Wealdstone 4 Hitchin Town 0

Tuesday, January 30 2007

Calamity struck again for Hitchin when they suffered another heavy defeat on Tuesday night, this time at the hands of struggling Wealdstone.

It couldn’t really have got much worse for the Canaries, who have now conceded 15 goals in five games in 2007. Although just one point behind the play-off contenders, Hitchin’s form and leaky defence is damaging their chances of success by the week.

Wealdstone had won just twice at home before this game but Hitchin failed to trouble the nomadic Middlesex side. Hitchin may argue that they should have had a 25th minute penalty when striker Chris Dillon went tumbling in the area, but from that point, the Canaries were not a threat.

Wealdstone took the lead when a Graeme Montgomery shot was parried by Rob Beckwith and Dean Papali followed up to score after 33 minutes. The same two players combined to extend the home side’s lead three minutes later when Montgomery’s free kick struck the post and Papali shot home the rebound.

There was more to come in the first half as Scott Donnelly’s hit a superb shot over Beckwith after 41 minutes to give Wealdstone an impressive lead.

Hitchin tried their best in the opening stages of the second half to reduce the arrears and Carl Williams shot over the crossbar after a knock down by Glen Lamacraft. But Wealdstone added another goal after 66 minutes in an incident that led to the dismissal of Beckwith.

The Hitchin goalkeeper failed to control a cross and the ball fell invitingly for Papali, who was then pulled back by Beckwith. The referee had no choice but to show the red card and Adam Parker took over in goal. Papali grabbed his hat-trick from the penalty spot.

Parker was not severely tested, but pulled off a couple of good saves. As for Hitchin, they gave Wealdstone goalkeeper Lee Carroll nothing to worry about.

Wealdstone: Carroll, Chappell, Moore, C.Martin, B.Martin, Donnelly, Hall (Clark 75), O’Leary, Cort (Gooderick 63), Papali (Swift 75), Montgomery

Hitchin: Beckwith, Childs, Frater, Folds, Miller (Cretton 72), Deeney, Williams, Lamacraft, Dillon, Parker, Mills (Orphanou 57)

Attendance: 234

Referee: M.Scholes
