PORTVILLE registered their first clean sheet of the season after a 6-0 win at Hambrook.

The Warriors had the edge in the first 20 minutes with some great passing football and went in front after Sam Jones shot from outside the box to make it 1-0.

The pressure didn’t stop after the goal. A great Ashley Tweedy ball from a free kick into the box met Craig Turners bullet header that hit the crossbar and come down to Martin Cates, who netted his first Portville goal.

After 36 minutes, man of the match Adam Scrase started to come into the game with a great finish from a Van Papantoniou rebound, Scrase made it 3-0 at the break.

The second half saw Portville keep their shape and were difficult to break down. Hambrook tried everything to get back into the game, but could not break Portville’s resistance.

Portville made it 4-0 when Van Papantoniou found Scrase in the box, who finished well from an acute angle. Scrase completed his hat-trick when Latham slipped a well-weighted through ball to make it 5-0.

In the closing stages, Steve Kilroy was brought down in the box by the keeper which left the referee no option but to award a penalty and Jones slotted home to make it 6-0.

Portville’s next home game at the Hand Stadium is on October 11 v AEK Boco (7pm).
