Joe Scott makes it ten goals in seven matches
Isthmian League North – U21
WALTHAM ABBEY 0 HORNCHURCH 1
Sub – Aiden Bailey n/u
As it happened – (with thanks to Peter Butcher)
4 mins – Jake Piper moved up for a corner and his near-post header was cleared off the line.
26 mins - Billy Pearce demolished in the air by Andrew Charidza, no penalty given and, moments later, Joe Scott hauled back by his short, no penalty given.
48 mins - Didier Nicolas beat the Hornchurch offside appeals, moved towards goal, and his shot crashed against the bar.
55 mins - Sonny James for Ware found himself all alone eight yards out, but shot wildly over the bar.
56 - Pearce sent clear in the inside-left channel, squared it cleverly for Joe Scott to fire home from the edge of the box. Super goal, and Scott’s tenth goal in seven matches.
75 mins – Courtney Yates comes on as substitute, but the linesman insists he is not listed on the teamsheet. The Hornchurch secretary had to sprint to his car and back to fetch the teamsheet – and yes, Courtney was listed on the teamsheet.
And one other highlight - Jake Piper was scythed down by a full-speed two-footed off-the-ground challenge nowhere near the ball; the ref whistled straight away, shouted 'no foul' and gave a dropped ball.
Overall Waltham Abbey had more chances but on the whole Hornchurch deserved to take the points.
