JORDAN McLoughlin and Dean Hailwood hit hat-tricks as Turton atoned for the previous week’s frustrating draw at home to Ambleside United with an 8-2 triumph in the reverse Division One fixture.
McLoughlin volleyed Turton in front on five minutes after a bright opening to an even first half. The hosts levelled before Turton regained the advantage before the break, McLoughlin netting his second.
Ambleside equalised early in the second half before a devastating 30-minute spell brought a six-goal blitz.
An own goal from Dean Hailwood’s cross was followed by a header from Hailwood himself before McLoughlin completed his treble with a cool finish.
Hailwood notched his hat-trick with a dink over the keeper and a penalty into the top corner. Ste Fitton completed the rout with a shot into the top corner.
Eagley remain third in the Premier Division after an impressive 5-1 win away at Coppull United.
The home side dominated the opening 15 minutes but Liam Carr put Eagley ahead, and as they continued to dominate Matty Carr doubled the lead before the break.
Eagley began the second half in similar fashion with Ryan Moore putting them 3-0 up.
Coppull pulled a goal back before Liam Carr struck again. Jordan Cover added a fifth to underline Eagley’s superiority.
Satisfied manager Paul Marriott said: “We played well and worked hard for each other in what was very difficult conditions. We are looking very good at the moment.”
Life does not get any easier for Stoneclough as the Division One strugglers fell to another heavy defeat, losing 7-0 away at Furness Rovers.
