Hythe Town 3 Herne Bay 1
Ryman League Division One (South)
Tuesday 27th September 2016
Hythe Town came from 1-0 down at half time to eventually comfortably win 3-1 at home to Herne Bay on Tuesday evening.
Hythe were the first to show as after four minutes Frankie Sawyer fired in a free kick that was palmed over by Herne Bay keeper Jack Delo. However, Hythe were caught on the break on seven minutes as the ball came loose in the penalty area to Michael Turner who volleyed into the net beating Hythe keeper Joe Mant. Hythe continued to press in search of an equaliser as Alfie May volleyed into Delo’s arms and then Sam Adams shot wide from the edge of the area. Bay did continue to create some chances as firstly Mark Lovell tested Mant and then Adam Woollcott sent a shot looping wide. The game was going from end to end as Ryan Johnson hit a shot on the turn over the bar. At the other end a searching free-kick from Danny Walder went across the face of the Hythe goal without anybody able to divert the ball goal wards. Josh Burchell was next to threaten for the Cannons sending a shot from a narrow angle that was cleared away by Delo and then two minutes from the interval Sawyer on the overlap hit a right footed attempt over the bar.
Bay started on the attack after the interval as Woollcott forced a save from Mant diving to his left. However the hosts began to take control as debutant Liam King had an effort easily saved by Delo. Then came the three minutes that turned the game on its head as after 59 minutes Sawyer broke through and calmly lobbed the ball over Delo into the empty net. Within three minutes Hythe were ahead as Sawyer turned provider feeding the ball to Alfie May who fired home from close range. On 72 minutes Herne Bay did threaten as Walder sent in a header wide of the target. However on 79 minutes the Cannons sealed the win as May lifted in a cross deep into the area finding substitute Alex Mulrooney-Skinner who rose above the Bay defence to head home. It was now one way traffic as the hosts poured forward. Mulrooney-Skinner fed a ball into Kenny Pogue who side footed over the bar and then May cut in and forced a save from Delo. One more opportunity saw King work a neat one-two with Matt Newman before firing over. That was the final chance as Hythe held on comfortably to take all three points.
The Cannons now move into the play-off places in their fifth consecutive victory.
