Alex Campana, Tom Carter and Adam Hallissey all score hat-tricks as Kings Langley batter Harpenden Town 11-1
11:45am Monday 30th September 2013 in Sport
Three players scored hat-tricks for Kings Langley on Saturday in an incredible 11-1 rout over Harpenden Town in Spartan South Midlands League Division One.
Only one place separates the two teams in the table but ten goals was the difference on the day as Alex Campana, Tom Carter and Adam Hallissey all scored three in the victory.
The game had a potential for goals from the first minute with Campana shooting narrowly wide and Ant Ladyman bringing off a superb save, before Kings struck twice in a minute.
A Carter cross was converted by Hallissey on the run before Connor Toomey found the corner of the net, this time Campana turning provider.
Town pulled one back as Tommy Burns hit the bar and Harry Hunt converted the rebound, but Kings responded as Carter headed home a Campana corner.
As half time beckoned, Tony Golder was dismissed for a scything tackle that left Jack Johnson upside down and Kings went for the jugular in the second half.
A textbook move saw Campana play Johnson in with a diagonal ball behind the defence and the cross was forced in by Carter.
Soon after, a poor clearance was seized on by Hallissey to round the keeper and score and Gary Connolly’s through ball enabled him to reprise the move for his hat-trick.
Campana was again involved as this time Connolly provided the cross for Carter to complete an unlikely hat trick for a wing back.
Campana was not to be outdone and guided home a Callum Adebiyi pull back, rifled in a Connolly cross and glided through three challenges to net in the last minute.
Lewis Pritchard capped a good cameo with a goal set up by a neat interchange with Paul Insley and the only blot on the day was the loss of Sam Warrell to a potentially serious injury that saw Kings play the last 12 minutes played with ten players.
Kings move up to seventh in the league having now scored 15 goals in just two games and with a Challenge Trophy clash at home to Buckingham Athletic tomorrow (Tuesday) night.
