Colls nil Nelson
11:53am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in Sport
Nelson 0 Atherton Collieries 3
COLLS visited Nelson hoping to complete their first North West Counties Football League Division One double of the season.
It took less than two minutes to take the lead.
A Gareth Peet free kick on the edge of the area left the Nelson defence static as the ball sailed straight into the net.
The lead was doubled with a superb effort from Peet.
Five minutes later and Peet turned provider for Paul Atherton to head home and effectively end the game.
Jonah O’Reilly hit the post with a shot on the hour mark and Peet missed his hat-trick chance by shooting over the bar nine minutes from time.
On Saturday Colls host Northwich Villa, kick off 3pm.
