HELLENIC LEAGUE: Super seven for Highworth
6:00am Monday 28th October 2013 in Sport
HIGHWORTH manager John Fisher was full of praise for his side after they dished out a footballing lesson to struggling Holyport in the Hellenic League Premier Division, writes CHRISTOPHER PANKS.
A TJ Bohane hat-trick helped the Worthians to a 7-0 victory at the Elms and Fisher believes his side could even have had more “It was a great team performance. We scored seven, but no disrespect to our opponents it could have been 12 in truth,” said Fisher.
“TJ got three and could have had six and we had four one-on-ones which we didn’t take full advantage of.”
The hosts started brightly but had to wait until the 26th minute for their first goal, with Ryan King charging to the by-line before picking out Tony Joyce, who calmly converted.
The scorer turned creator five minutes later as Joyce crossed for skipper Bohane to head home his first at the far post.
Bohane claimed a second just before the break, tapping home after good link-up play between Brad Clark and Lewis Page had caused confusion in the visitors’ defence.
A minute after the break, Highworth had another as King was put in by Bohane and he struck low across the keeper.
On the hour mark it was five and again Bohane was involved as he played a great pass to Aaron Maximen, who made no mistake from 10 yards.
With 10 minutes to go, Bohane’s impressive performance was capped as he secured his hat-trick after Page again broke forward and centred perfectly for Bohane to lash home on the volley.
Having been involved in the build-up to two of the goals, Lewis Page got himself on the scoresheet with an excellent individual effort in the dying minutes.
Fisher added: “Each of the goals came from good movement and their manager has said to me that his youngsters will have learned a lot today.
“In the last two games we’ve scored nine without conceding and although they weren’t at full strength, it was a superb performance.”
