Ten Man EP Beat Peacehaven 2-0

Having to play an hour with ten men EP put in a gritty performance to take all three points

With six first team players missing through injury, illness or suspension and playing with ten men for an hour of the match, after Scott Rafferty was sent off, goals in either half from Jake Heryet and Asa Nicholson wrapped up a 2-0 SCFL Premier Division triumph over Peacehaven & Telscombe at The Lashmar.

Scott Rafferty received a straight red card for a last-man tackle on 35 minutes but EP still managed to go on and get all three points.

Heryet had a good chance before he scored but his right foot shot went wide. Heryet’s persistence saw him force a Peacehaven defender into an error. The East Preston man kept his composure before slotting the hosts ahead from a tight angle after 21 minutes.

When Rafferty was brandished a straight red card ten minutes before the break, it looked a tall order for the hosts to hold on.

Sub Dave Matthews had a volley well saved on 72 mins which the Peacehaven keeper did well to push round the post for a corner. From the resulting corner Lewis Jenkins header was again well saved by the Peacehaven keeper.

As Peacehaven pushed for the equaliser on loan keeper from Brighton, George Bentley (pictured), made some great saves to keep the EP lead intact. In time added on Luke Brodie broke down the left and his pass inside found Nicholson with just the keeper to beat which he did and put the game beyond doubt.
