Another chance befell Hall on 27 minutes and this time his shot fizzed over the bar.

On 29 minutes Hall found his range and scored from eight yards. (0-1)

Immediately on the half-hour, Connor Stratton tested the keeper but a good save deflected the ball off his left-hand post for a corner.

From the corner Joe Tallentire put his shot from six yards over the bar.

On 41 minutes a diagonal ball from Jordan Clear found Merson Webb, who beat a couple of players, crossed, and top goalscorer Connor Stratton volleyed in from the edge of the penalty area to make it 0-2 on half-time.

Then Andover had their first and only shot on target but Joe Wooldridge, the Silchester keeper, saved well.

On 68 minutes Hall made it 0-3 and on 76 minutes Trent Barrington set up Webb to complete the scoring 0-4.
