AFC Monton 9
HINDSFORD, previously unbeaten in the Manchester League’s Premier Division this season, suffered a surprise defeat at AFC Monton on Saturday.
They slip to second in the standings as a result.
Two goals in the opening three minutes, both from set pieces, gave the home team an unexpected boost.
It soon became apparent that both attacks were to have the better of the respective defences, and within twenty minutes the Tonics had restored parity.
A good goal from the returning Jack Valentine was added to by a penalty converted by Rico Colulo.
Monton duly struck back, leading 4-3 at the break with Joe Yarwood adding to the visitors’ tally.
The hosts plundered a further five goals in the second half, while Hindsford replied with a great goal after a neat exchange of passes down the left ended with Jake Haslam finishing first time with a fine strike from outside of the penalty area.
