Players from Lynn Roller Hockey Club’s Premier League team are in seventh heaven as they started 2018 in winning fashion against Soham.
Lynn secured a convincing 7-2 victory to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign.
The game started brightly for the hosts in front of a good crowd and they were rewarded for their early domination with a goal from Michael Carter, who netted in the top corner with a fierce shot.
Soham almost pegged Lynn back, but goalkeeper Tom Allander kept them at bay with some fine stops.
Carter found the net with a deflected shot from distance before Matt Baker grabbed his first of the game with a neat finish.
Baker added a second goal from close range and there was still time for Carter to complete his treble with a blistering effort to give Lynn a 5-0 interval lead.
Despite gifting Soham two goals with some slack defending, Lynn still managed to add two more goals of their own to remain in control.
The first came from a delightful training ground move which saw a quickfire three-man breakaway converted by Josh Taylor.
Baker then held off countless tackles by the visiting defence to clinch his hat-trick and a 7-2 win.
Thanks to sponsors Samueljacks T-Shirt shop and Carter Engineering Supplies for their continued support, along with everyone who supported the team from the sidelines.
Next up for the team is a Premier League away outing to HBU tomorrow.
Squad: Tom Allander (goalkeeper), Josh Roberts (goalkeeper), Matt Baker, Ryan Barnes, Michael Carter, Jamie Griffin, Sergio Hutson, Josh Horn, Josh Taylor (captain) and Jack Tucker.
