bels extended their lead to 11 points.
On a night when both sides spurned chances aplenty at the Track, after a late switch from the waterlogged Northfield, the ‘visitors’ were grateful to Bourgaize’s 70th minute intervention.
After surging from deep and playing a lovely one-two with substitute Dave Rihoy, he coolly slotted inside the near post to pick up three vital points.
Up to that point, it looked as though the spoils would be shared, although it was a cracking game for the neutral and if cooler heads had been shown in front of goal, it would have been a high-scoring affair.
