Colne Turn On the Style with Eight Goals

By

Colne saw off the challenge of Market Drayton Town with an eight goal attacking display at the Sovereign Play Stadium on Saturday.

The Reds outplayed their opponents throughout the game and were in no way flattered by the final score as they created a plethora of chances.

Colne threatened right from the kick off with some slick attacking moves prompted by Alex Curran’s runs in midfield and deservedly took the lead after 12 minutes when Josh Hine’s low cross gave Oliver Wood the chance to fire home into the bottom corner of goal.

Three minutes later, the Reds went further ahead when Brad Lynch cut in from the left wing and found the net with a powerful right foot shot past the keeper. Colne kept up the pressure and came close after 22 minutes when Richie Baker released Hine with a great through ball but having rounded the keeper, Hine saw his goal bound shot cleared off the line by a defender.

Four minutes later, the visitors’ goal was again under pressure and after Curran’s shot was blocked in the goalmouth, Wood fired home to give the Reds a three goal lead. After 31 minutes, Marcus Poscha caught the visitors defence napping with a long throw up the left wing releasing Lynch on a run to the bye line and his high cross to the far post was headed home by Hine for Colne’s fourth goal.

Poscha created further chances with forward runs and Curran and Wood both had shots just off target as the Reds continued to attack. After 38 minutes, Colne’s pressure again paid dividends when the visitors struggled to clear Curran’s cross from their crowded goalmouth and Lynch hooked the ball home from close range to extend the Reds lead to 5-0.

The second half began in similar style and Hine again saw his goal bound shot cleared off the line by a defender after beating the keeper. Wood shot wide on the turn from a scoring chance and Brad Knox saw his firmly struck shot cleared off the line by a desperate visitors defence.

After 55 minutes, Colne stretched their lead to six goals when Curran’s through ball found Hine and he found the bottom corner of the net with a well placed 25 yard shot. But three minutes later, Market Drayton reduced the arrears when Ryan McLean sent a long range shot into the top corner of the Colne net that left debutant keeper Joao Mendes helpless.

The visitors were lifted by the goal and created a flurry of attacks with Myles Arnold shooting over the bar from close range and Charles Knowles forcing a good save from Mendes.

But the Reds were still hungry for goals and after 70 minutes, Tyrell McKenzie’s run into the area and cross to the far post was turned in by Hine to complete his hat trick and give Colne a 7-1 lead. The Reds were still not finished and after 77 minutes, Lynch’s run set up Curran for a shot that stung the keeper’s hands on its way into the net to round off an eight goal romp for Steve Cunningham’s side.

Although the strength of the opposition may be in question, this was an outstanding display by the Reds who now face some stiff challenges in the upcoming league games as they have their sights on the play-offs at the end of the season.
