Star Man. Mo Camara Cheshunt
The home side started brightly with striker Rowan Liburd heading wide & Zack Newton having a shot tipped over & one go wide, as the game progressed St Neots grew into the game, Declan Nche at the heart of everything creative & Tremayne Charles dangerous playing off the last man. The visitors took the lead from a free kick on the right, swung into the danger area with Harvey Becket on hand to touch home from close range. Andre Hasnally could have doubled the visitors lead but poked wide when put clean through. Returning keeper Preston Edwards kept Cheshunt in the match with two smart saves, before Zack Newton stepped up, taking responsibility in front of goal to pinch a ball off a team mates toes & drill a cross shot into the far corner to level.
The second half saw Cheshunt dominant, forcing multiple corners, Enock Ekongo headed wide unmarked at the far post, but then a Joe re shot deflected to Rowan Liburd whose shot was turned in by Brandon Adams. Substitute Dajon Golding twice set up Adams for strikes on goal but St Neots keeper turned both far post shots away the stretch. With minutes remaining St Neots made changes & threw everything long, Cheshunt picked up a flurry of yellow cards defending the onslaught, and with time added on enjoyed substitute Reece Beckles Richards secure the match with a trademark curled shot from 20 yards into the top corner.
