BOLTON Hockey Club men's first team romped to a 10-0 victory over Fylde's second XI.

On a sopping wet afternoon Bolton's sports team of the year award winners rained goals from the start.

Only 30 seconds were on the clock when Rob Lord latched on to a pass back and slotted the past the keeper.

Sam Dorsey made it two soon after when he crashed the ball in from a short corner.

Damien Pearce deflected in the third and James Robinson popped up with two more to make it 5-0 at half time.

Rob Lord took his tally to three when he showed eye-catching individual skill to score two quick goals, and it was 8-0 through Pearce's second of the game.

When Fylde did finally get a chance they were denied by a magnificent diving-stick reaction save from Matty Gaskell.

A Carl Philbin overhead pass found George Brennan who smashed the ball past the keeper for the ninth goal, and the scoring was complete with a minute to go when Scott Mather scored following a winding run through midfield.

Goals were far less abundance in Bolton men's second team game as they lost 1-0 to Didsbury Northern.

Predominantly a midfield battle, both keepers had little to do and it was ultimately an awkward bouncing, bobbling ball that wrong-footed everyone and decided the game.

The men's third team lost 4-1 at home to Wigton first team after much work before the game to make the pitch playable following torrential rain.

After Wigton went ahead James Bearish equalised with a well-struck shot.

After a 20-minute battle for supremacy it was Wigton who drew next blood and they made the game safe late on with two quick goals against a tiring defence.

Bolton ladies' third team got the better of local rivals Horwich seconds with a narrow 5-4 victory.

Bolton went ahead following some good link-up play between Jess Flegg and Viv Lake.

Horwich hit back strongly with a goal before half time and two more after it to take a 4-1 lead.

But Bolton were not finished and rallied valiantly.

From a short corner Lucy Pickles slipped the ball to Lucy Griffiths whose saved shot was converted by Izzy Currie.

Last-ditch tackles by Emily Hyland and Autumn Coomber kept Bolton in the match before two quick goals from Fiona Clarke and Lake made it 4-4.

The outcome was in the balance with both teams having chances to win it before Griffiths found Clarke whose driven pass into the circle was turned in by Pickles for the winner.

The ladies' second team went down 2-1 in a local derby against Bury.

Bury went 2-0 up in the first half but the deficit was halved when Jess Flegg crossed for Fi Clarke to score.
