Heath Continue Good Pre Season
By Stuart Morgan
Heath continued their pre season at Hassocks FC toady and continued with another win
Heath put in a professional like performance to beat Hassocks FC in our 3rd pre season friendly at The Beacon this afternoon.
Heath enjoyed large spells of possession against a young Hassocks side and it took until the 18th minute before the deadlock was opened.
Luc Doherty made a surging run cutting inside before being tripped and Heath awarded a penalty that Callum Saunders stepped up and sent the keeper the wrong way.
Heath found the Hassocks back line resolute and the closest they came again in the first half was Karly Akehurst hitting the post with a strike just inside the area.
With an hour played Heath made five changes and just 8 minutes later they finally extended their lead, a corner in was headed back across goal by Melford Simpson and Karly Akehurst met it perfectly to head into the top of the net.
Heath wrapped up their scoring in the 87th minute when Max Miller hit a great drive from 20 yards that found the bottom corner.
It wasn't the last of the scoring though as the hosts had time to grab a consolation after a swift move down the right, the ball in found the striker that Josh Heyburn made a fine save but the loose ball was eventually smashed home.
Full Time Hassocks 1-3 Heath
