Team Solent’s season revival continues

Team Solent’s slow start to the season appears to have been well and truly put behind them as they earnt themselves another convincing win this past weekend.

The University side eased past 5th placed Hamworthy United at Test Park winning 5-1, climbing up to 17th place in the Wessex Premier league.

The home side started off as they meant to go on, with fast paced play not giving the visitors a chance to settle.

Within 20 minutes Solent were ahead, forward Hisham Kasimu managed to beat his marker for pace and cooly slotted home to make the score 1-0.

James Taylor’s team did not let up there, as they continued to push and would have increased the scoreline if it wasn’t for Hamworthy goalkeeper Nick Jones.

Finally Solent doubled their lead in the 39th minute, this time Kasimu turned provider as he set up Silvano Obeng who made it 2-0.

It proved to be the home side who were the more ready of the two teams after the restart as they made the score 3-0 within seconds of the second half starting. Kasimu got his second goal of the game to effectively kill off the game.

The floodgates had well and truly opened as only a matter of minutes afterward Hamworthy grabbed a goal back through forward Dan Cann, then Tyrell Mitford reestablished Solent’s two-goal lead with a free-kick.

Hamworthy did not help themselves as their goalscorer Cann was sent off with 35 minutes of the second half still to play.

 

Solent grabbed their fifth goal of the afternoon with only 10 minutes remaining, as this time Kasimu squared the ball to Mitford who topped off a great performance from the rejuvenated University side.

Team Solent will hope to continue their good run of form as tomorrow they face a tough game away against second placed Blackfield & Langley.
