Hemel Hempstead v Comrades St Marys Cup

Tues 1st Nov 2011

St Marys Cup quarter-final


Hemel inflicted injury hit Berko’s biggest defeat since our formation, as the two division gap between the teams was in full evidence at Vauxhall Road, with Hemel fielding a strong side to book a St Marys Cup semi final trip to Leverstock Green.

Berko went two down in the opening quarter of an hour. Firstly, they failed to clear a corner and Ross Lafayette reacted quickest and hit the loose ball just under the bar. Then keeper Ed Farmer was robbed by Lewis Toomey who netted a tap in, to put the Tudors in control.

Berko then had their best spell of the match but goal chances were few and far between. Tyler Hatherly and Frank Jowle looking the most likely players to pull something back. However, Hemel increased their lead, although their third goal had an element of luck about it as Ryan O’Hara’s shot took a deflection off Jamie Gavin to go in at the near post.

Lafayette grabbed his second with a low shot early in the second half and O’Hara added the fifth to also complete his brace.

Berko tried a double substitution, but could still not find a way past the Tudors defence. Ashley Harewood- Williams came closest with a free kick that was tipped for a corner by Mike McEntagart. It was however a Hemel substitute, Marvin Williams, who completed the scoring, to seal the home side’s passage into the Semi-final.

Comrades: Farmer, Gavin, Rodrigoe, Hawes, J. Carmichael, Mead, Wardle, Rose, Bunker, Hatherly, Jowle. Subs. Harewood-Williams, O’Farrell, not used Clark, Boad.
