Burton Mail - - Sport - By BRIAN TRAIN

Woodville Rangers of the Bur­ton Sun­day League. Back row, from left: D Sum­mers (player-man­ager), J Davies, A John­son, B Tay­lor, N Sum­mers, A Sum­mers. Front row, from left: J Sum­mers, M Smith, H Ark­less, K Brown, L Ben­nett, M Lewis. NATHAN Sum­mers and Ash­ley John­son both scored twice as Woodville Rangers marched to a 5-0 win against Ashby Ivan­hoe, who fin­ished with 10 men.

Harry Ark­less also scored for Woodville in the Bur­ton Sun­day League Divi­sion One clash, while Ashby had Ke­iron Bexon sent off for vi­o­lent con­duct.

Ashby had the first chance of the game, Woodville keeper Bradley Tay­lor do­ing well to deny Marvin Spencer.

But Rangers were in front in the 10th minute when Jamie Davies surged for­ward from mid­field be­fore cross­ing for Ark­less to sweep the ball home.

Spencer then dragged a shot wide for Ivan­hoe be­foe they fell 2-0 be­hind in the 23rd minute.

Nathan Sum­mers seized on a mis­placed pass, broke clear and fired a cross-shot into the net.

Spencer con­tin­ued to be a threat for Ivan­hoe but Rangers fin­ished the half strongly as Jake Sum­mers and Mitch Smith com­bined to tee up Nathan Sum­mers, who tested keeper Jack Veitch with a fierce strike.

John­son then saw a shot hit the un­der­side of the bar be­fore Rangers made it 3-0 in the 45th minute.

Ark­less and Davies com­bined to re­lease Nathan Sum­mers down the right and he found the tar­get again with an­other cross-shot.

Early in the se­cond half, Tay­lor did well to deny Jor­dan Em­mer­son and then tem­pers boiled over in the 54th minute.

A strong chal­lenge by Nathan Sum­mers sparked a melee in­volv­ing play­ers from both sides, which re­sulted in a yel­low card for the Rangers player and red for Ashby’s Bexon.

On the hour, Veitch made a dou­ble save to deny Jake Sum­mers and then Nathan Sum­mers.

But in the 71st minute Veitch was ad­judged to have brought down John­son in the penalty area and the Rangers player stepped up to bury the spot kick and make it 4-0.

And it got worse for Ashby in the 76th minute when Nathan Sum­mers’ cross from the right was volleyed home by John­son.

Nathan Sum­mers went close to com­plet­ing his hat-trick but fired nar­rowly wide, while Ivan­hoe al­most grabbed a late con­so­la­tion when Emer­son’s ef­fort was ac­ro­bat­i­cally tipped over the bar by Tay­lor.
