Dulwich Hamlet 3-1 Hastings United, FA Cup First Qualifying Round, 02/09/17 | Match Highlights
By Paul Griffin
Highlights of Dulwich's 3-1 win against Hastings United in the FA Cup. Dulwich welcomed their Isthmian South guests to Champion Hill for this First Qualifying Round tie, but despite being favourites, they took a long time to hit their stride. The first half was devoid of real goalscoring opportunities for both sides, with Preston Edwards the slightly busier of the two keepers, but Hastings would go in ahead at the break when a corner took a couple of deflections before the ball struck Ollie Rowe and went in. Dulwich upped the pace in the second half, but it took until the 79th minute for them to equalise. Muhammadu Faal fired a shot goalwards, and after his shot was parried away, Nana Boakye-Yiadom scored the rebound for his first Hamlet goal. When it seemed the game was heading for a replay, Boakye-Yiadom had other ideas, as he picked up a Kenny Beaney pass before slotting home via the far post, before completing his hat-trick deep into injury time to hand Dulwich their place in the Second Qualifying Round.
