IN-FORM Hatfield front-man Jason Caswell was once again the hero on Saturday as his hat-trick saw Town to a 5-3 away victory at Sun Postal Sports.

The Blueboys were once again involved in took part in another goal fest in Division One of the South Midlands Football League.

After losing a 13-goal thriller last weekend at Stony Stratford Town, Trevor Lloyd's men shared eight goals with Sun Postal Sports yesterday.

The Times Territory team took the spoils 5-3 to finish the Spartan South Midlands League Division One season in third place behind Kings Langley and runaway champions Royston.

There were two more goals for Hatfield midfield dynamo Trevor Golder at Watford-based Sun Postal Sports.

Striker Jason Caswell also continued his recent goal-scoring exploits with another hat-trick after scoring four in the Stony Stratford defeat and three against Winslow United in the game before that.

It was a desperate game for Sun, as defeat consigned them to relegation.

Hatfield, on the other hand had already secured third place and only had pride to play for.

Nevertheless both sides served up an entertaining game.

It was a windy day and the ball bobbled around on a hard surface.

Whilst Hatfield had far more possession it was the home side who took the lead on 29 minutes when Spencer Bellotti hit a speculative shot that took a deflection off a defender and into the goal.

Hatfield played some great passing football, but the equaliser just wouldn't come, and it was 1-0 to Sun at the interval.

On hearing that Buckingham were losing against Harpenden, one would have thought that Sun would have upped their game to try and extend their lead.

But it didn't happen.

Hatfield settled down to play great passing football with Trevor Golder and Jason Caswell combining well up-front.

On 50 minutes Caswell was bearing down on goal when he was fouled just as he was going to strike the ball.

This resulted in a penalty which Trevor Golder converted.

Some two minutes later Golder snapped up his second with a superbly-taken sharp strike.

On 66 minutes Caswell scored to make it 3-1 however there were anxious moments when on 89 minutes Nadim Akhtar scored to make it 3-2.

The game was delayed for about nine minutes whilst the Sun keeper was receiving treatment after an accidental clash with Caswell.

Following this there was a 'mini goal-fest', with Caswell scoring on 92 minutes, Bellotti replying on 96 minutes and Caswell getting his hat-trick on 100 minutes.

It was a good end of season performance by the Town and another well-deserved three points.

Jason Caswell was named the Mortgage Centre man-of-the-match. The livewire frontman has now scored an amazing 10 goals in his last three games.
