Gulls all at sea against ruthless Beavers

The Beavers continued their outstanding home form with a resounding demolition of Canvey Island at Beveree, with the match being over at half time.

After a nervy start by both teams in which Jay Curran fired over the bar following up a rebound off keeper Mark Smith, it took until the 25th minute for the first goal.

Jamal Lowe was bundled over on the edge of the box by visiting skipper Richard Halle and Nicke Kabamba stepped up to strike the spot kick. Conor Gough guessed right and saved the kick, Kabamba's awkward follow up shot struck the post before Josh Casey sidefooted home from 10 yards.

This galvanised the Beavers and it was nearly 2-0 just 5 minutes later as Leon Solomon's shot was saved by Gough; the rebound rolled across goal, and Kabamba just couldn't get enough on his attempt to force it into the net.

However, the second goal wasn't long in coming as on 35 minutes, Brendan Kiernan's shot from outside the box was blocked by Gough, the rebound came out just far enough for Nicke Kabamba to follow up and stab home the rebound under the keeper.

It didn't take long for the Beavers to make it 3-0 as Jerome Federico was left with enough time on the right to swing in a deep cross to the back post. There, having timed his move perfectly, was Nicke Kabamba, who was left with a simple close range header, despite calls for offside from the Canvey defenders.

With the halftime break imminent, and Canvey looking like they were wanting the break to come quickly, Tom Beere killed the game for the Beavers and made it four with a delightful curling shot off his left foot, which beat the diving Conor Gough into the corner.

This wasn't the first time the Beavers had gone in at the interval 4-0 up and the only question now was, could the defence keep another home clean sheet?

Just before the hour, the Beavers added the cherry to the cake with Nicke Kabamba's third; Brendan Kiernan's exquisite pass from midfield rolled into the striker's path and he managed to push it past the on-rushing Gough to seal his hat-trick.

The Beavers then proceeded to consolidate what they had although a couple of minutes after Nicke Kabamba's third, Canvey did manage to fashion a chance but Jay Curran pulled his shot well wide after a clearance rebounded into his path.

The work being done, it was only left for Hampton to close out the game, and this they did, registering their third consecutive home clean sheet and having scored 14 goals in the process.

After the match, speaking to FootballExclusives, Dowse was more pleased with the clean sheets than the goals. "I love attacking football, but give me a clean sheet any day. I love a clean sheet, and since Mark (Smith) has been back he's only conceded a penalty."

"It'll be a tough game at Brentwood on Tuesday night, but we'll change one or two things and go from there."
