Matt Godden scored a hat-trick as Stevenage made light work of thrashing Northern Premier League side Nantwich Town to reach the second round of the FA Cup.The visitors were in the contest for 68 minutes at the Lamex Stadium but an inability to defend set-pieces proved to be their undoing.League Two Stevenage went ahead after 16 minutes from their first real chance, as Godden flicked in Joe Martin’s free-kick at the near post amid some loose marking.

Just before the half-hour mark, Nantwich almost drew level as Nathan Cotterell played in Harry Clayton and he forced Joe Fryer to beat away his well-struck effort.Stevenage eventually doubled their lead when Smith blasted in from Martin’s corner before the same combination finished the match as a contest, with Smith heading in off the bar.Godden claimed a double of his own with a neat finish into the bottom corner from yet another Martin assist before completing his hat-trick late on by diverting in Dale Gorman’s volley.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsStevenage1Fryer25Henry6Wilkinson4KingSubstituted forWilmotat 84’minutes3Martin8Beautyman2SmithBooked at 64mins7WhelpdaleSubstituted forGormanat 64’minutes19NewtonBooked at 35minsSubstituted forWoottonat 75’minutes24Godden11PettSubstitutes9Wootton15Samuel16Day17Gorman18Conlon20Vancooten33WilmotNantwich Town1Jaaskelainen2BourneSubstituted forWebsterat 83’minutes4Stair5Mullarkey3Wildin7MorganSubstituted forJonesat 65’minutes6Bell8Hughes11CotterellSubstituted forForbesat 75’minutes10Cooke9ClaytonSubstitutes12Forbes13Burzynski14McDonald15Jones16Rowntree17Brooke18WebsterReferee:Michael SalisburyAttendance:1,436Match StatsHome TeamStevenageAway TeamNantwich TownPossessionHome59%Away41%ShotsHome10Away7Shots on TargetHome6Away2CornersHome9Away4FoulsHome10Away10Live TextPosted at Match ends, Stevenage 5, Nantwich Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+3′ Second Half ends, Stevenage 5, Nantwich Town 0.Posted at 90’+1′ Foul by Tom Pett (Stevenage).Posted at 90’+1′ Courtney Wildin (Nantwich Town) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Goal!Posted at 89′ Goal!
