Hemsby 4, Waveney 2

IN the third round of the Cyril Ballyn Trophy, with both teams flying high in the league, this promised to be an entertaining encounter.

Hemsby were the first team to stamp any authority on the game. Lines passed to Chaplin whose cross set up Bevan to open the scoring.

Waveney were hitting Hemsby quickly on the break, and the back four of Chaplin, Fielding, Rowley and George had to be at their very best. Just before half-time Fielding mistimed a tackle, and as the ref judged him to be the last man, was shown his first red card for Hemsby. Bowman dropped back to right back to help keep the defence solid, and at half-time Hemsby were still winning 1-0.

Lines had to come off with a calf injury, and was replaced by Carter in a new 4-4-1 formation, and Hemsby still took the game to Waveney, soon going 2-0 up.

Hunt and Bevan worked well on the left, and when the ball found Bussell in the box he clinically finished off the move for a goal his selfless running and work rate deserved.

Bain came on to replace Bowman at right back, and Bevan came off injured and was replaced by Dixon. Dyble moved from the right to centre midfield in what was a completely new look midfield.

Guest had to be at his best to beat out a fierce shot, but couldn't do anything to keep out an effort when Waveney reduced the arrears. The lead was soon back to two, a free-kick from Dyble to the far post was touched in by Carter to make it 3-1.

With one minute left Waveney scored from long range to make it 3-2, but a goal from Dyble finished off any thoughts of a comeback

Credit must go to all the players for their amazing workrate and effort they put in especially when playing with 10 men for over 50 minutes.
