A GARETH Edey hat-trick led Chishill to victory against a battling Ashdon side on Saturday.
The visitors were unable to break their habit of conceding early goals, though on this occasion it was somewhat unfortunate as a harsh penalty decision led to Russ Drury saving the Villa spot kick only for Simon Moss to scramble home the rebound.
Yet they were able to hit straight back when Edey hit a left-foot shot into the top corner from the edge of the box before both teams hit the crossbar with long range efforts before going in level at the break at one goal apiece.
The second half was a tense affair with both defences cancelling each other out, and a stalemate looked the likely outcome until Edey's class shone through as he ran on to a back pass, side-stepped the 'keeper and rolled the ball home.
Villa responded strongly, bombarding Chishill's goal in the last 10 minutes, but the back four marshalled superbly by Oli Gardiner held strong.
