Vikings thrash Pennar to go top

Published

on

HAKIN United moved to the top of Division 1 as they thrashed Pennar Robins 12-0 at the Obs on Monday night (Apr 30).

Pennar could have taken the lead when Mike Ryder went through one on one with the keeper but Hakin’s Adrian Devonald got down well to take the ball away from his feet.

Moments later the home side thought they had taken the lead when Leigh Marchant poked the ball home only for the goal to be disallowed for an offside which looked debateable.

However, it wasn’t long before Hakin did take the lead as Adam John’s deflected strike from the edge of the area found the bottom corner.

Woodrow then hit the post with a header before he saw another header, headed towards goal by Marchant but the ball was cleared off the line.

Hakin continued to press and they doubled their lead when Ben Steele sent a free kick from his own half into the box and Nicky Woodrow was allowed plenty of space to head the ball home.

Ben Fawcett then bagged the first of his four goals as he fired in to the bottom left corner from twenty yards out.

Another ball in to the box caused problems and Woodrow tapped the ball in for his second of the game.

It was 5-0 before half time as another ball was not dealt with and after Bradley Barrett saw his effort blocked, Fawcett was quickest to react to smash the ball in.

Fawcett went on to complete his hat trick in the second half and his fourth goal was Hakin’s 100th league goal of the season.

Jack Wilson also scored twice while Shane Walsh, Justin Harding and Ben Steele completed the rout.

The win means Hakin go back to the top of the table, level on points with Goodwick United but having played two games less.

On Wednesday (May 2), they play the first of those games in hand as they travel to Angle, who were beaten 23-0 by Goodwick at the weekend.

Then on Friday (May 4), the Vikings welcome Monkton Swifts to the Obs and with two games against Goodwick still to come, they will be targeting two more wins this week.

Pennar Robins will bring the curtain down on their season when they welcome Merlins Bridge to Bush Camp on Friday (May 4).

Greene’s double sinks Swifts

Published

on

MERLINS Bridge booked their place in the last 16 of the West Wales Cup on Saturday (Dec 8) as they beat Monkton Swifts 3-0 at the Racecourse.

A good crowd gathered to watch the game that was played in blustery conditions which caused problems for both teams throughout the match.

Neither side was able to gain an upper hand in the first half but it was the Wizards who eventually took the lead shortly before half time.

A slip allowed Joe Leahy in and went one-on-one with the Swifts keeper before finding the back of the net.

The windy conditions continued in the second half and Will Haworth came close to doubling the home side’s lead but his shot was saved.

They then made it 2-0 as Haworth crossed from the left for Nathan Greene at the back post who headed low and into the net.

Peter Thomas then played a good one-two with Greene but Thomas sent his shot over the bar.

Greene could have had a second soon after but, after the Swifts keeper had come off his line, he could only send his effort over the bar.

He wasn’t to be denied his second however as a through ball set him up and he fired low into the bottom left corner of the goal to make it 3-0.

On Saturday (Dec 15), Merlins Bridge return to league action with a game against bottom side Milford United at Marble Hall.

Monkton Swifts will look to bounce back as they travel to Herbrandston.
