MOONEY’S MAGIC AS BOSTON ARE SUNK
IT WAS a classic tale of two contrasting halves as Chester pocketed maximum spoils.
The Blues served up a well-organised and resolute display in the opening 45 minutes and then flourished as an attacking force.
It all meant that Boston suffered their third straight 2-0 home loss on the back of goals by Steve Howson and Dan Mooney.
Chester’s platform for success was laid when keeper Grant Shenton produced three excellent first-half saves to twice thwart Nicky Walker and also Nathan Arnold.
The visitors sprang to life in the second period, with sub Matty Hughes firing inches too high
But then came the breakthrough goal when Mooney’s 51st-minute corner was met by Howson, whose thumping header flew past George Willis.
Eight minutes later, Mooney broke free down the right and coolly beat the advancing Willis.
Victory could have been greater but for excellent Willis saves to deny Hughes and Mooney while a Craig Mahon power header flashed over.
Boston tried to respond and had a Walker goal ruled out for offside.
Meanwhile, blocked shots by Walker and Max Wright were all that the Pilgrims had to show for their efforts in the game.
