Windermere 10

Mossley Hill 0

North West Division Three

DESPITE being without three of their brightest youngsters - all playing in the England Futures Cup at Cannock - Mere soon had Mossley Hill penned into their own half and goals quickly followed.

A long corner saw Andrew Hartnett feed a great ball into the D for Liam Derome to score his first goal in Mere colours.

Goals two and three were then added from open play by Scott Santamera and Steve Heyns, before Mossley created some chances of their own that had to be thwarted by the ever-alert Dom Quill, Andy Hartnett, Keenan Quill and Louis Musetti.

When Mere did finally retake control further goals were scored by Will Dolman and Steve Heyns to give the home side a 5-0 half-time lead.

Mere dominated again after the restart and Matt Hartnett scored with a deflection from a Heyns delivery, and their first penalty corner of the match saw Will Dolman strike with a drag flick to make it 7-0.

Another penalty corner was converted by Matt Hartnett and then a change in formation allowed Tom Dolman to bag two more late goals to complete an emphatic win that maintiains Windermere’s 100 per cent win record.

Meanwhile South Lakes picked up a 4-2 victory at Lytham St Annes 2nds as they join a clutch of five teams on nine points in Division Three.

In Division Six South Lakes’ second team lost 4-0 to remain second from bottom on three points, while Kirkby Lonsdale picked up a hard-fought 3-2 win at home to Preston 5ths in Division Seven.

With West Derby losing 4-2 at home to Bowdon and Blackburn Northern losing 3-2, Kirkby join the latter on 13 points at the summit of the league, moving two points ahead of West Derby and Didsbury Northern.

Kendal’s home match against Rochdale was called off.
