Hood go second with thumping win over Rams

Robin Hood 4Robin Hood took possession of second place in the Corona League with a convincing win over North Village.

North Village 1

Johnny Neacsu got Hood off to a flying start with a goal inside the opening five minutes, before Kevin Bailey turned a strong cross into his own goal to put Hood two up.

A well worked move by Jahsha Scott brought Hood's third when he crossed to Ray Butterfield who controlled the ball with a good first touch and drove home.

Village pulled one back shortly before half time when James Roach converted from the penalty spot to send the teams in at 3-1.

Village brought on several substitutes in the second half but were unable to successfully penetrate the Hood defence which was being superbly marshalled by Jamie Ball, with several fine saves being made by Hood's goalkeeper Mathew Fullarton.

With ten minutes remaining Hood wrapped up their scoring when a Billy Powell corner was headed home by Fabio DiViola to make the points safe.
