Lincoln 3rd vs BRHC 5ths 1-11
Last minute changes to the team again had Blackburn pulling out what hair he has this week but he managed to scrape a side together...and what a side!
Ben Rhydding took Lincoln apart in the first half making amends for last week.
So many goals, so many fantastic, fast linking passes in a quality display that had Lincoln chasing shadows in torrential rain. Wilcock playing with new confidence scored first from a Brook left wing classic training move to widen the goal at the right post 0-1. Richard Dawson made it two after Wright crashed the ball through the middle and Wilstrop occupied the defender allowing Dawson to deflect past the keeper 0-2. On form Roughton scored from a short corner 0-3 and Brook scored at the left post from fast left wing play after superb work from Wright 0-4.
Funnell, like a panther, pounced on loose balls and a player in the D with his 5th team debut had some marvellous kick outs all to Rhydding players under pressure
Zillesen playing his first 5th team game at right midfield worked his way to the top D and sent an unstoppable reverse stick shot past the keeper. 0-5. The sequence after that was blurred due to rain but at half time it was 0-8 after goals from Richard Dawson, Wilcock and Roughton being fed with early balls from Zillesen with Wright and Brook working tirelessly in midfield.
Rhydding slowed down a little after half time which meant Blackburn and Jackson ahd to defend more. Lincoln gained ground and eventually scored a consolation goal from a short corner after good approach play.
Rhydding finished the game off towards the end with a better work rate leading to Wilstrop goal from a penalty flick and a goal disallowed. Dawson had cut the ball back on the line to top D to see Wilcock fire the ball home.
Wilcock scored again to seal victory. Man of the Match David Wilcock
