Wednesday, March 29, 2017

 

Three goals in the space of the opening 11 minutes helped Sevenoaks Town beat league leaders Ashford United 4-0 at Greatness Park.

 

The game proved a difficult one for United's goalkeeper Adam Highsted whose first job was to pick the ball out of the net inside the first 50 seconds as Keiron McCann tucked away the opener.

 

Joe Bingham added the second four minutes later, before Harrison Carnegie added the third.

 

Town almost got a fourth when Andy Irvine, who scored the winner for Bearsted to beat United a fortnight ago, before moving to Oaks the following week, blasted a great chance over the bar.

 

United took half an hour to register their first chance, Shaun Welford seeing his effort cleared off the line, before Adrian Stone went close twice.

 

Highsted, making his United debut against one of his old clubs then raced off his line to block another Bingham effort with his chest on the edge of the box.

 

United were a different proposition in the second half, Welford seeing an early chance tipped over the bar by home goalkeeper Rob French.

 

Richard Avery then saw his effort deflected over the bar, before Welford was denied again by defender Tom Ripley's block on the edge of the area.

 

Stone and Welford both went close, before the home side added their fourth Bingham converting his second with a penalty 11 minutes from time after Highsted earned himself a booking for pulling down substitute Byron Walker.

 

Palmer saw his shot saved, before Highsted foiled Walker as he looked set to score a fifth in stoppage time.

 

Davisson then got his marching orders following two yellows.
