BURSCOUGH Richmond's young side will gain a lot of experience from this game - a game that could have easily have been won on first half chances.
B.A.C. started the proceedings,Richmond taking the game to the hosts in the early encounters.
The BAC keeper Baldwin was brought into action in the first five minutes.
On 15 minutes young midfielder Andy Kenyon had two good strikes one just beating the crossbar, the other just going the wrong side of the post.
Ian McKinty should have at least made the home keeper work with his effort on 20 minutes,but the Richmond centre midfielder fired over the bar when it looked easier to score.
In that period of the game Richmond could easily have been at least two goals up but if you don't take your chances football can be unforgiving and so it proved when on 26 minutes the home side were awarded a penalty.
Greenwood for Bac converting the spot kick leaving Tom Shacklady in goal for Richmond little chance of saving.
Richmond were playing well but could have been 2-0 down were it not for some last ditch defending by Morton and Edwards a few minutes after the penalty award.
On half time Murt had a glorious chance to equalise, the Richmond striker driving a diagonal ball past the keeper, just bending the wrong side of the post and going for a goal kick.
A goal at that stage for Richmond would have been no more than Richmond deserved, with the amount of possession they'd had in the first half.
But it's goals that win football matches and Richmond went into the break a goal down.
It took until the 50th minute for Richmond to get the equaliser. A McNabb corner wasn't cleared by the home defence, the ball ran loose to Scott Taylor who was forward for the set piece, the centre half driving the ball through a melee of players and into the net.
On the 55 minute mark Richmond took the lead. A long free kick by Lee McNabb found the head of striker Lee Berrie, the glancing header by the tall forward totally outwitted the home defence and goalkeeper to find the bottom corner of the net.
B.A.C. fought back and in the space of five minutes were 3-2 up.
Richmond gave away two silly free kicks just outside their own penalty area on the 70th and 75th minute.
Dickinson a very influential striker for the home side struck two identical free kicks that hammered past Shacklady in goal for Richmond, the accuracy of the shots were quite bizarre.
Richmond were shell shocked but not out of the game, the away side forcing the play in the last 10 minutes.
They were rewarded with a goal from midfield dynamo Ian McKinty who forced his way through a crowded defence to slot past the home keeper from six yards with seconds to spare.
Richmond had a point as the referee blew the final whistl ,but it really could have and should have been three.
