Uphill fight too much for Beavers in Trophy

Brave fight by Hampton 10 men but in vain...

Dowse was forced to make late changes to the lineup as Brendan Kiernan and Christian Jolley were held up at Dartford Crossing, meaning that Enock Soganile and Leon Solomon were brought into the starting eleven.

The Beavers were dealt a hammer blow in the 5th minute as Sam Howes was dismissed for denying a goal scoring opportunity. Trying the shepherd the ball out for a goal kick, Callender managed to nick the ball away from him and in the dash back towards goal, the Swifts forward was brought down.

Reserve keeper Luke Sheldrick had to take the field in place of Soganile, but he was unable to prevent Callender burying the ball into the back of the net.

It soon got worse for the Beavers on 19 minutes as Lewis Godbold converted Juan Luque's low cross with a simple finish from about 8 yards.

Hampton were taking a while to get going and with minutes to go before the half time break, Taurean Roberts' sweet shot from 25 yards was only just tipped over the bar by Sambridge.

Right on the whistle, Max Kretzschmar pulled the Beavers back into the match; his low shot to Sambridge's left looked to be covered but it somehow slid through the keeper's grasp and rolled over the line.

Brendan Kiernan and Christian Jolley were introduced on 54 minutes and the Beavers got back on terms soon after in a rather awkward way. Swifts keeper Sambridge had the ball in his hands just inside the area, Max Kretzschmar standing in front of him. The keeper needlessly pushed out at Max, catching him hard and full in the chest, enough to send him to the ground. The keeper was duly booked, the penalty was awarded and Max fired it home to level the scores.

The lead didn't last long though. In the 63rd minute, Roberts gave away a free kick just inside the Beavers half as they looked to break on a counter. From the kick into the box, the ball finally ended up at the feet of Godbold, whose shot on the turn beat Sheldrick.

Hampton were pressing on a regular basis and the home bench were looking worried as the Beavers made light of the disadvantage, and with 10 minutes left, Hampton looked to have been given a chance to level the score again.

Josh Casey managed to make his way into the area with a clear run, but was tripped as he tried to find a yard to shoot. Max Kretzschmar stepped up to take the kick, but this time Sambridge guessed it right and pushed the shot away to the relief of the home crowd, meaning Hampton's best chance to force extra time had gone.

Despite going out of the Trophy, the team gave as much as they could on the field, playing 85 minutes plus with just 10 men, and it shows their desire could not be questioned, as for periods, they were the better side.

Dowse will have a massive challenge to lift the team after this match, but we go again Saturday at Oxford City, to try and extend the unbeaten League record another week.
