11 goal thriller but Marlow end just short!

Valiant fightback from the Blues in second-half but game ends in quarter-final defeat.

It's not often that you see 11 goals in 90 minutes but this was one of those rare occasions and included a fighting come-back from Marlow who almost grabbed a draw at the very end.
With several players carrying knocks Manager Mark Bartley decided to rest them and included some new faces from the start with a couple also on the bench and with the home side taking the game to them early on it was not long before they were behind. Simon Grant had to be at full-stretch to push a header round his post in the 9th minute but 3 minutes later failed to hold a cross and the spilt ball fell into the path of Spyros Mentis who took advantage of the unguarded net to put the home side ahead.
Nine minutes after Hayes doubled their lead when Laste Dombaxe turned a low cross past Grant and the same player further added to the Marlow deficit in the 38th minute when finding the net yet again to make it 3-0.
On the stroke of half-time Kamaron English created and then failed to take a great chance to reduce the arrears but shot into the near side netting when well-placed.
Marlow started much brighter after the interval with Jay Welch forcing the me keeper to palme a well-hit shot over for a corner within minutes and this was followed very shortly by Kelvin Bossman driving in a fierce low cross from the right which was turned in by English to give the visitors a glimpse of hope. However this was soon to be extinguished as just 2 minutes later Hayes had the ball in the Marlow net through Scott Donnelly and it was 4-1.
Three minutes later and it got even worse as Duncan Culley took advantage of acres of space in the left back area and proceeded to slip the ball between Grant and his near post and the gap between the sides was increased to 4 goals. English managed to get the ball into the home goal again following a fine close passing movement that opened their defence to make in 5-2 - and once again the situation worsened still more as Chris Ovenden was adjudged to have tripped a home foreard in the area and Culey made it 6-2 from the resultant penalty in the 78th minute.
The remaining minutes could have seen a complete collapse but instead we witnessed a fightback that saw marlow score 3 times to put the frighteners on the home side.
Firstly substitute Curtis Chapple got along the left flank and crossed in low for English to touch in and it was 6-3 and he had somehow accumulated a hat-trick. Marlow continued to press and this time it was an English assist as Ovenden got the final touch from close-in to reduce the arrears even further at 6-4 and when Lee Barney was pulled down in the home area in the 90th minute he got up to stroke the resultant penalty in and make it 6-5 the few away supporters present were beginning to wonder whether they were about to see one of the really great escapes of all time - however it was not to be as time quickly ran out and so their favourites fell just short of taking this quarter-final to a penalty-shoot out.
