Tuohy keeps Hornchurch on target

Defeat hits Romford’s hopes

Martin Tuohy’s double helped Hornchurch to a 4-0 win over Carshalton to keep their Ryman Premier Division play-off hopes alive.

Jonathan Hunt broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time and the introduction of Lewis Smith proved to be influential in the second half.

Smith fired just over early on, before Hunt’s superb ball over the top found Tuohy, who made no mistake with a cool finish.

Frankie Curley finished off a superb flowing move, started by Smith, to make it 3-0 and Hornchurch completed the emphatic second half showing when Tuohy fired home a pass from substitute Ashley Taylor-Forbes.
