Hythe Town were given a lesson in finishing as new signing Omar Koroma got all four in Carshalton Athletic's 4-0 win on Saturday afternoon.
After an early period of pressure from Hythe including a Ben Wilson corner that curled around the post it was the visitors who took the lead on 16 minutes as Mickel Miller crossed to Koroma who slotted home from close range. Kieron Campbell was then to put pressure on the Robins defence and he is sent a looping ball that was deflected away for a corner by Danny Dudley. It was now Carshalton who were beginning to take control as a cross by Ryan Healey was headed wide by Koroma.
Koroma was in the action again as he laid the ball off to Ricky Korboa but Hythe keeper Will Godmon was on hand to block. The pressure was all coming from the Robins as Miller got hold of the ball on the left hand side and sent it across the face of the goal and away for a goal kick. Michael Aziaya threaded the ball through to Miller who forced Godmon into a save and then the keeper was on hand to rescue Hythe again as a cross from Tommy Bradford was headed on by Koroma. A defining moment in the game came on the stroke of half time as Hythe defender Mitchell Dickenson saw red after being adjudged to have committed a dangerous challenge.
Hythe, despite being down to ten men started the more positive in the second half as a Ben Wilson cross found Jordan Johnson-Palmer who headed towards goal but Carshalton keeper Billy Bishop made the first of a couple of point blank saves. At the other end after 52 minutes Korboa had several attempts to get a shot away before the ball was deflected away for a corner. Another free kick for Kieron Campbell on the edge of the area saw the ball sail over the bar.
Carshalton finally made their man advantage pay as they increased their lead in the 57th minute as a carbon copy of the first goal saw Miller feed Koroma who slammed the ball in. Koroma was looking more and more dangerous as he had an attempt deflected wide by Ryan Johnson who tracked back well. At the other Ryan Palmer fed the ball into Dean Grant who headed down but the effort was saved well by Bishop. Hythe were looking second best as a cross from Bobby Price was spooned over by Korboa and then a breakaway from Korboa played the ball into Miller with Godmon doing well to spread himself to save.
Carshalton made it three as Koroma completed his hat-trick as he curled the ball from the edge of the area around Godmon and into the net on 80 minutes. On 82 minutes Koroma put the icing of the cake as he yet again got on the end of a ball from Miller and fired home for his fourth to give Carshalton a well-deserved victory.
Hythe who dropped to sixth place will have an opportunity to get back on track as they entertain Greenwich Borough on Tuesday evening at Reachfields with a 7:45pm kick off.
