Toolstation Western League Premier Division: Hallen 5 Winterbourne United 2

First published in Thornbury Sport

SIX goals in a crazy 15-minute spell lit up an entertaining derby as Hallen beat Winterbourne.

Former Hallen striker Aaron Wilson went close for the visitors on 15 minutes but he dragged his shot wide as he bore down on goal.

At the other end Aysa Corrick had a shot well saved by Chris Watts.

Hallen took the lead when Winterbourne failed to clear a corner and Simon Knight stretched to score from 15 yards.

The game came alive after the break as Winterbourne equalised within five minutes through Sam Vile and Aaron Wilson put them in front with a measured strike four minutes later.

Hallen responded immediately as James Derosa scored a spectacular goal from 25 yards and they went ahead just before the hour mark when Ben Willshire’s corner reached Knight, who tapped in for his second goal of the game.

The goals continued to flow as Ricky Boulton headed in Hallen’s fourth two minutes later.

The scoring was completed in the 65th minute when Knight was pulled back in the box and although Andy Cook’s penalty was well saved by Watts, he followed up to find the net from the rebound.

Hallen’s Josh Digby was sent off for a second booking with two minutes remaining.

  • Hallen followed up their derby win with a 2-1 triumph at Melksham Town on Monday night.
  • Midfielder Jack Dempsey has left Winterbourne to return to league leaders Brislington.
  • Almondsbury UWE won 4-1 at Westbury in the First Division on Saturday.
