Ten Man Guernsey take all points in an eventful game

By

Heath suffer jet lag as Guernsey turn on the style to pick up their first win in 6 matches.

Guernsey put their winless streak behind them as they made Heath pay for a poor first half performance.

The match started positively for Heath with both Josh Spinks and Karly Akehurst going close but the host quickly grew into the match and started to threaten with an effort over from distance and then a header just wide.

It seemed as if the hosts day was about to become more than challenging as Kieron Mahon was shown a straight red for a tackle on Lewis Finney in the 17th minute.

Heath looked to take advantage but Josh Spinks saw his effort well blocked after good work from Lewis Finney on the left.

Guernsey readjusted well to the loss of a man and soon started to excerpt preesure of their own, a header just over the bar was then followed by a big call for a penalty after Josh Spinks fell to the floor and the ball seemed to rest against his arm but the referee waved away any appeals.

The home side did open the scoring however on 31 minutes as Heath failed to deal with a run down the right and a square ball that was tucked into the corner by Carlos Canha.

The goal knocked Heath for six and they never really recovered, the problems were made worse on 34 minutes as Heath were cut open through the middle leaving Matt Loaring a simple finish past the helpless Josh Heyburn.

Heath still with an extra man looked for a way back into the game but again Guernsey put bodies on the line blocking any effort put their way.
Just before the half was up the Guernsey number 8 Charlton Gauvain scored the goal of the game picking up the ball just inside the Heath half and working the line past George Brown before cutting in and hitting an unstoppable effort into the top corner.

Heath were then handed a life line on the stroke of half time as Andrew Dalhouse broke free before being brought down in the box, Karly Akehurst who had converted last week stepped up with the final kick of the half but the keeper guessed right and made the save to preserve a 3 goal lead into the interval.

Half Time – Guernsey 3-0 Heath

Heath made a double half time substitution as they went chasing the match with Kane Louis and George Brown being replaced by Callum Saunders and Alex Laing.

The change saw Heath press from the off and only a brilliant tip over prevented Lewis Finney from pulling a goal back. The pressure did come good as Heath pulled a goal back just a minute later as Roddy was found at the far post and his drilled effort across goal was turned in by Andrew Dalhouse.

Heath then kept the pressure on but again could take advantage as a handball was awarded against Guernsey in the box signalling another Heath penalty. Callum Saunders this time stepped up but it was the Callum Stanton’s day as he again guessed right and made his second penalty save of the afternoon.

After surviving Heath pressure early in the half Guernsey once again settled back into the game, always looking dangerous on the break as Heath continued to look for a way back into the game.

The Hosts headed over at one end and Karly Akehurst fired wide at the other end.

The match seemed to be slipping away from Heath and another reshuffle was needed after Sean Roddy was no longer able to continue due to injury and replace by Vincent Follea.

As the game entered the final minutes Heath thought they had pulled a goal back when Andrew Dalhouse effort was stopped by keeper and post and Lewis Finney stabbed in the rebound but he was standing in an offside position and the score remained as it was.

Guernsey could have made it 4 with their final attack of the match but the effort was pulled across the face of the goal.

Full Time – Guernsey 3-1 Heath
