Both sides were only able to field 10 players a side for this fixture, but it was Romsey’s omissions that appeared to have the greater impact as Andover scored freely in the first half to open up too greater lead for Romsey to catch.

Romsey found themselves 0-3 down after 15 minutes as they adjusted to missing regulars in defence and midfield. Luke Hammond in goal having little chance as Andover scored from penalty corners.

Nick buck took command and with James Manning and Hugh Davidson in defence started to build more creative moves to avoid the game drifting away from Romsey.

Finn playing in centre midfield and support by Ben Davidson from the U14s started to play some smart passes to Chris Harwood and Toby Hill, who was beginning to make in roads in to the Andover D.

It was Hill who pulled a goal back for Romsey with a fine strike inside the post, and then he and Ben Ellis set up David Forgan who pushed a shot inside the post and keeper to bring the scoreline back to 3-2.

Romsey needed to hold this until half time, but Andover’s striker who had immense pace twice broke clear and scored two goals in two minutes to leave it 5-2 at half time.

Romsey could easily have scored 3 goals to equalise, but found themselves 7-2 following Andover penalty corner routines that passed through the Romsey defence.

However, Romsey scored two more goals through David Forgan, who scored his third hat trick of the season and made the last 55 minutes of the match an even 4-4 scoreline, although Romsey lost 7-4 overall.
