The game started off positively for Ascot; a few decent chances were created, none of which were converted writes editor William Powell. Brendan Matthew came close midway through the half when he found himself alone in the centre of the box but to the disappointment of the huge Yella following, his weak header floated into the goalkeeper’s hands. Towards the latter stages of the half, Whitehawk created some fantastic chances but thanks to some resolute defending from the Yellas back line, the score remained level.
HALF TIME 0-0
The Yellas started the second half strongly and looked certain to open the scoring but some fantastic goalkeeping managed to keep them at bay. Hugo Sobte also made some unbelievable saves throughout the early exchanges of the half as both teams battered each other with chance after chance.
Whitehawk continued to bombard the Yellas back line heading into the last 15 minutes of the half and finally their persistent pressure was rewarded. In the 89th minute, Louis Collins managed to get on the end of a great cross and his header rifled into the bottom corner past the helpless Sobte.
Two minutes later Whitehawk doubled their lead. Sobte came out to clear confidently but he was beaten to the ball leaving Ryan Worrall one on one with an open goal and he slotted home easily to the delight of the home fans.
FULL TIME- Whitehawk 2-0 Ascot United
A valiant effort from the Yellas on the road against a very tough opposition sees them fall short of progressing into the next round. Our attention now turns to next Saturday where we play Hanworth Villa at the Racecourse Ground. #UpTheYellas
