LEWES HIT FOR SIX
Two goals from Reece Beckles-Richards, along with strikes from Zack Newton, Ryan Moss, Amadou Kassarate and Mo Camara ensured Cheshunt bounced back to winning ways with a emphatic 6-1 away triumph on the south coast over Lewes.
Craig Edwards made 3 changes from the midweek loss to Hornchurch, with Tommie Hession-Harris, Mo Camara and Ibs Diallo dropping to the bench in place of Taylor Miles, Joe Re and the returning Amadou Kassarate.
The match got underway at ‘ The Dripping Pan’ and got off to the worst possible start for the visitors as barely two minutes in, Sean Cronin was robbed of the ball by Dayshonne Goulding who sped away and tucked the ball home for Lewes first home goal in the league since the 9th November to give them the lead inside two minutes.
The Ambers looked for the instant response and it nearly came, as Reece Beckles-Richards cut inside and cannoned an effort off the crossbar. The visitors weren’t to be denied for long however, as the ball fell to Jamie Reynolds who’s shot was superbly saved by Nathan Stroomberg-Clarke, Ryan Moss’s follow up was also somehow blocked but Beckles-Richards was on hand to prod the ball home and level the score on 19 mins.
Lewes’ James Hammond had a free kick being saved by Harry Girling and The Ambers Amadou Kassarate flicked a long throw into the arms of Stroomberg-Clarke. The Ambers had the final chance of the half too, with stunning play between Taylor Miles, Moss and Joe Re, with the ball finding it’s way out to Tanasheh Abrahams who’s cross just evaded Moss and the onrushing Re.
HT – Lewes 1-1 Cheshunt
The second half started in similar frantic fashion to the first, with the Ambers bursting down the right with Reece Beckles-Richards, who’s first cross was blocked but his second was perfect and it flew right across to Ryan Moss who chested the ball home to put Cheshunt in the lead on 48 mins. Alex Mallins tried to drag Lewes straight back into it, but his free kick was well saved by Girling, with Cheshunt then going straight back up the other end, and Zack Newton cutting the ball back to Beckles-Richards who’s effort was saved really well by Stroomberg-Clarke, and it was the Ambers number 10 threatening again with half an hour left, as Abrahams found him but his effort was superbly clawed away by the Lewes stopper.
Cheshunt weren’t to be denied for long as two goals in 7 minutes effectively ended the match, with the first coming through Amadou Kassarate as the ball fell to him from a Taylor Miles corner and he squeezed the ball home on 67 mins, with the fourth not being too far behind, as Joe Re’s effort was blocked and it fell to Beckles-Richards who turned and spun and lashed the ball into the corner on 74mins for his second and Cheshunt’s fourth.
The ever tricky Zack Newton was next to be denied by Stroomberg-Clarke after he got in behind, but yet again, the fifth wasn’t too far away as he was fed in by Beckles-Richards and Newton smashed the ball home, for a well deserved goal from the Cheshunt number 7 on 88 mins.
The scoring was rounded off in added time, as two second half subs, Mo Camara and Ethan Nelson-Roberts combined with the former prodding the ball home with virtually his first touch.
