Bishop survived a penalty shout from Bedlington in the 25th minute, within a minute Bishop hit the Bedlington bar when Griffiths crashed a shot against the face of the bar following a Bishop corner.
3 minutes later Thompson robbed the Bedlington keeper of the ball but couldn’t force the ball home, after ball squirmed free to Goundry he couldn’t get the ball on target through a swam of Bedlington defenders.
Bishop were now in control and on 40 minutes McAloon fired another shot wide of the Bedlington upright. Couple of minutes later Hoganson delivered a great cross which some how McAloon couldn’t guide home.

The first chance of the 2nd half fell to Bedlington after a mix up between the Bishop back line and goal keeper, Young recovered well to deny the Bedlington forward with his feet.
However it was only a minute later when Bedlington took the lead after a high cross in to the Bishop area, the Bedlington forward was on hand to head the ball home, 1-0 to the hosts.
Andrew Johnson was introduced to the game in the 71st minute in place of Stuart Thompson as Bishop searched for the equaliser to keep this seasons Vase hopes alive.
Only 4 minutes after coming on to the pitch Andrew Johnson was looked to have been taken out but the ref wasn’t convinced and decided against giving the Blues a penalty.
In the 79th minute Thomas Marron was replaced by Daryl Hall after picking up what looked to be a ham string injury, Hall’s first touch resulted in him gifting an opportunity to Bedlington which they took full advantage of to make the scoreline read 2-0 to the home side.
That’s how the game finished after a good first half full of chances, Bishop paid the price in the second half in which truth be told they never really got going. Well done to Bedlington who worked hard throughout and progress through to the next round of the competition.
