North Ferriby United  6  Hessle Rangers 0

Scorers: North Ferriby: Ryan Kendall 8; Matt Lucid (og) 11; Oliver Banks 12, 77, 84; Chris Bolder 83

Three goals in the first 12 minutes ensured that there would be no repeat of last season's shock win by Hessle.

The win was as emphatic as the score suggests as Ferriby dominated the game from start to finish. Ferriby keeper Adam Nicklin did not have one shot to save as the players in front of him controlled the game and allowed little scope for Hessle to attack.

Ferriby took the lead after eight minutes when Mark Gray's long ball found Ryan Kendall who ran on and fired past Hessle keeper Ben Broadmead.

Three minutes later Russell Fry's cross was turned in to his own goal by Matt Lucid at the near post.

Ferriby virtually killed-off the game in the 12th minute when Oliver Banks scored from close range after Liam King's shot rebounded off the post.

The rest of the half was virtually one way traffic as Ferriby mounted attack after attack. Ferriby had numerous shots blocked as Hessle defended determinedly.

However, the closest The Villagers came to a fourth goal was when Broadmead's misdirected punch saw the ball cleared off the line by a defender.

The second-half was largely a repeat of the first. This time the goals came at the end as ferriby's superior fitness took its toll of Hessle.

Banks and Ryan Williams continually caused trouble down the wings as Ferriby played the ball around to create space.

Again, a lot of shots were blocked. Chris Bolder saw a header hit the post and Broadmead saved well from both Williams and Kendall.

The fourth goal finally came after 77 minutes. Banks rose in the six yard box to head home Russell Fry's right-wing corner.

Ferriby closed the game with two goals in a minute. A good move between Nathan peat, Williams and Banks ended with Bolder scoring with a close rang header.

Banks completed his hat-trick in the 84th minute when he fired home a low drive from 25 yards.

Manager Billy Heath was delighted with the performance, "It was a very good performance. We played good and sensible football and controlled the game superbly."
