EVO-STIK DIVISION ONE CENTRAL
Godalming Town 1
AFC Hayes 3
TONY Mendy’s brilliant hat-trick saw 10-man AFC Hayes topple Evo-Stik Division One Central league-leaders Godalming Town at the weekend.
Mendy struck twice in the first half and once in the second as Hayes fought to victory with 10 men following Jack Buckle’s dismissal on the hour.
The Brook took the lead as early as the eighth minute when Mendy broke free from the Town defence and rounded Tom McNeil before passing into an empty net.
It was an action replay 10 minutes later as Aban Majeed released Mendy and the speed merchant nipped in to take it around the Godalming keeper again for his second.
Godalming got their act together after the interval and pulled one back from the spot on 58 minutes when Charlie Crane was penalised for a foul in the area.
Two minutes later and Buckle was shown a red card to leave Hayes to try and hold onto the three points for the remaining 30 minutes with a man disadvantage.
Despite that blow, the visitors continued to bomb forward and when Lawrie Shennan’s shot was saved, Mendy was on hand to stab home his third and put the game to bed.
