Brokenhurst 4 - 2 Alton

Updated: 23.08.17

Alton made the long journey to Brockenhurst in the Hampshire Senior Cup on Tuesday night and lost at the first attempt.

Alton gave a good account of themselves with the main difference in the sides being the finishing of Jude Mwachukwu who got all four Brockenhurst goals.

It could have been so different had Alton scored first, Both sides missed chances before Mark Corbett shot straight at the keeper when well placed.

Alton were forced into a change when Mark Taylor appeared to be stamped on after a challenge by Ronan Moore, two goals by Mwachukwu gave Brock a two nil half time lead and, then two more in the first fifteen minutes of the second half seemed to be game over.

But to their credit Alton never gave up against a side from the division above, a Taylor Watts strike reduced the deficit, almost immediately Watts had the ball in the net again only to be denied by a late flag from the linesman.

Alton weren't to be denied and Scott Sanderson ran on to Corbett's through ball for Alton's second. It was now all Alton pressure as Brockenhurst resorted to time wasting and kicking the ball away to keep their lead.

Watts had a pile driver parried by the keeper before the referee bought proceedings to a halt.

Next up for Alton they entertain Christchurch in the Wessex division one on Saturday.
