Hamworthy United sit third in the Wessex Premier Divison after beating Hythe & Dibley 2-1 at The County Ground
On a cold wet Tuesday night in Hamworthy, the Hammers extended their unbeaten start to the league campaign by beating bottom of the league Hythe and Dibden 2-1 at the County Ground.
The first half was dominated by Hamworthy possession with the opposing team unable to really get a hold of things and struggled to settle into the game.
Both teams had chances to get ahead in the first half with Hamworthy having the more dangerous of the chances. Vventually the home side's hard work paid off with a goal from Matty Neale after just 25 minutes on the clock.
Hamworthy doubled their lead in the 40th minute as Cam Munn used his skill to weave past defenders inside the box before slotting the ball home to give the Hammers a two-goal advantage going inot the break.
The second half got underway with the away team kicking off – it started well for the away side as they settled into the game but Hamworthy still looked the more dominate side. But 57 minutes in, and after a fumble at the back for Hamworthy, Hythe striker Sam Woodward put the ball past the Hamworthy keeper to keep his side in the game.
However, the goal from Woodward was not enough and despite after a few more chances at both ends of thepitch, the game finished with Hamworthy taking all three points
After the game Hamworthy manager, Tim Sills, spoke to NERVE SPORT: “At the end of the day we are happy with the three points
“ (We are) very happy with our first half performance and should have probably gone into the break three or four up, not two. Then obviously (we) gifted them a goal and that’s the disappointing thing."
NERVE SPORT also spoke to goal scorer Munn who said: “This was my first game back in six weeks so not too bad to get a goal.”
The Hammers how now streched thier unbeaten start to the campiagn to sixteen games and sit third in the Wessex Premier Division with two game sin hand on league leaders Horndean who are seven points clear at the top.
