The Beavers won their fourth game on the bounce with a 4-1 win at the Beveree tonight. They were led by goals from Rob Hall, substitute Alfy Whittingham, and a brace from Ben Seymour. This gives Hampton & Richmond 21 points, and moves them ahead of the visitors, Worthing, in the table.
After a scoreless first half where Worthing saw much of the ball and caused multiple great saves from Adam Desbois, Hampton & Richmond came out firing immediately in the second half. Their first goal came in the 47th minute as Rob Hall’s shot deflected off a Worthing defender and rolled into the bottom right corner just past the keeper’s hands.
A foul on Ruaridh Donaldson in the 73rd minute gave the Beavers another great opportunity as Sam Deadfield sent a superb ball into the box and was headed on target by Luis Fernandez. It was saved by Roco Rees, but Hampton & Richmond quickly won the ball back. The home side were then given a penalty. Seymour stepped up to the spot and sent Rees the wrong way as he placed it perfectly in the bottom left corner.
Worthing got one back in the 77th minute when Danny Cashman found the bottom right of the net. However, Hampton & Richmond quickly restored their two goal lead in the 80th minute. A shot from Fernandez was mishandled by Rees and Seymour was there to put it into the back of the net for his second goal on the day and fifth of the season.
The Beavers fourth and final goal came in the last minute of added time from substitute Whittingham only seconds after he came on. The home-side will hope to make it five wins in a row when they face Torquay United at home this Saturday. Secure your tickets HERE
