Jack Tucker and Jamie Griffin score three goals each
King’s Lynn Roller Hockey Club Premier League team made it a perfect ten when they played their final game of the year by hosting Herne Bay United.
In a game full of goals it was the hosts who were under pressure to begin with as HBU struck the bar early on; however this seemed to kick start Lynn into what proved to be a comfortable win.
With 14 minutes played and Lynn very much on top of the game, Jack Tucker, who was later voted man of the match, scored the first of his three goals to give Lynn the lead.
Owen Norris then added to the scoreline with his first, shortly followed by Josh Taylor grabbing his only goal of the game 30 seconds later.
With Lynn now in full control, Jamie Griffin got in on the act with his first goal of the game.
Half-time: Lynn were 4-0 up.
Into the second half and Lynn were keen to build on their first half performance.
Griffin added his second with a powerful drive to the top corner and Tucker added his second with a neat lift dribble.
Next up onto the scoresheet was premier league debutant Ethan Shread. At the tender age of 16 years old, Shread was given the opportunity to open his account with a penalty where he did not disappoint the watching support, as he hammered home from the spot.
Tucker then completed his hat-trick to make it eight for the hosts, only for Norris to add the ninth shortly after.
Griffin then became the second player to score his hat-trick to bring up the 10th and final goal.
Whilst the goals were flying in one end both Lynn ‘keepers Tom Allander and Will Martin kept clean sheets as Lynn finished the game with an impressive scoreline of 10-0.
