Tonbridge Angels 2 Hitchin Town 1

Saturday, November 10 2012

 Hitchin’s interest in the FA competitions came to an end at Tonbridge, but for much of the game the Canaries matched the Blue Square South side.

The two goals Hitchin conceded had a very similar look about them – Carl Williams’ side has developed  a penchant for being over generous to their opponents. But in terms of possession, the Canaries had more than their fair share at the Longmead Stadium.

In the third minute, Hitchin made their first slip-up in defence when they allowed the ball to run through to George Purcell, whose shot was parried by Martin Bennett but the ball sailed over him and into the net.

Hitchin came back well and eventually created some openings, Jack Beckett and John Frendo both volleying wide. At the other end, Purcell was denied by a good save from Bennett.

Hitchin drew level on 29 minutes from the penalty spot. Frendo was brought down in the area by Ben Judge and the Canaries’ leading scorer took the kick himself to level the scores.

Hitchin were soon behind again, though. In the 36th minute, Chris Piper was free in the area and his shot went in off the post from close range.  It was perhaps a little harsh that the Canaries went in at the interval a goal behind, but in the second half, they were never as convincing.

Purcell almost added a third for Tonbridge right after the restart, but the home side found themselves down to 10 men in the 53rd minute when Judge received a second yellow.

Hitchin didn’t really take advantage  of the extra man but Frendo had two worthwhile chances to restore partity. Tonbridge came again, however, with Purcell and Henry Muggeridge both striking the woodwork. Another good move saw Muggeridge shoot across the face of goal.

With eight minutes to go, a playground skirmish resulted in Louis Lee being sent off. Lee left the field to a torrent of abuse from the otherwise hospitable Tonbridge fans.

Hitchin  didn’t threaten to take the tie back to North Herts, so it’s back to the league, county and league cups, starting with Totton on Tuesday.
