Northampton ON Chenecks 4 Rushden & Higham United 0
Saturday, 20 March 2010
A Lee Bradley hat trick inspired Chenecks to a fifth successive Division One victory.
Bradley netted after two minutes with a shot through a crowded area and again after fourteen minutes with a far post header to give Chenecks a stranglehold on the game which they never relinquished.
Recent recruit Ashley Bradshaw scored his first Chenecks goal ten minutes into the second period, chipping home from the edge of the box before Bradley completed his hat trick nine minutes from the end.
The foot of the post denied the Lankies a consolation from Tyler Merries' free kick.
Chenecks: Ben Garrett, Leigh Burdett, Steve Allen, Joe Evans, Nathan Cook, Jason Gray, Scott Barczewski (Ciaran White), Jordan Casey, Ashley Bradshaw (Dan Clarke), Lee Bradley, Tom Gee (Jamie Wright).
Rushden: Aaron Doughty, Craig Harrower, Bill Gates, Tyler Merries, Ryan Kalla, Lewis Odell, Stefan Morris (Curtis Long), Josh Davis, Oscar Oku, Bouamma Cisse, Oli Partrick (Danny Webb).
