WINDERMERE men harvested maximum points from their NW League Div 6 North double-header weekend.

On Saturday, they beat Didsbury Northern 4s 4-0 with another great showing by the defence that gave the rest of the side the platform for a comfortable victory.

Youngsters Joel Clark, Stuart Morgan and Jordan Field all scored, along with regular first-teamer Mike Hodgson.

On Sunday, Windermere played their rearranged match with Morecambe 2s which was postponed in October because of a flooded pitch.

Once again, Windermere’s home-grown youngsters got stuck in and an always competitive match was decided by Steve Heyns drag-flicks at penalty corners, one in each half.

Heyns played a pivotal role along with Scott Santamera in midfield and Sam Crompton showed glimpses of his old form when he got behind the visitors’ rearguard.

Morecambe themselves played some neat, attacking hockey but their attacks foundered on the twin rocks of Neil Moysey and man of the match Dominic Quill who, together, anticipated most of the visitors’ moves in time to cut out the danger.

Goalkeeper and skipper Andrew Darling had a quiet afternoon but when the ball did get past him, at a penalty corner, young Rob Griffiths made a super stop on the line and then played the ball to safety.

Straight after the Morecambe match, Windermere’s Sunday Association side played Kendal and ran out 4-2 victors in a classic game of two halves.

Stuart Morgan made a great run into space to fire Windermere ahead and further close-range goals by ‘guesting’ first team goalkeeper Darling, and another strike by Jake Sanders, gave Windermere a 4-0 half-time lead. But Kendal stiffened their resolve in the second half and their first-team ‘support’, Ewan Galloway, reduced the arrears with a decisive shot at a penalty corner and then Thomas Rhodes connected with a terrific deflection to give Windermere keeper Dom Musetti no chance.
