WELWYN Garden City Under-14s produced a superb display to beat Lemsford Pumas 9-0.

An unfortunate own goal a few minutes into the first half by the Pumas opened the scoring for WGC.

The remainder of the first half was closely fought and there was no sign of the goals to come.

After a rousing talk from manager Mark Nott, the Citizens were soon rewarded with a long run from Gregor Mackintosh, who smashed the ball straight into the net.

This was followed shortly after by the ball coming back from the centre spot, finding Ross Evans, who slotted it home for a 3-0 lead.

A short pass into the area from Mikey Hetherington found its way to Mackintosh, who slipped the ball beyond the Lemsford keeper.

The WGC boys continued piling on the pressure and another cutback from Mackintosh saw Harry Butrimus-Gair slam home another goal for WGC.

Hetherington volleyed the ball into the net to give WGC a 6-0 lead.

A cross from Evans was picked up by Mackintosh for Butrimus-Gair to smash into the net for seven.

Evans instigated goal number eight with a long run and pass to Mackintosh, who skilfully passed back over for Evans to tap in.

Ryan Mullholland added the ninth and final goal.

Man-of-the-match was awarded to Mikey Hetherington.

Defenders Callum, Dan Valentine, Sammy Hale and Brandon Montinegro, along with fantastic goalkeeping from Jaidan Doocey ensured a clean sheet.
