Adams Hat-Trick Sees Cannons Cruise Through........
Hythe Town 5 Sittingbourne 0
Emirates FA Cup Preliminary Round Replay
Tuesday 23rd August 2016
Hythe Town eventually cruised through to the next round of The Emirates FA Cup as they thrashed Sittingbourne by 5-0 at Reachfields on Tuesday evening.
However, it was Sittingbourne who were first out of the blocks and on eight minutes a cross from Steven Ita found Remell Davies who could not connect with the goal gaping. Miles Cornwell was the next to threaten as he broke through on the left but pulled the ball wide. Hythe had to wait until the 24th minute before they threatened. Alfie May’s trade-mark cut in from the left led to a shot well saved by young Sittingbourne goalkeeper Adam Wallace. The hosts were quick to attack again and this time a Josh Burchell cross was met by Dave Cook, playing his 300th game, who rose above the Sittingbourne defence to head wide. Hythe had now taken control of the game as Frankie Sawyer sent in a corner that found Craig Cloke who blasted just over. Sawyer again was on hand to feed Dan Parkinson but he also fired over. On the stroke of half time the deadlock was broken as Sam Adams turned inside and instead of passing to May, who drew away three defenders, he fired a shot into the left hand corner of the net from 25 yards.
The second half was one way traffic as there was wave after wave of Hythe attacks. Sawyer fired a shot high over the bar and then May fed the ball into Sawyer but his attempt went just wide. May and Sawyer were again in the action on 54 minutes as they had a smart interchange which ended with the unlucky Sawyer blasting against the Sittingbourne upright. On the hour Sittingbourne had a rare attack as Josh Wisson broke through but shot wide. A minute later Hythe went further ahead as May threaded the ball through to Charlie Webster who broke in from the left slamming the ball home. On 72 minutes the game was more or less over as Ryan Johnson passed the ball into Adams who hooked the ball home. Within another three minutes Adams had completed his hat trick as Parkinson fed the ball in for the ex-Hastings midfielder to slot home. There was one more chance for Sittingbourne to narrow the gap as Conrad Lee slid the ball into Tom Carlse but the ball went wide. Right at the end of normal time Hythe put the icing on the cake when a long clearance from Hythe keeper Joe Mant bounced through to Kenny Pogue who nodded the ball past Wallace to make it five.
The result means Hythe can now face a home tie in the 1st Qualifying Round against Ryman Premier Leatherhead with confidence.
