Bedfont Town 1 Hitchin Town 1

Wednesday, October 20 2010

Hitchin were given a reminder that not every week brings a five-goal haul as they grabbed a point in the shadow of Heathrow Airport. Bedfont Town took an early lead and despite being on the receiving end of a barrage from the Canaries, the game ended 1-1.

No lounging at the Airport

Hitchin’s managerial duo said they would be happy to come back from their trip to the airport with a point and now those who thought there was a degree of “bigging up” Bedfont will understand why.

Hitchin had to come from behind to earn a point, but on chances created, they should have been comfortable winners.

Bedfont got off to the best possible start when Leon Jarnie netted from close range after three minutes with the Hitchin defence appealing for offside.

This was where the Bedfont threat ended, but Hitchin laboured to break down the Bedfont defence, despite creating chance after chance. Just after the goal, Tony Fontenelle hit the crossbar with an audacious long range effort and then Tom Pepper, Jamie Arlick and John Frendo all had chances to score. Surely, it was a case of when, not if?

Towards the end of the first period, the momentum faded, but right on the stroke of half-time, Mark Smith grazed the bar with a header from Zak Burke’s free kick.

Hitchin eventually equalised on 52 minutes, a good build up involving Frendo and Arlick, the latter putting the ball through a defender’s legs, and Callum Donnelly scored from 10 yards.

Again, it was Hitchin in the ascendancy, with Arlick having two near identical efforts that went wide and then a penalty appeal being turned down after Donnelly went over in the area.

Hitchin continued to press, but with an element of time-wasting breaking up the flow, the game ebbed to a close with the Canaries perhaps disappointed that they had only a point to show for their efforts. Bedfont, however, were a shade above Hitchin’s last three opponents, which was a worthwhile lesson for those getting used to  a handful of goals per game.
