Eastbourne struck Lowe by Jamal double
The Beavers registered their second win of the season with an ultimately comfortable 3-1 victory over a physical Eastbourne team.
The win left the Beavers as only one of four team with 100% records so far this season in the National League and by the end, it was well deserved.
Hampton suffered a blow early on as keeper Aaron Howe had to be substituted with what is thought to be a hamstring injury, with Billy Bishop coming off the bench as an able stand-in.
A few minutes after that, the referee had to leave the field with a similar injury, and the call for a suitably qualified spectator went out. One came forward and after a 20 minute delay, the match continued with the senior linesman Damith Bandara taking over in the middle.
The pace in the Beavers lineup was giving the Eastbourne defenders some problems with Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick and Harold Odametey providing some devastating thrusts.
Both players had chances to give the players the lead; on 15 minutes, Odametey's shot from the edge of the box was blocked, then 5 minutes later, Shaquille had an attempt blocked at the near post by the Eastbourne keeper Lewis Carey.
Hampton were clearly the team creating the better chances and after SHP had lofted a shot over the bar, Eastbourne took the lead against the run of play.
Michael Kamara was penalised as he jumped to try and clear a header; after the referee had awarded the penalty, Nathaniel Pinney stepped up to bury the kick past Bishop.
The visitors weren't able to keep their lead for long. 5 minutes (approximately) before the break, Boro captain Ian Simpemba brought down Nicke Kabamba in the box; leading scorer Tom Jelley hit almost the perfect penalty to beat Carey, the ball going in off the inside of the post.
Level terms didn't last long as just 3 minutes later the Beavers grabbed the lead. Lewis Carey didn't deal with a cross into the crowded box well enough; the ball came to Jamal Lowe on the edge of the box, and he placed his shot accurately past Carey and into the back of the net.
Eastbourne came out for the second half with a determined look and the weekend's hat-trick hero, Elliott Romain, forced a good save out of Bishop within 2 minutes of the restart.
Baptista was starting to get involved more in the game and Billy Bishop had to be well alert as the midfielder's 25 yard free kick was dangerous enough for the keeper to have to push it wide.
Hampton regained some of their drive and after Jamal Lowe had had a saved by the keeper, Bishop earned his money with an amazing point blank save in the box from Taylor.
The visitors were still being troubled by the pace up front from the Beavers and they paid the penalty with some 10 minutes to go.
Nicke Kabamba produced a neat flick over the heads of the defence, Jamal Lowe had the pace to get in behind the back four, and he finished with some skill past Carey to seal the points for the Beavers.
Eastbourne nearly nicked a second goal just after this as Taylor found himself with an almost clear goal to aim at but a great challenge by Leon Solomon, arriving in the nick of time, sent the ball out for a corner, and the points were staying in TW12.
