Weymouth 3 Hitchin Town 2

Saturday, October 20 2012

If ever a game summed up Hitchin Town’s inconsistency it was this one. Ahead twice, they were beaten by a home side that has failed to impress on their own ground this season.

They couldn’t have got off to a better start. John Frendo gave the Canaries the lead in the second minute when a misplaced Weymouth pass rolled to him and he brushed aside a challenge before rolling his shot low and wide of goalkeeper Simon Evans. It was already Frendo’s second chance, for after just 20 seconds, he met a Callum Donnelly crows with a volley that was saved by Evans.

But Weymouth responded quickly and Mark Ford had two chances to level, once when nhe hit the crossbar. In the 14th minute, however, Ford scored, running onto a long ball and drawing Martin Bennett before stroking home.

Weymouth were not level for long, in just over a minute, Zak Burke restored Hitchin’s lead. He received a pass from Liam McGovern, played the ball to Frendo, who returned the favour as Burke ran into space in the area and shot past Evans from close range.

Hitchin were pegged back within a minute of the restart, Ford heading home at the near post from a corner by Sam Poole. From thereon, Weymouth had the upper hand and Ben Joyce struck the woodwork as the home side piled on the pressure.

Ford secured his hat-trick with Weymouth’s third goal on 58 minutes, hooking the ball high into the net after Scott Walker’s free kick was nodded back by Stephen Reed and knocked on by Poole to the far post.

Hitchin rarely threatened the Weymouth goal again, although a late goalmouth scramble almost did it. The Canaries were left to ponder on what might have been.
