Hyde 1-3 Boston United

Hyde fell to defeat again against a dominating Boston performance

Boston started the game well, looking to attack from the off, and had the first chance of the game after a dangerous ball was whipped in to Dayle Southwell, but the striker couldn’t get his header on target. The Tigers had a chance of their own soon after when Pete Boyle’s header looped over the bar, before the Pilgrims went close again when Southwell was played through, but his effort went just wide.
Hyde then had a period where they threatened, with their best chances coming from Connor Hughes who as usual was lively.

It looked like Hughes was in at one point until Carl Piergianni made a superb last ditch tackle to stop the Hyde winger. Boston did capitalise on their good start and it had to be Southwell who opened the scoring. The Tigers had a good attack that looked to threaten but possession was given away cheaply and Boston broke, playing the ball over the top to Southwell who skipped past challenges from Perry Ng and Andy Pearson to stroke past Ed Wilczynski and give the visitors the lead.

Kyle Dixon nearly got Boston’s second not long after with a brilliant effort from 25 yards out which whistled just past the post and into the side netting. It wasn’t long until the away side did get their second though through Mark Jones on the 40th minute as Southwell latched onto a defensive error from Josh Brizell and squared it to Jones who couldn’t really miss, thumping it in from 6 yards out.
The second half was more of the same with Boston dominating possession, and they seemed happy with their lead, not really pressing the Tigers who in truth looked out of questions for Boston to answer. The Pilgrims did get their third of the game and really finished the game off on the hour mark when Dixon tapped in on the goal line after a slight scramble in the Hyde box.

Wilczynski then made a couple of saves to stop the score line from getting embarrassing, but in truth Boston didn’t really have to get out of first gear. A rare Hyde attack fell to Pearson of all people who skied a shot well over the bar, before the Tigers were handed a lifeline in the 82nd minute when Boyle wriggled through a few challenges to steal the ball and fire in. The Tigers were now rallying and Boyle tested Joel Dixon from long range with his shot swerving all over the place and the Boston keeper saved well. Brizell then had a shot from 30 yards out that dipped and forced another brilliant save from Dixon who tipped it onto the bar.

Unfortunately for the Tigers though it was a case of too little too late and they fell to a 3-1 defeat against a Boston side who were thoroughly professional and deserved all three points.
