Edgware put on a devastating first half performance, putting 4 goals past a Abbey Rangers side who coming into the game had recorded 5 straight wins conceding 1 goal.

Goals from Nile Waite, Hafid Bounyafe, Mo Kahdum and Theo Ofori ending the game as a contest before the interval.

Just as in previous games it was 'The Wares' who started quickly out of the traps, taking the lead after just 5 minutes.

A long pass by Perry Price found Nile Waite, in acres of space, taking his time, he placed the ball past Abbey's keeper Kerrison to make it 1-0.

The uptempo play from Edgware was exploiting the high line the visitors were playing and in the 23rd minute they doubled thier lead.

Rob Magwood's deep pass from inside his own half caused havoc in the 'Rangers' backline, Kerrison completely miss timing his attempt to catch the ball, which fell tantalising to Hafid Bounyafe who made no mistake to put Edgware 2-0 up.

By now Edgware were not just in the ascendancy, they were playing football of the highest calibre.

In the 26th minute Mo Kahdum produced a piece of magic, collecting the ball on the left flank, he slipped inside his defender and placed his shot perfectly for 3-0.

Micheal Anguzu in the home goal had little to do but when called upon his handing especially in the air was excellent.

The game was effectively over as a contest on 33 minutes such was 'The Wares' dominance, Theo Ofori placing his shot into the far corner following a assist by Kahdum to make it 4-0.

Other than a shot that cannoned off the bar and back into play, the visitors offered little as Edgware took a stunning 4 goal lead into the interval.

It was always going to be difficult to match the first 45 minutes and so it was as the second half was quite mundane by comparison.

Edgware's game management was carried out with efficiently and as the final whistle blew a very vocal home support celebrated with the players.

The win moves Edgware up to 2nd place in the league having taken 10 points from a possible 12 from their first 4 games.
