Sussex County Cup Quarter-Final

The first match of 2012 found Horsham U16s travelling to Hove Riverdale for a County Cup quarter final tie. An early strike by Hove forced a save by Lewis Blaney in the Horsham goal and that was immediately followed by a counter attack from the visitors, ended when Harry Smith’s drilled shot was stopped by the 'keeper. Horsham stepped up the pressure and were rewarded with much of the possession but it was Hove who managed to find the breakthrough when a throw-in took an unfortunate deflection into the back of the net.

Hove quickly doubled their lead after pouncing on a Horsham defensive error and the match then became a heated battle as Horsham pushed forward, trying to close the deficit. However, minutes before half-time Hove scored their 3rd goal.

H/T : Hove Rivervale 3 Horsham 0

The second half continued to see both teams battling but, despite the tenacious Jake Legrange going close, the Hove defence remained strong and Horsham failed to capitalise. An unfortunate sending off reduced Horsham to 10 men but neither side converted their chances, resulting in a disappointing result for the young Hornets and their first defeat in almost two years
