Ten of the best for Courts

Foyle Wanderers...3Lincoln Courts...10

WATERSIDE men Lincoln Courts finally got back onto the pitch after having no game for the past few weeks but it was Foyle Wanderers who made the best start.

The visitors were made to pay for some very average defending as the Wanderers striker slid the ball past Ian Killen in the Lincoln goal.

Within minutes the home side doubled their lead as the Lincoln defence was looking shaky. With Foyle Wanderers two goals to the good and less than ten minutes on the clock Lincoln were forced into action and soon got themselves on the scoresheet.

Mark Hamilton was slid in by Stephen Mooney and he calmly went round the keeper. Striaght after that Ian Killen gathered a loose pass and hit a long ball up-field which beat the Wanderers back line and Stephen Mooney managed to get a foot on it and guide it past the keeper.

Shortly after that Mark Hamilton added his second and Lincoln's third and all this was within the opening fifteen minutes.

As the half continued Lincoln continued to exploit some poor Wanderers defending and added further goals through Jason Dougherty, another from Stephen Mooney and two from Billy Hutchman - the second of which was the goal of the game as he picked the ball up thirty yards from goal and ran at two defenders before cooly lobbing the goalkeeper.

The second half didn't contain as much excitement as the first but it didn't take long for Mark Hamilton to seal his hat-trick.

With Lincoln now in control they seemed to take their foot off the gas and Wanderers added their third with a cheeky back heel after LIncoln failed to clear the danger.

Lincoln then added a further two goals before the end of the game; Craig Young headed home from six yards after Stephen Mooney's pinpoint cross and then Jason Hay got a well deserved goal for his performance. He found space inside the area and fired home from a narrow angle to complete the scoring.

Courts now travel to Greysteel on Saturday with both teams having taken maximum points from their opening three games of the season.
