MATCH REPORT: Sevenoaks Town 3-1 Ramsgate FC
Ramsgate FC fell to a 3-1 defeat away to Sevenoaks Town on Saturday afternoon.
A double from Louis Collins and a solo effort from Frankie Sawyer ensured all three points as Kane Rowland’s consolation goal proved to count for nothing on the day.
Bode escaped his marker in midfield, travelled forward and space opened up for the shot, and he forced a good save from Patrick Lee inside 10 minutes.
KEY MOMENT: Straight at the other end of the pitch, Sevenoaks took an early advantage through Frankie Sawyer. From the incoming corner, Jack Miles was first to the ball who headed into Sawyer in a dangerous position, and he was able to convert from close range.
Jack Morrell went close to goal with a free-kick from 20-yards but a tiny deflection off the wall put the ball out for a corner.
KEY MOMENT: Sevenoaks doubled their lead on the cusp of half-time as Nick Treadwell was caught out at the back, and Louis Collins, who was through on goal, capitalised to increase their advantage.
HT: Sevenoaks Town 2-0 Ramsgate FC
Matty Robinson thumped an effort over the bar from the edge of the 18-yard box after falling to him kindly in what represented the first chance of the half.
KEY MOMENT: Louis Collins grabbed his second of the afternoon to put Sevenoaks three goals ahead. Collins was left unmarked and in space inside the box and was played in by Frankie Sawyer on the right to place into the back of the net. Far too easy for the home side.
Rams striker, Kane Rowland, made his presence known when he went close from 25-yards as his effort flailed over the bar. A decent attempt having only just come onto the pitch.
Moments later, Tyrell Mitford had a wonderful opportunity to pull a goal back for The Rams. Miller beat the defender on the right-wing, drove inside and put it on a plate for Mitford unmarked inside the box. His effort was scuffed and wide. The forward will know he should do better.
With a quarter of an hour to go, Paxman, from the right, whipped a cross to Robinson at the back post, but his shot went over the bar.
KEY MOMENT: Kane Rowland managed to get himself on the scoresheet late on to offer Ramsgate a mere consolation. Miller floated a cross in from the right and Rowland did well to get ahead of the defender and head into the bottom right corner.
