FOOTBALL: Prestatyn Town extend lead with double-digit rout at Mold
Monday 14 November 2016 12:27
A SIX goal salvo from Jack Kenny gave Huws Gray Alliance leaders Prestatyn Town a thumping 10-2 win at Mold Alexandra.
Neil Gibson’s side were at their ruthless best throughout the one-sided affair, a result that extends their lead at the summit to six points ahead of Saturday’s clash with Holyhead Hotspur at the Motion Finance Stadium (2.30pm).
The Seasiders began the game in impressive fashion and took the lead on 12 minutes when former Rhyl forward Kenny notched his first of the evening after a period of sustained pressure.
Things got even better soon after when James Stead fired home after 18 minutes, and Town were three-up on 23 when Kenny produced a neat finish to seal his brace.
The home side reduced the deficit when Gary McConnell steered past Carl Jones on 29 minutes, before Kenny continued his devastating form by finishing well for his hat-trick on 39.
An end-to-end first half continued when Sam Richardson took advantage of some slack defending to close the gap in first half stoppage time.
After the break saw the rampant leaders take full control of affairs, with Kenny smashing in his fourth just two minutes after the restart.
The gifted finisher added another on 49 minutes, before rounding off a blistering spell against the hapless home side with a sixth goal for a five minute hat-trick on 52 minutes.
Top scorer Jordan Davies got in on the act a minute later when he calmly slotted past former Town keeper Mike Jones, and further goals from Stead and Ben Maher ensured they reached double-figures in what was another devastating attacking display.
They will look to maintain their good form against the Harbourmen this weekend, who have underachieved so far this season but have been buoyed by the arrivals of Jay Gibbs and Asa Thomas.
