Kendal Town suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to Bamber Bridge at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium on Tuesday night.

The home side dominated the match from start to finish and won comfortably with a Brad Carsley hat trick and an Ali Waddecar strike.  

The match started with Bamber Bridge straight on the front foot and an early surging run down the left wing from Regan Linney led to a Brig corner which was claimed confidently by Will Kitchen in the Kendal goal.

On 10 minutes, Bamber Bridge were awarded a free kick just outside the area following a foul on Waddecar. He took it himself and although he beat Kitchen, the ball rebounded off the upright and the Mintcakes cleared.

Ten minutes later, Bridge did have the lead they deserved. Waddecar was set free down the right wing, he turned inside the full back before delivering a superb cross that was met at the back post by Carsley, the striker's header was parried by the Kendal keeper but Carsley reacted quickly to stab the ball home.

In the 30th minute, Brig doubled their advantage. Carsley cut in from the right wing and delivered a low cross towards the near post. Kitchen misjudged the flight of the ball and could only help the it over the line as he tried to clear.

Kendal responded and on 40 minutes Lloyd Rigby was forced into a decent save pushing a low shot round the post for a corner.

The second half continued with Bamber Bridge pressing forward at every opportunity.

The first change of the evening for Bamber Bridge came on 73 minutes with Denzel Williams replacing Macauley Wilson and within seconds Brig made it 3-0. Waddecar received the ball in the six yard box, cut back inside leaving the full back behind and curled a shot into the far corner.

Brig continued to dominate and on 85 minutes Carsley completed his hat trick to compound Kendal's misery. A defence-splitting reverse pass from former Town man Danny Forbes set Carsley free. As he reached the corner of the 18 yard box, he unleashed a screamer which flashed past Kitchen into the far corner of the net.
