Courts win Waterside derby


LINCOLN COURTS maintained their impressive Premier Division form with two victories last week.

The Waterside men, who suffered Matt Morrison Junior Cup semi-final heartache losing 2-1 to Greysteel last Monday afternoon, bounced back with a 2-0 victory over Drummond United on Thursday night.

A Kolyn Patterson wonder strike in the early stages of the second half gave Courts the lead over United, with Mark Hamilton adding a second when he rounded the keeper to seal the points.

They followed up Thursday evening’s success with another hard fought but deserved win at old Waterside rivals BBOB.

Courts broke the deadlock after just five minutes when a delightful Dean Cooke free-kick found Patterson and the skipper made no mistake heading home.

They doubled their advantage on 12 minutes when another Cooke free-kick this time picked out Billy Hutchman at the back post and he made no mistake heading powerfully past the home side’s keeper, for his first goal of the season.

The two goal lead was always going to be enough as Don Olphert’s side offered little in the way of threatening Courts’ back line, however the one opportunity they did create saw striker Alan King break clear but his goalbound effort was well kept out by keeper Ian Killen.

Courts’ Stephen Mooney and Patterson both had good chances, but they failed to trouble the BB keeper: fortunately for the duo the points were safe.
