Bridlington Snooker Centre 11

AFTER last week’s trouncing of a decent Nafferton side, Snooker Centre came into this game full of confidence and it showed from the off.

One-way traffic was expected from this game and it was exactly how the game panned out.

Andrew Ritchie and Steven Laws bossed the midfield and Jonny Brown and Jody Chapman were in cruise control at the back.

The first goal came from a super corner met by Lee Williamson at the back post with a bullet diving header.

Constant pressure from Snooks was becoming the name of the game and a volley from the evergreen Andrew Ritchie found the bottom left corner from 20 yards out.

Not long after came number three, when a Snooks forward was pulled down in the box. The penalty was coolly converted by Steven Laws on his return to the side.

Five minutes later Laws showed his class again with a delightful chip into the top left corner from 25 yards out to make it 4-0.

Forum heads were down and a wonderful move down the right wing between Ben I’anson and Jack Hudson-Bowe was finished in thunderous style by the young striker, who has now passed 30 goals for the season.

The end of the first half was drawing in, and Scott Cooper was a spectator in the Snooker Centre goal.

At the other end, Danny Gilson was felled for another penalty. He tore the ball away from Laws to prevent the big man getting his hat-trick and slotted it home to the bottom right of the goal.

With the match won, Snooker Centre made a few changes after half time. Laws and Summerscales were rested, and Jonny Brown made way for the experienced Mark Purvis.

It made an instant impact with Hudson-Bowe picking a loose ball out in the box to nod past the helpless Holdsworth.

Snooks were not letting up and kept pouring forward. Williamson latched onto a slick through ball to poke it past the outcoming keeper.

The small college pitch was definitely suiting Snooks’ game, another stunning move down the right was finished with real quality by Ben I’anson, who made it 9-0.

Old head Scott Colclough popped up with a blistering drive from 30 yards out which almost broke the bar before nestling into the goal and the final insult was volleyed home by Williamson after Hudson-Bowe’s pull back
