Guernsey 2 Hythe Town 2
Ryman League Division One (South)
Saturday 18th March 2017
Hythe Town must look on this as two points dropped as ten man Guernsey came back to draw 2-2 on the island on Saturday.
Guernsey were the first to attack as Tom Martin shot straight at Hythe keeper Joe Mant on three minutes. On five minutes Kieron Campbell threaded the ball through to Dean Grant who finished the chance by planting the ball in the corner of the net to give the Cannons the lead. Soon after, Dave Rihoy had a golden opportunity to bring the scores level but scuffed his attempt with out threatening the Cannons goal. Further success came for Hythe as they were to increase their lead on 31 minutes as Wilson fed the ball into Kenny Pogue who calmly put the ball into the corner of the net at the near post.
Guernsey then reacted and Rihoy on a run into the box but his final shot lacked pace. At the other end a Wilson corner found Dave Cook but he headed into the arms of Guernsey keeper Leroi Riley. On the stroke of half time Rihoy hooked the ball home from ten yards to narrow the lead.
Hythe had the first chance of the second half after 47 minutes as Sam Adams blasted a dipping free kick over the bar and then immediately at the other end Rihoy forced Mant into a save as he broke through. The next effort saw the ball come to Ryan Zico-Black who sent his shot curling well wide. Guernsey were reduced to ten men as Angus Mackay was sent off for a second yellow card in 58 minutes as he brought down Campbell. Wilson sent the resultant free kick over the bar.
Despite being down to ten men, Guernsey continued to press as Zico-Black sent over a corner which was met by Dom Heaume who headed wide after 61 minutes. Guernsey kept up the pressure as Keanu Marsh headed over from a Zico-Black free kick. Another Zico-Black free kick was headed just wide by Heaume. Grant did have a chance as he tried to place the ball past Riley but miss hit his attempt into the arms the keeper. Grant had another chance from the right hand side but his shot was deflected as it went through to Riley. Dave Rihoy then threatened as he rifled a dipping shot that was punched over by Mant. However Guernsey continued to press and on 82 minutes a speculative shot Seb Skillen found its way into the corner of Mant’s net to bring the scores level. Wilson nearly regained the lead as a dipping cross come shot went just over the bar. However that was the last of the goal mouth action as both sides had to settle for a point.
Hythe will need to get back to winning ways to get themselves back into form to challenge for the play-offs as they travel next Saturday to South Park in what will be a difficult fixture.

Join the Reachfields backroom team.......
The club are in urgent need of another match-day steward to help with some general duties in and around the ground. There are some benefits but this would mostly suit a supporter who already attends games and who would like to get a little more involved with the club.
We are also looking for an active person who can help with pitch preparation during the week and in the close season.
If you are interested in either of these posts please phone 07908 763101 for more details, or call into the Club Office on any match day.
