Hitchin Town 3 Tiverton Town 2

Saturday, April 29 2006

HITCHIN paraded the biggest prize they have won for 36 years and treated their fans to an entertaining end-of-season game against Tiverton Town.

Invariably, the last game of the season is a non-event, but this was a lively game, packed with talking points and bizarre moments. The Canaries ended the season on a positive note, and found themselves in 14th place at the close of play - an improvement on last season.

Hitchin got off to a perfect start and Josh Sozzo scored after four minutes, a neat finished after a low ball into the area by Daniel French. But five minutes later, Tiverton equalised, a 30-yard free kick by Darren Davies creeping inside Richard Wilmot’s right hand post.

In the 13th minute, the Canaries restored their lead through Mark Ducket, who at the second attempt sent a left foot drive wide of former Luton goalkeeper Mark Ovendale.

Sozzo and Gavin Jaggard linked up shortly afterwards to create a chance for the latter, but his effort was wide of the target. Glen Lamacraft also had an opportunity to extend Hitchin’s lead.

Wilmot kept Hitchin ahead with saves either side of the interval, firstly with a spectacular near post stop from Chris Bale’s header, and then  from a Jamie Mudge volley. Wilmot’s oppostive number, Ovendale, did likewise from a James
Ayres overhead kick.

Tiverton equalised once more in the 61st minute when he raced clear of the defence and sent a shot wide of Wilmot.

Four minutes later, a bizarre goal proved to be Hitchin’s winner. Sozzo rolled the ball goalwards and Ovendale, attempting to clear, sliced it into his own net. Sozzo was quick to claim the goal as his own!

Tiverton struck the woodwork twice in a matter of seconds in the 70th minute, Mudge hitting the bar and Dave Hambly returning the ball against a post.

In the last minutes of the season, Sozzo had the chance to secure his hat-trick, but he hesitated before shooting and Ovendale was not tested.

Hitchin: Wilmot, Deeney, Ducket, Hammonds, Ayres, Hicks (Lochhead 82), Cavill, Lamacraft, Jaggard (Hayes 63), Sozzo (W.Mills 90), French, Folds
