STOCK­TON TOWN 5 HEBBURN 3

HEBBURN TOWN came out on top in this all North­ern League eight-goal thriller.

Ben Dibb-Fuller scored a hat­trick as The Hor­nets stung 2018 fi­nal­ists Stock­ton. He opened the scor­ing in the 16th minute, pick­ing up the ball 25 yards out be­fore fir­ing into the right side of the goal.

The away side dou­bled their lead be­fore half-time, the ex­pe­ri­enced Lee Kerr the ar­chi­tect, and Michael Richard­son fin­ish­ing off. It was then three when Richard­son broke through Stock­ton’s de­fence in the 68th minute be­fore squar­ing to Dibb-Fuller for an easy fin­ish.

It was the same provider again as Richard­son swung in a bril­liant free-kick for Louis Storey to get on the end of and tap in from close range.

The Hor­nets were in cruise con­trol and when Michael Arthur got down low to stop a cross he turned it into Dib­bFuller’s path for the striker to com­plete his hat-trick.

Stock­ton got a goal back in the 81st minute through Fred Wood­house, which kick-started a late rally as he added a sec­ond and Pete Bul­mer turned in a cross fol­low­ing a de­flec­tion, but it was too lit­tle, too late. STAR MAN: Ben Dibb-Fuller (Stock­ton) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
