IW 10, Winchester V 1
IW WERE ruthless on Saturday, notching up double figures against a depleted Winchester side and showing their intent for the rest of the season.
Winchester barely broke out of their defensive zone, such was the dominance of an IW side who produced some slick passing moves and clinical finishing.
James Liddiard was involved in both of the IW’s opening goals, setting up Stephen Woodford to score, before scoring himself after Stuart Allen and Lewis Heaven-Gandy assisted him.
Tom Young built on his growing tally by securing another four goals to win man of the match for the second week running.
A rare lapse in concentration allowed Winchester in for their only goal, but it was a tiny blip in a masterful performance, which was rounded off with a hat-trick for Colin Simmons and one for Heaven-Gandy.
IW: T. Butt, Allen, Stubbings, P. Butt, Butler, Hepburn, Heaven-Gandy, Gould, Woodford, Simmons, Young, Liddiard.
