Hyde started like a train, scoring inside the first minute, when wing wiz Chris Sutherland skipped away from a tackle inside the Ramsbottom half before driving forward at pace, cutting inside and pulling the ball back for Omry Perl to fire home from 6 yards. 1-0 Hyde
2 minutes later and Matthew Beadle scored from a tight angle but this was ruled out for offside. on 10 minutes a fantastic move released Omry Perl who ran into the box and took on the shot when a square pass to Mathew Beadle would have made it two to the Tigers.
With 29 minutes on the clock, Chris Sutherland was pulled down on the left hand edge of the box and quick thinking by Lawrance Hunter taking the free kick across the edge of the 6 yard box for Captain Paddy Miller to scuff the ball home. 2-0 Hyde
HT 2-0 HYDE UNITED FC
The movement and desire shown by the squad was exceptional today, and three goals in the second half no more than they deserved.
15 minutes into the second half, and Big Khamsuk took his goal tally for the season to eight, nicking the ball on the half way line before driving forward, playing a one two with Beadle and calmly creating space before firing home with his left foot from the left edge of the 6 yard box. 3-0 Hyde
On 65 minutes Chris Sutherland chased a ball into the right hand channel, smartly keeping it in play and beating his man in one move before driving into the box and firing a low shot through the legs of the Ramsbottom keeper. 4-0 Hyde
Ramsbottom were out on their feet, and substitute Peter Boyle wrapped up the scoring with a powerful header from a smart Chris Sutherland Cross on 91 minutes.
