THERE were some massive scorelines in the Tommy Rogers Premier League this week, writes Kevin Mulholland.
The Duck’s haul of seven goals against The Elm House paled in significance in comparison to Railway’s nine goals and The Tanner’s 12.
The only match that did not end up in a one-sided romp was Kennelwood’s victory over Toby.
Kennelwood 3-1 Toby
This match started really well with both creating chances early.
But although there were some outstanding chances to score, the half ended goalless.
The second half burst into life in the 58th minute when substitute Wilson chipped in from 25 yards to give Kennelwood the lead.
Toby replied in kind five minutes later when Jones levelled the scores but it was Kennelwood who finished really strongly with late goals from Mulrooney in the 75th and 80th minutes to clinch a useful home win.
Highwayman 0-4 Hare & Hounds
A one-sided encounter saw man of the match Dale Sealey grab all the headlines with a sublime hat-trick.
Sealey struck on 14, 56 and 60 minutes, with the fourth goal coming from Ash Dineley.
Duck Athletic 7-1 The Elm House
This was a fine flowing game of football which saw The Duck take the upper hand early on as Chesworth opened the scoring on five minutes.
Chesworth and Garth added further goals in the 19th and 26th minutes and the first half ended 3-0.
Elm House fought back to strike first in the second half as Stuart pulled a goal back after 56.
But dreams of a comeback from the visitors were emphatically ended as Duck took control in the match’s latter stages.
Duck simply stepped up a gear and hit further goals from Glieve (60 and 85), Garth (66) and Chesworth, who completed his hat-trick after 70 minutes.
The Tanner 12-2 Ashworth
As the scoreline suggests, Tanner took control of this game straight from the off.
Newton lead the way, bagging five goals in a clinical Sunday morning individual display – his goals coming after five, eight, 22, 36 and 67 minutes.
Newton’s fantastic five saw him clinch the man of the match award but The Tanner went on to hit another eight on top of Newton’s solo antics.
The impressive Goodier weighed in with another four goals for The Tanner, which came after 11, 26, 53 and 70 minutes.
King (68) and Nolan (16 and 19) added the others to compound Ashworth’s misery.
Ashworth’s goalscorers were Jenkins and Ashby, who got on the scoresheet on the 35th and 77th minutes.
With the score 8-1 at half time, Ashworth were never in this game.
Village Inn 0-9 Railway
This was a one-sided game as Village could only field 10 men and Railway took full and emphatic advantage.
Storey opened the scoring with a quickfire hat-trick in the third, fourth and eighth minutes.
Bowen added two (after five and 49 minutes), Bennett another two (23 and 62) with Newell (27) and Jackson (53) rounding off a resounding victory.
