East Cowes Vics 4 - 0 Alton

Posted: 15.09.21

A midweek fixture on the Isle of Wight has always tested the squad depth and travel arrangements for individual players.

This league cup tie at East Cowes was always going to be a challenge and it turned out that way as Alton were eventually well beaten.

The visitors started brightly and were well on top in the first 25 minutes without creating a really good goal scoring opportunity.

The home side grew into the game and started to take advantage of every loose ball that came their way, there were a few too many.

Young Roux Hardcastle in the Alton goal stood up to everything that was thrown at him including a nasty challenge that earned the guilty party a yellow card.

In the latter stages of the half he made 3 top class saves before eventually being beaten just seconds before half time.

Alton huffed and puffed in the second half but the home side sensed an opportunity and their energy and enthusiasm suffocated the visitors.

The second goal in the 65th minute, a free header from a corner sucked the life and will out of the visitors.

Two more goals in the later stages reflected the home sides dominance and threat during the second half.

Cancelled ferries and closed roads on the journey home summed up the evening, in for 1:30am
