LIONS 12 – 0 VMFC
Goals from James H (3), Gabi Gabi (2), Robbie J (2), Mitch D (2), Owen D, Josh W and Andrew T
James H scored his 100th goal for the Lions in a rampant 12-nil win over Village Manchester.
James’ 100th goal was also the start of a first-half hat trick as the Lions roared to the top spot in the league.
Robbie J doubled the lead after he met Gabi’s lay-off. And it was Gabi who then put the home side 3-nil up moments later when he converted a deflected shot from Adam W.
Gabi continued to run the show. Firstly by switching the ball for James H to grab his second goal, then he got his brace after punishing hesitant defending by the visitors.
James H secured his hat trick in style with a clinical strike from Mat H’s through ball.
After the break the Lions continued to dominate. Robbie J met Mitch D’s teasing free-kick at the back post to double his tally. Owen N’s quick feet put the Lions 8-nil up before Andrew T converted a penalty to make it 9.
Josh W scored his first Lions goal when Owen N squared his attack to set-up a close range finish in the 6-yard box. Then Mitch D grabbed two goals in 5 mins to wrap-up the scoring.
