Worthing Minors Athletic 0 HORSHAM 6

Sunday 23rd October 2011

Arun & Chichester League

Horsham took just 94 seconds to open the scoring in their latest away league game against Worthing Minors Athletic. A positive start saw the ball crossed in from Adam Ruz on the left and the ball fell nicely for the unmarked Oliver East to convert right footed from 12 yards out.

The Hornets continued to press and, on 13 minutes, some quick thinking from captain Jordan Walser spotted a good run from Andrew Roberts and his long throw sent the latter clear to side foot home with ease.

The home side then started to get a foothold in the game as Horsham began to give the ball away cheaply. They were unlucky not to pull a goal back on the half hour mark when a well taken free-kick was headed onto the crossbar by the Minors' striker and in the goalmouth scramble that followed, their midfielder saw his effort also come back off the 'bar before eventually being cleared to safety.

Poor defending allowed Horsham to extend their lead when a long goal kick travelled over the half way line and the alert Callum Nash ran on to the loose ball before easily side footing the ball past a stranded home 'keeper to make it 3-0. The goal lifted the Young Hornets and Nash again went close with a header after some good work and cross from East down the left. But it was game over after 32 minutes when the impressive Roberts turned his man on the left hand edge of the penalty area and drilled a low left foot shot into the bottom corner. Tom Auston made a good save just before the break to ensure the Hornets went in 4-0 up.

The second half saw Horsham dominate possession and continue to create opportunities; the lively Nash saw his shot well blocked after a positive run. Ross Williams then hit the bar after a good passing move between Roberts and Ruz, before the introduction of Rueben Selby down the right that started to cause problems with his pace. And it was from one of these runs that Nash added his second, and Horsham’s fifth, as Selby pulled the ball back for Nash to finish with aplomb.

Athletic offered some resistance but their chances were limited to long range efforts, one of which just sailed past the right hand upright from all of 35 yards. Nash then completed his hat-trick with 18 minutes left on the clock when a great through ball from left-back Glenn Johnson sent the striker through and his header looped over the advancing keeper.

There was still time for what looked liked a perfectly good penalty shout to be turned down as Roberts was pushed over in the box, before Williams hit a shot straight at the ‘keeper when well placed, and Selby saw his right foot shot come back off the post.
