Hampton shut the Gate on Blues

The Beavers made it 3 wins from 4 National League South games with an overwhelming 4-2 victory over Margate last night.

Hampton started strongly and nearly got the opening goal as Harold Odametey managed to get on the end of the looping Christian Jolley cross but he couldn't forced the ball home due to the attention of the Margate defence.

However, it was the Gate who took the lead, midway through the first half. Michael Buchanan was left in space in the box, the ball came out him on the edge of the box and his shot through the melee left keeper Billy Bishop unable to react, the ball going to the keeper's left

The Beavers were starting to really come onto the home team and a gilt-edged chance went a-begging as a quick break down the left by Jamal Lowe gave him time and space to play a great pass in front of Odametey; Ward had to come dashing out to hack the ball clear a fraction of a second before the midfielder gathered the ball

On 38 minutes, Hampton did have the ball in the net through Nicke Kabamba but the referee called the striker for a foul as it was deemed he kicked the ball from the keepers hand while Ward was on the deck.

The second half saw more of the same as on 53 minutes, Jamal Lowe used his pace to out-do the defence. His cross field pass found Brendan Kiernan in the centre and the midfielder's attempt had to be smartly saved by Ward.

Margate were starting to find things hard going against the Beavers front four and the inevitable equaliser duly came just after the hour.  Lowe managed to beat the right back Lewis Taylor and round him to make towards goal, his opportunistic drive from a very acute angle slipped under Ward and rolled into the net almost unexpectedly, the first clue being the Hampton fans jumping up and down behind the goal!

Less than 10 minutes later, the Beavers took the lead.  A long Joe Hicks clearance between the centre-backs gave Brendan Kiernan enough room to sprint between them and dab the bouncing ball past the onrushing keeper.

Hampton were starting to look like they would run away with the game and with just over 10 minutes left, Christian Jolley found himself in the right place at the right time to stab the ball past Ward following a scramble in the box for his first Hampton goal.

Almost immediately, Margate got a goal back with Michael Thalassitis powering a header into the top corner to give the Gate a glimmer of a point, but that wasn't going to happen.

The Beavers controlled most of the last 5 minutes and just on the cusp of added time, Nicke Kabamba's cute flick beat Ward and the players on the line to give the Hampton boys a comfortable victory.
