Hancock hat-trick helps Weston to victory

A hat-trick from Weston striker Hancock helped his side to a 6-1 victory over West Wilts.

West Wilts 1

Weston 6

Weston took the long trip to Warminster to take on West Wilts looking to show character after last week’s disappointment.

Weston got off to a flying start and took the lead after Scarrott found Hancock in the D, who finished high into the net. The latter missed the chance to double the advantage with a missed penalty.

The second goal however, came shortly after following a solo effort from Scarrott, who beat the keeper at the near post.

The second half continued in much the same way with Weston dominating possession through the midfield of Sully, Etchells, Bryant and Neate. It was soon 3-0 after Sully played in Hancock, who was fouled by the keeper, but dusted himself down to score from the spot.

Hancock wrapped up his hat-trick with the home side’s keeper still in the sin bin after a flowing counter attack.

Weston were hungry for more and Turner got in on the act scoring from a drag flick, before getting his second after good work from Neate.

Weston’s defence of Beer, Hector, Ninnis and Brees looked comfortable throughout. However, the home side scored a consolation goal from the penalty spot past the otherwise faultless Canter after a professional foul from Neate.

Weston captain Brees limped off due to a recurring hamstring injury, but will hopefully make a quick return with three crucial games to play as Weston look for a third successive promotion.

Man of the match went to Dave Beer and DOD went to Hancock.
