AFC Totton 2 Hitchin Town 2

Tuesday, November 13 2012

Hitchin picked up their first away point in the league for two months, earning a credible draw against AFC Totton.

If the Canaries had carried on the way they started, the one point would surely have been three. Hitchin came out in a confident mood, striking the woodwork through Stewart King and then taking a 13th minute lead through the same player.

Jack Beckett did tremendously well in creating King’s goal and the youngster finished in style.

Three minutes later, Hitchin almost scored again, Frendo hitting the post and King following up but denied by goalkeeper Gareth Barfoot.

Hitchin’s bright start gave way to some Totton pressure and Martin Bennett and Daniel Webb prevented them from finding the back of the net.

But Totton eventully drew level after 34 minutes, Richard Gillespie shooting home from close range after the Hitchin defence failed to clear a free kick.

But Hitchin regained the lead three minutes later, John Frendo scoring from the penalty spot after he had been brought down in the area.

The scoring wasn’t over, however, and three minutes from the interval, the unmarked Jamie Whisken equalized for Totton with a header.

The second half was less open but Hitchin  held their own against in-form Totton.  Callum Donnelly went close when he shot over the bar and Martin Bennett saved from Gillespie. Frendo created an opening for Canaries’ substitute Daniel Delderfield but he shot too high.

So honours even and that was just about right. It would have been a pity if the Canaries had returned home with nothing to show for a decent performance, especially in the first half.
