ROLLER HOCKEY: King’s Lynn made light work of their trip to Yorkshire as they took apart Halifax 11-4 in their latest England Premier League match.
Lynn dominated the early exchanges and quickly got into their groove and Jack Tucker scored with a neat wrap around.
The goals were soon flowing freely as Josh Taylor took centre-stage, scoring five times in as many minutes to put Lynn 6-0 up.
Halifax grabbed a goal of their own after a blip in the away defence and the game began to turn scrappy.
Tucker turned the tide with his second and Sam Kay followed up to make it 8-1 at half-time.
Halifax had the upper hand for the majority of the opening 10 minutes of the second half, pulling back two goals in quick succession.
This rattled the away side, who knew they needed to regain their composure.
After a good spell of possession, it wasn’t long before Halifax were picking the ball from their net again.
A well rehearsed move led to Jamie Griffin opening his account for the season as Lynn settled again.
Michael Carter brought up double figures with some individual play and, despite Halifax pulling another back, they soon clocked up enough team fouls to give Lynn an opportunity from a direct free hit. Josh Gay stepped up and finished well to complete victory.
Lynn are in action again tomorrow when they welcome Soham to Lynnsport, 7pm.
Entry is free.
