Bashley 2 Hitchin Town 3

Tuesday, February 5 2008

Could this game, at long last, be the catalyst for the great Hitchin revival?. That was the question on everyone's mind as the Canaries pulled of a memorable win against a team previously unbeaten at home.

Hitchin even gave Bashley an early two-goal lead but still came back to win, against all the odds. With Bedford losing, the gap between Darran Hay's side and their local rivals is down to six points.

It looked like the same old story, however, as Bashley went two-goals up inside five minutes. The unmarked Pete Castle headed the first after three minute and two minutes later, Jeremy Tarr ran through and scored with ease.

But Hitchin, perhaps surprisingly given recent displays, came back with vigour and in the 21st minute gave themselves a chance of recovery.

Mark Bridge, recalled to the side after a lengthy lay-off, crossed to the far post and Ricky Miller shot home.

Bridge had an opportunity himself shortly after the goal, set clear by Mark Ducket, but the chance was missed.

Hitchin started the second half well with a Ducket free-kick testing goalkeeper Dave Elm. Seconds later, Ducket had another effort saved by Elm.

Hitchin stunned the Bashley crowd with an equaliser after 67 minutes, David Deeney netting direct from a corner.

Two minutes later, the Canaries had a golden chance of going ahead when a Ducket corner was handled by Bashley central defender Phil Archbold. He was shown the red card and Deeney missed from the penalty spot.

In the 74th minute, Hitchin went ahead when a cross by Ducket was turned into the net by Bashley's Paul Gazzard. It proved to be the winner.

For the first time in weeks, manager Hay was sporting a huge grin and the small band of Hitchin fans had something to talk about on the long journey home. Now, at least, there is hope..
