Hitchin Town 0 Cambridge City 3

Monday, December 10 2012

Resurgent Cambridge City, one of the form sides in the Premier Division, brushed aside Hitchin in the Canaries’ last home game before Christmas.

After beating Bedford two days earlier, Hitchin hoped for a positive result to build some momentum, but Cambridge had too much strength and energy for a team with fragile confidence.

Cambridge’s frontmen caused Hitchin problems from the start, notably the waspish Adam Marriott, who was denied early on by Martin Bennett after he had twisted and turned his way through the Hitchin defence.

Hitchin had some half chances in the first period with Zak Burke seeing his shot blocked after good work by Jonathan Constant, and John Frendo’s cross-shot bravely cleared off the line by Lee Chaffey.

The game changed just before the break, however, with two Cambridge goals in the space of three minutes. In the 39th, Bennett came out to meet the onrushing Marriott and he brought the diminutive striker down in full flight. Substitute Craig Hammond scored from the spot, and thankfully for the Canaries, Bennett avoided a red card.

In the 41st minute, Hammond scored again, volleying home from close range after the ball had sailed across the area and touched on by Marriott.

Hitchin tried to retaliate in the early stages of the second half, with Frendo shooting wide after a good interchange with Luke Gregson , but Zac Barrett - who had a brief pre-season flirtation with Hitchin some years ago – was rarely troubled.

Cambridge almost made it three in the 52nd minute when Lawrie Stewart produced a brave headed goalline clearance from Ashley Fuller’s shot.  Bennett also performed some heroics to keep the score down, saving twice from Hammond and then from Mitchell Bryant.

As the game drifted to a conclusion, Marriott cleverely controlled a throughball on the byline and created a nicely-taken goal for Bryant. Hitchin couldn’t complain, they had been totally outclassed.
