Harsh decision turns game in Saints favour

Little seperated the teams until harsh penalty and red card

St, Albans City 5 Hungerford Town 0. Although we conceded an early goal, there was little between the two sides in the first half at a misty and murky Clarence Park, but a harsh penalty and the sending off of Rees Scott early in the second half swung the game sharply in the favour of the home side and we were fighting a losing battle thereafter as the Saints strengthened their second place in the league.
The home side were a goal up after only 7 minutes when a looping cross had George Legg struggling to clear and Lee Chappell bundled the ball in off the post.
We did get in some attacks down the left but appeared unable to get in a cross past the first defender and the home side were able to cut out any danger. Sam Williams was struggling and was replaced by Harry Goodger before half-time as the two teams found it hard to create a real chance and it was still 1-0 at the interval.
It became mistier in the second half< but was still perfectly playable as the game took a significant turn in favour of the Saints when Scott Rees was adjudged to have fouled Louie Theophanous, although it appeared to be the gentlest of touches, but Rees was sent off and Junior Morias despatched the penalty past Legg to give the home side what proved to be a commanding 2-0 lead, and we never looked like saving the game thereafter.
Legg raced off his line in an attempt to reach a through ball< but was unable to get a touch and Theophanous rolled the ball into the empty net to make it 3-0 and Dipo Akinyemi lashed home the rebound after Sam Merson had hit the post and Shaun Lucien deceived Matt Day to go on and to score the 5th goal and complete our heaviest defeat for a long time.
It was a struggle to get away through the crowded city centre and a long journey home.
