Corby Town 2 Hitchin Town 0

Wednesday, March 11 2009

Hitchin’s recent revival was stopped in its tracks by high-flying Corby, thanks to two goals late in the first half at the Rockingham Triangle.

Hitchin had started the game well and until they conceded the goals, they had matched the home side for effort and chances.

Tom Pepper, with a cross-cum-shot, had an early chance for the Canaries, and Jeff Hammond ran onto a through ball and shot wide. Liam George also had a chance, shooting over the bar from close range. At the other end, Luke Woods pulled off a good save from Leon Mettam.

There was a scare for Hitchin in the 38th minute when Jon Munday headed against his own bar, but this was merely a sign of things to come. In the 41st minute, Mettam netted with a unstoppable 20-yard shot and four minute later, Matt O’Halloran curled a shot home the edge of the area.

Hitchin rarely threatened in the second half, although manager Colin Payne made some tactical changes, pushing Paul Olima up front to partner Hammond and bringing on Marcus Rose for Mark Barnes.

Hammond, drew another good save from Corby keeper Mark Osborne, but there was to be no dramatic recovery.
