Blackpool had beaten the league leaders in the first match of the season but knew they were in for a tough match in return.
They were surprised to find themselves in the lead after a Keiron Morrow sideline hit flew into the D for Jack Boniface to deflect in for a stunning goal.
The lead wasn’t held for long as a slip from central defender Peter Latimer enabled his attacker to get a strike off from the top of the D which proved to be pin-pount accurate. Deeside took the lead minutes later as slopping marking led to an overlap and an easy goal.
Blackpool restructured and held firm for the rest of the half and striker David Wright was unlucky not to score after several one-on-ones against the Deeside keeper. One of these could easily have led to the keeper being sent off for deliberately sliding out of the D but a short corner was awarded instead which was then wasted.
At only 2-1 down at half-time Blackpool felt they could get something out of the game. However Deeside attacked in waves, with their strikers continually changing position, and Blackpool again looked disorganised in defence and quickly fell 4-1 behind.
A spirited counter-attack led to a Liam Morrow goal from a David Morgan slip, and for a short period it looked like Blackpool could get back on equal terms.
However Deeside managed to score another two goals and finished worthy winners. This match does show that Division 4 is so competitive and every game that Blackpool play is going to be fought over. Next week sees Runcorn travel to Stanley Park for another relegation six-pointer.
