Six of the best in the se­cond half pow­ers Run­corn past Be­bing­ton

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

Run­corn Men’s II 6 Be­bing­ton Men’s III 0 RUN­CORN Hockey Club men’s se­cond-team earned the spoils with an ex­cel­lent 6-0 tri­umph over the third string from Be­bing­ton last Satur­day.

En­joy­ing home ad­van­tage, there was plenty of sup­port for Run­corn from en­thu­si­as­tic fol­low­ers at pitch­side at The Heath School.

There were plenty of goalscor­ing chances in the open­ing pe­riod.

How­ever, none were taken and the half ended goal­less.

Tak­ing the ini­tia­tive at the start of the se­cond half, Run­corn rapidly went ahead.

And within min­utes they had ex­tended the ad­van­tage to 3-0.

Cap­i­tal­is­ing on a some­what de­spon­dent op­po­si­tion, Run­corn cruised the rest of the way and bagged three more goals to seal a 6-0 win.

All six goals were net­ted in open play high­light­ing the ef­fec­tive­ness of the sec­onds.

The vic­tory also demon­strates how a rel­a­tively new group of play­ers has gelled so quickly.

Man-of-the-match was Robert Mault who was an in­te­gral part of Satur­day’s win.

There were also some no­table per­for­mances from Steve Cur­rie, Ri­ley Cooper and David Yard­ley.

The win saw the sec­onds main­tain their 100% record and en­abled them to move to top of the North West Hockey League’s Di­vi­sion Seven South West just three matches in.

Prior to this win, the sec­onds had de­feated Dee­side Ram­blers’ VI team 3-1 and edged Ne­ston’s VI string 2-1.

Else­where, the first-team shared a 1-1 draw with Alder­ley Edge’s IV string in Di­vi­sion Four South.

And Run­corn’s thirds were 2-1 win­ners over Whitchurch II in Di­vi­sion Eight South West.

That is three vic­to­ries in a row for the thirds fol­low­ing a 3-1 win over Ne­ston’s VIII and a 4-3 suc­cess against Ox­ton V.
