Bridlington Sports Club enjoyed their best result of the season so far by thumping Hornsea Town 6-2 at Dukes Park.

After some good early pressure by the hosts, the breakthrough came when attacking full back James Webb collected the ball from Dan Bemrose on the half way line and drove forward into space before hitting a 25 yard screamer into the top corner.

The lead was extended further when some great play by Jake Brown saw his through ball split the defence and Josh Christlow finished coolly past Ben Leyland.

The home team then imploded for two minutes, conceding two quick goals to Hornsea striker Lewis Reeve - the first after some good movement and a low shot and the secondafter he reounded keeper Lyle Bogle and tap into an empty net.

The home team showed character after and went on to create good chances for Billy Tyler. Christlow and Michael Tate but none could be converted before the break.

The second half started with Sports Club again applying pressure and they took a deserved lead on 55 minutes when man of the match Webb completed his brace with a bullet free kick from 35 yards which was too powerful for the keeper to hold.

The lead was extended again when pressure from an in swinging corner resulted in a goal mouth scramble which Tyler pounced on to finish neatly from 12 yards.

Sports Club introduced new players with Ashley Robinson and Jay Wallace replacing Michael Tate and James Faulkner.

Wallace had an immediate impact when some good play released Tyler down the wing and he was brought down but Webb failed to complete his hat trick by hitting the wall with his free kick.

Robinson added a fifth when his toe poke squeezed past the keeper into the empty net and his second soon followed after a neat chipped pass from Mark Davies allowed Robinson to smash a volley into the roof of the net.

Davies tried to get on the scoresheet himself but his long range efforts failed to hit the target.

The three points allowed Sports Club to jump above Hornsea in the Humber Premier League table. They are now in 12th spot and face AFC Rovers in the league cup this weekend.
