THIS was an exciting game from the first whistle.

Hitchin had their 'keeper to thank for a string of good saves before Charlie Unwin crossed for Mitchell Rogers to strike home.

But the Cheetahs switched off and from the re-start Hitchin took just 20 seconds to equalise and they then scored a second before half-time to lead 2-1 at the break.

Knebworth were encouraged to keep on playing the way they were in attack as they were creating chances, but they needed to get tighter in defence in the second half. Despite Hitchin restarting the game in the second period, Knebworth won the ball and Charlie Unwin smashed a shot that rebounded off of both posts before crossing the line for an equaliser inside 15 seconds.

Then a speculative cross from Joshua Allen was punched into the net by the Hitchin 'keeper before Allen then scored his second and Knebworth's fourth to seal the victory and maintain the Cheetahs' lead at the top of a difficult division.
