WELLAND JUNIOR LIONS 9, CALLOWBROOK SWIFTS 0
11:20am Saturday 7th February 2009 in Sport
WELLAND put their recent disappointments behind them to turn in an impressive performance against Callowbrook Swifts.
Whilst the score line reflected Welland’s dominance it was a harsh result for Callowbrook’s players who never gave up. It was particularly harsh on their goalkeeper who had made a series of good saves to keep the score in single figures.
Sam Whitton opened the scoring when his goal-bound shot was deflected away from the keeper’s reach. Jim Smith added a second and Jonny Amery extended the lead to three before half-time. During the break Oliver Latham-Jones replaced Hayden Coley in goal but he was only a spectator as Welland continued to press throughout the second-half.
Smith added his second before Henry Dyde and Lewi Hobbs grabbed a goal each. Whitton and Amery then completed their braces before Smith finished off the scoring, and his hat-trick, with a powerful shot.
