Great Yarmouth 6, Halstead 0

Great Yarmouth manager Paul Tong described his team's performance as "awesome" as the Bloaters utterly destroyed Halstead with three goals in each half.

Man-of-the-match Scott Woodcock scored in the 20th and 35th minutes and almost made it a hat-trick but Halstead 'keeper Walker parried his 42nd minute effort, only to see Stewart Roach pounce on the loose ball to make the half time score 3-0.

Any ideas of a Halstead comeback in the second half were immediately forgotten when Liam Bartley scored a fourth from a Woodcock pass just 20 seconds after the restart, and when Roach made it 5-0 six minutes later it was the scale of the victory that was the main talking point.

However, Halstead fought back but they found Michael Hilton in top form in the home goal, and then Yarmouth substitute Joe Bell made it six with a wonderful left-footed free-kick from 25 yards.

"We have been creating chances without really finishing teams off for weeks now," said Tong, "but it just all went right for us today."
