The Cannons don't fire at Cray............
Cray Wanderers 4 Hythe Town 1
Bostik League South
Saturday 9th December 2017
Hythe were given a harsh lesson on Saturday afternoon as they were comprehensively beaten 4-1 by a strong Cray Wanderers at a cold Hayes Lane.
The first ten minutes saw a battle in the midfield with both sides probing but with no clear opportunities and is wasn’t until 14 minutes when Cray created their first effort as a cross by Brandon Scott was held well under the cross bar and under pressure by Hythe keeper Will Godmon. Cray were slowly stamping their authority on the game as captain Lea Dawson got onto a loose ball but scooped it high over the bar. The hosts were ahead on twenty minutes as Aaron Rhule had a shot parried away by Godmon. Michael Power following up fired in from a narrow angle squeezing the ball past Godmon into the net. The pressure was now all coming from the hosts as Rhule got his foot to the ball but it went over the bar.
The attacks were coming in waves as Scott broke into the Hythe penalty area requiring Mitchell Dickenson to cover well to keep the score at 1-0. The Cannons had to wait until the 31st minute for the first attempt of the game as Mitchell Chapman side footed the ball over the bar and then Dean Grant created some space to shoot with his left foot but it went straight into Cray keeper Andy McCorkell’s arms. However this was a brief respite as again Cray continued to look dangerous with Dawson playing the ball in but it was headed wide by Jay Leader.
However Cray deservedly increased their lead on 35 minutes with Scott catching the Hythe defence napping. He ran in rounding Godmon before placing the ball into an empty net. This seemed to shock Hythe into action as they created three chances before half time Chapman played the ball off to Charlie Webster whose shot went just wide and then a Ben Wilson free-kick floated just over the bar. With a minute to go until half time Hythe were unlucky not to pull a goal back as Wilson played the ball into Sid Sollis who curling attempt slammed against the cross bar.
Hythe were to make one change at half time with Chapman being replaced by Kieron Campbell and it seemed to be an inspired substitution as after 47 minutes Campbell charged in from the left rifling his final shot into the far corner of the net giving McCorkell no chance. The Cannons were unlucky not to draw level a minute later as a Wilson corner was met by Dave Cook but his header was cleared off the line. However this bright spot for Hythe ended and Cray took back control. Zak Henry drove the ball forcing Godmon to save well to his right and then the Hythe keeper had to tip over a free kick from Michael Frieter. Godmon was again in the action as on 57 minutes another free kick from Frieter found Power that forced him to push the ball away. However a minute later the result was put out of Hythe’s reach as Dawson bundled the ball home in a packed penalty area from a corner to make it 3-1. It could have been four as Power who was causing havoc broke through but his shot was saved by Godmon who came very quickly off his line to narrow the angel.
Things got even worse for the Cannons on 83 minutes as substitute Jerson Dos Santos was shown a red card after an incident with Henry who received a yellow card. Substitute Ryan Palmer who looked bright for the visitors when he entered the game slammed the ball against the post on 86 minutes and then at the other end Frieter broke through but shot straight at Godmon. This was followed with another attack from Cray that saw Ralique Lawrence steal the ball from Cook and force another save from Godmon but the Wands were not to be denied a final goal deep into injury time with Jerome Frederico breaking free on the right. He moved in and slammed the ball into the far corner of the net to put the icing on the home cake.
It was a chastening day for the Cannons from which they must learn if they are to maintain their aspirations for the season as they stay in seventh place ahead of next Saturday’s game at home to struggling Molesey.
