Matlock Town Hawks U14s 15
Chesterfield Town U14s 0
The Hawks continued an unbeaten start to the season with a goalscoring bonanza.
The lineup that started saw Matt Harwood in goal, a backline of Oliver Swale, Sam Hewitt, Oliver Brockelhurst and Kieran Clark, a midfield of Levi Maslauskas-Nicholson, James Reynolds, Jacob Poole, Mike Kimpton and William Rayson all supporting Morgan Miles upfront.
The Hawks were straight in from the start and the pace of Miles upfront soon showed as he ran onto his own through ball to get the scoring off to a good start.
A ball laid down the line by Swale and crossed by Maslauskas saw Miles grab his second before Poole ghosted in for a third.
The ball was moving well from the backline and Hewitt controlled a long ball, laying it off to Reynolds, who set up Kimpton to make it 4-0 before Miles claimed a hat-trick with a back heel from a corner.
The backline then chipped in as Clark, up for a corner, volleyed the ball home, and the half was continued in the same vein as Miles added another to his ever-growing tally and Maslauskas-Nicholson claimed a fantastic goal with a volley from outside the area, before Miles claimed his fifth to end the half at 9-0 to the Hawks.
The restart saw Charlie Horridge, Aedan Frazer and Connor Peacock join the match and more of the same followed as Peacock raced on to a pass from Horridge to open the second half scoring before Poole claimed his second, swiftly followed by back-to-back goals as Kimpton completed his hat-trick.
Swale and Rayson combined to set up Poole to claim his hat-trick.
Harwood, a virtual spectator for the majority of the match, was then quick off his line to clear the ball upfield as a Chesterfield clearance then fell to Clark on the edge of the centre circle, who calmly claimed a second with a volley dipping in under the bar to round the game off in style at 15-0 to a Hawks team enjoying the early season.
Man of the Match was again impossible to pick, such was the team performance where everyone played their part, including Miles with five goals, Kimpton and Poole with hat-tricks and a back line ensuring a clean sheet.
