5th straight draw for Beavers means FA Cup replay
Duncan Culley's penalty saves Beavers blushes in an indifferent performance.
Hampton registered their 5th draw in a row, which as its The FA Cup, is not the result they really wanted.
The Beavers made a positive start to the game, but in the 10th minute, they nearly went a goal down. Scholars skipper Steve Brown got his head to a floated free kick, the looping header forced Sam Howes to have to leap to his right and push the ball onto the bar before it was cleared.
In the first 20 minutes, it was Sam Howes that was keeping in the Beavers in the competition as Ogunsola had a couple of clear cut chances that the young keeper had to save off his line as Hampton looked a little rocky in the middle of the park.
The Beaver's first chance on target came just before the half time break as Malachi Napa's shot from just outside the box was saved by Scholars keeper Laurencin, which the young winger followed up in added time, with a shot going just over the bar.
Napa was proving to be the most adventurous of the Beavers front line as his shot from 20 yards was just too high for Laurencin just after the break.
With 15 minutes to go, the Scholars nearly taught Hampton a lesson in finishing as David Sota managed to make contact with a cross into the box, which Howes couldn't get to, the ball going into the opposite corner of the net to leave the Beavers looking in trouble.
A mad 5 minute passage of play then gave the Beavers a chance, which they nearly threw away. A clear and obvious handball in the box saw the Beavers given a penalty, with just under 10 minutes to go. Unfortunately, Michael Kamara's penalty flew over the bar and into the Simpson Stand, continuing their poor run from 12 yards out.
Just minutes later, they Beavers got their second chance from the penalty spot; this time, Duncan Culley stepped up and blasted the ball into the back of the net to level the scores.
Deep in stoppage time, a melee erupted in front to the Scholars dugout, and after a minute or two of pushing and shoving, it settled down and the referee, after taking stock, dismissed one of the visitors coaching staff from the field.
This all means the two teams must try again on Tuesday to earn a place in the third qualifying round, and Dowse will expect a much improved display from the team if they want to get there.
