STRIKER Dave Hewing grabbed himself a hat-trick on Saturday as Hatfield Town battered Bedmond Sports & Social Club 6-0.
His forward partner Daniel Staples got a brace and a wonderful overhead kick by Lewis Field ensured all three Herts Senior County League Premier Division points went to Town.
Trevor Lloyd and Andy ?Prutton's side had not played for three weeks and the rest must have done them good as they flew out of the blocks.
The team seemed really up for a game after which the win put them into second spot and challenging for the title.
From Sam Lacey in goal up to Hewing and Staples up front Hatfield showed their class and conviction.
A three-goal burst before the 20 minute mark saw the game put to bed.
Staples opened the scoring on 10 minutes and this was followed up on 14 by an opportunist overhead kick from Field.
Not to be outdone, Hewing got the first of his treble when he slotted home on 17 minutes.
The young Bedmond side kept trying, but the visiting defence was firm and composed with skipper Gary Coley leading by example.
The strike force was helped by brilliant performance by David Reade on the wide right and Field on the left of midfield.
On 35 minutes the ever-alert Hewing added to the score to make it 4-0 at the interval.
After the break it was much the same, except Hatfield played even better controlled football.
It was no surprise when Staples scored his second of the match on 47 minutes after good work by Reade.
Bedmond to be fair kept at it, and it was a credit to the Hatfield midfield and defence that the visitors maintained their shape and conviction.
Wes Awad and Scott Lacey showed their experience and skill at the back, with Coley continuing to impress.
Neil Doctor and Trevor Golder worked tirelessly in midfield and the two wide men, Reade and Field, were outstanding.
Golder and Richard Cooke were replaced on 53 minutes by Martin Standen and Lewis Owen.
This change enabled the managers to look at some options.
Straight away substitutes Standen and Owen began to impress in midfield.
For the same reason Awad was replaced by Barry Chamberlain on 69 minutes and he fitted in straight away.
In fact it was his cross on 71 minutes that gave Hewing the opportunity to complete a great hat-trick.
Hatfield should have added to the score and played some great passing football until the end.
Midfielder David Reade was named the Mortgage Centre man of the match.
The three points from this game puts Town in second place, just five behind league leaders Metropolitan Police Bushey, who they still have to play twice.
Hatfield's next home game will be against third-placed Buntingford on Saturday.
It will be played at the Welwyn Garden City FC's ground in Herns Way, kick-off 3pm.
