Despite what the programme says, this was played on 9th May at Hollinwood Lane. A rather damp Hollinwood Lane it was too ...never stopped raining throughout the game, but the players gave all and coped really well as the pitch gradually turned into a swamp.
CASHEL WALTERS opened the scoring in the 15th minute, hammering home from the edge of the box after good work down the right by Jarrod Westcarr. CARL WESTCARR also scored with a drive from 18 yards on 26, then COURTNEY HASTINGS calmly lobbed the Calverton keeper to add the third two minutes later.
Right on half-time, DARREN GARMSTON fired in a shot that the keeper let slip from his grasp, giving the Basford man a second chance to fire home. H-T 0-4
AARON HOOTON replaced Walters at the break, an added the visitors fifth goal on 52, racing in on goal before chipping the keeper, the ball ending up in the far corner of the net.
Another one-on-one saw CARL WESTCARR add the sixth, placing the ball to the luckless keepers left and into the goal. The next goal I actually caught on video - a superb 12 yard header by HASTINGS from a right wing cross.
The final goal was special, very special - pity I didn't catch this on video - it was a cracker. HASTINGS dribbled his way into the box, and with dazzling footwork left three Calverton defenders standing - the no.9 then had the skill to take a touch and pick a spot over the keeper and dink the ball into the roof of the next. What a way to complete your hat-trick - take a bow, Son!! F-T 0-8
