AFC Hayes overcome Tring Athletic in FA Cup Preliminary Round
After an early scare AFC Hayes comfortably progressed to the next round of the FA Cup on Saturday3rd September by defeating Tring Athletic 4-2
Losing the ball just outside the visitors goal area allowed Tring to quickly move forward & after some slack defensive work Anthony Fields opened the scoring for Tring (0-1)
Things got even worse for AFC Hayes when after 20 minutes a poor defensive clearance fell kindly for David Whicker who gave Simon Grant in the home goal no chance with a superbly struck shot from outside the area.(0-2)
This seemed to galvanize the home side & within a minute MATT WOODS had halved the deficit with a shot from just inside the visitors area giving Underwood in the Tring goal no chance.(1-2)
Four minutes later AFC Hayes were level when after several goal attempts were blocked the ball fell for DANNY VINCENT to score.(2-2)
AFC Hayes were now looking to push forward & on 41 minutes Matt Woods
broke through but was impeded in the box & from the resultant penalty ROSS AHIR made it 3-2
After the break AFC Hayes gradually got on top with Woods hitting the post but with 10 minutes remaining MATT WOODS scored his second & AFC Hayes 4th to ensure the hosts progressed to the next round where they will meet Hendon on 17th September.
