Hume City have continued their unbeaten start to the 2020 NPL campaign after putting 4 past a struggling Melbourne Knights side.
The away side asserted their dominance from the opening whistle and were denied a clear penalty, after Josh Bingham was brought down inside Knights box in the opening minutes of the game.
As the first half wore on, Stevie Hewitt continued to pull the strings in midfield which saw his side continue to create goalscoring chances.
Hume finally broke the deadlock at 32 minutes when Danny Dixon’s long ball found an onside Mitch Cooper, whose composure saw him slot in Hume’s first of the night.
Minutes later, it was James Brown who added his name to the scoresheet after Knights’ inability to clear a Stevie Hewitt corner saw Brown volley in Hume’s second goal of the night, from an impossible angle.
At the 39th minute Hume managed to clinch their third goal of the night, after Stevie Hewitt scored an arguable “Goal Of The Year” contender after his 50-yard screamer shocked the entire crowd.
The halftime break came as a breath of fresh air to Knights after conceding 3 goals in the opening half. Nick Hegarty on the other hand was ecstatic after how clinical his side had been in 45 minutes.
The second half saw Hume get their fourth goal of the night after a menacing Mitch Cooper managed to dribble past his defender, which eventually saw his cross find the back of the net courtesy to a Knights own goal at 48 minutes.
Knights coach Stuart Munro decided to play a high line which eventually saw them pull two goals back thanks to Hamish Watson (57 minutes) and Caleb Mikulic (87 minutes).
The full-time whistle saw Hume City’s travelling red and white army erupt with excitement after securing their fourth consecutive victory of their 2020 NPL campaign.
Hume City now have their sights set on Round 5 which will see them welcome Bentleigh Greens SC to ABD Stadium on Saturday the 14th of March. Kick-off will go ahead at 7:30pm.
