Away cup match played on 19 November 2016.
Kicked off at 2:00 PM

Hythe went in to this game hoping to bounce back from a 4-1 home defeat. Close inspection of the pitch revealed that it could be used for downhill ski slalom.

Once again Hythe got off to an impressive start and took control of the opening exchanges.

After about 15 minutes Benno won an aerial battle from a goal kick, Dannie struck the ball from 35 yards and lobbed the keeper (with a bounce). Confidence started to go through the team.

After about 35 minutes and without Hythe managing to gain another goal, Stonechurch scored a scuffed shot from the edge of the area. Dazza dived 2 minutes too early and managed to evade the bobbling ball.

Just before half time Stonechurch took the lead through an off-side goal. Dazza pulled off fantastic save but the ball bounced around and somehow kindly fell to the striker who slotted home.

Rich Tobin was playing like Rooney so there was never any doubt about the result.

Now playing uphill, Hythe struggled for the first 10 minutes of the second half and Stonechurch were in full control. Then the Stonechurch keeper made another blunder and parried the ball out of the area only for debutant Andy to latch on to it and make the keeper look stupid with an inch perfect shot that nestled in the top corner.

With the match poised at 2-2 the only way this game was going to be settled was from a hero. Dannie put in a far post corner that Luke managed to put back across the area, even though he was being marked by 3 players, for Benno to launch himself at with a diving header that can only be likened to that of Keith Houchen from the 87 cup final.

By now Andy and Andy we're starting to gel as a new CM partnership and were starting to boss the midfield and Deano was seeing plenty of the ball to cause all kinds of problems.

The final goal came from another keeper error. The keeper decided to dribbled it out of the area to only play a 5 yard pass to Andy who scored in exactly the same way as his first goal.

The back 5 were solid throughout this game and the ref at the end of the game mentioned that he thought that he thought the two full backs were pulling all the strings.

Fantastic result from a fantastic team performance.
