Kings Lynn RHC premier league team played their final game of the year as they played host to Herne Bay United.
In a game full of goals it was the hosts who were under pressure to begin with, as HBU struck the bar early on. However this seemed to kick start Lynn into what proved to be a comfortable win. With fourteen minutes played and Lynn very much on top of the game Jack Tucker, who was later voted man of the match scored the first of his three goals to give Lynn the lead. Owen Norris then added to the score line with his first, shortly followed by Josh Taylor grabbing his only goal of the game thirty seconds later. With Lynn now in full control Jamie Griffin got in on the act with his first goal of the game.
Half Time Score: Kings Lynn 4 – 0 HBU
Next up onto the scoresheet was premier league debutant Ethan Shread. At the tender age of sixteen years old, Shread was given the opportunity to open his account with a penalty where he did not disappoint the watching support, as he hammered home from the spot.
Into the second half and KL were keen to add to their first half performance. Griffin added his second with a powerful drive to the top corner and Tucker added his second with a neat lift dribble.
Tucker then completed his hat-trick to make it 8 for the hosts only for Norris to add the ninth shortly after. Griffin then became the second player to score his hat-trick to bring up the tenth and final goal.
Whilst the goals were flying in one end both Lynn keepers Tom Allander and Will Martin kept clean sheets to maintain Lynn finished the game with an impressive scoreline of 10 – 0.
Full Time Score: Kings Lynn 10 – 0 HBU
