PEACEHAVEN’s goal-happy winning run continued on Saturday with a 4-1 thumping of Redhill in sultry Surrey.
Peacehaven went in to this game with a number of players out through illness. The weather was particularly warm at the kick off and it was an even game for the first few minutes.
In the ninth minute Redhill’s Ryan Briggs scored for Redhill, but Peacehaven equalised just seven minutes later when Ashley Rees crossed the ball to Rob O’Toole, who fired into the back of the net.
With Peacehaven continuing to push forward the ball went to Peacehaven’s Brad Murray, who netted to put Haven ahead.
Redhill had a couple of chances to get back in the game but, with 34 minutes of the first half gone, Rees was brought down in the box and the visitors were awarded a penalty, and Carl Dunk scored from the spot for the second successive week.
That saw Peacehaven go in 3-1 ahead at the break at the end of an exciting 45 minutes.
Peacehaven carried on their good first half performance into the second. However, Redhill did have some chances to get back in the game but couldn’t convert.
Peacehaven, meanwhile, carried on pushing forward and were showing they were the better side.
In the 79th minute Peacehaven got the ball upfield, where O’Toole was waiting to the control of the ball and score his second of the game.
That wrapped up a good victory and performance in which man of the match was Wes Millis.
The victory made it six wins in a row for the Tye, in which time they have scored 19 goals and conceded just four. They are set to hosts Worthing in the third round of the Brighton Charity Cup on Wednesday night, before entertaining Selsey in the league this Saturday.
