League leaders too strong for Horsham

Peacehaven, the runaway leaders of the league, continued their march to a second successive league title with a victory against Horsham on Wednesday night.

Despite the 1-4 scoreline the Hornets put up a good show and produced some of the best football they have played all season. However goalkeeping errors and lack of firepower up front prevented them getting anything from the match.

Surprisingly given the quality of the opposition Horsham were probably the better side during the first half but found themselves two goals down at the break due to two howlers from keeper Mark Zawadski. Following on from recent costly mistakes against Folkestone and Hythe Town, Zawadski again gifted goals to the opposition and left his side with a mountain to climb to get back into the match.

During the second half Horsham continued to play well but the quality of their opponents shone through and Peacehaven went further ahead with a goal on the hour and another 10 minutes later.

Substitute Michael Death scored the goal of the game late on but it turned out to be only a consolation for the home side.

Manager Charman will take heart from the spirited Horsham performance and the never say die attitude that they showed until the final whistle but will be concerned with the errors at the back and the lack of firepower up front.
