High-scoring Stevenage lived up to their pre-match billing as they won 7-2 at Welwyn Garden City.

The visitors had hit 35 in six games before their trip south and they were in rampant form from the off.

Welwyn started the game with a number of second team players in their ranks as half-term and injuries bit hard.

It also meant central defender James Lutario had to go in goal although he did manfully against a Stevenage side who created numerous chances and attacked with verve and vigour.

The first goal was followed by a further three in quick succession but the second-half saw play a lot more even.

Stevenage still managed another three but two quick Bryn Evans goals kept WGC interested.

But it still led to a second straight defeat and the much-stretched WGC squad will be looking forward to a change of fortune when they welcome West Herts on Saturday.
