THROSTON Tornados had to overcome a spirited second-half comeback by Trimdon FC to finally triumph 3-1.
Tornados took the lead after Ben Forsyth had raced on to a defence-splitting pass and slotted home.
Tornados controlled the first half with James Lenehan passing the ball with great aplomb, supported by the ever-dangerous James Horton and man-of-the-match Jake Kelly on the wings.
Throston showed some outstanding football in the first half with some great passing football which was a joy to watch.
Trimdon came at Throston straight from the second half whistle but the defence held firm with full-backs Jamie Boylan and Tom Cummins having an outstanding game intercepting and sweeping up superbly and Kiefer Mathews and Owen Joblin winning everything in the centre of defence.
Ben Forsyth scored a close-range header after a great cross from Lewis Pheasey.
Trimdon rallied, scoring a 20 yard free-kick.
Shortly after Forsyth put paid to their chances with a penalty and secured his second hat-trick in as many games.
This was a great all round performance from the whole team who worked extremely hard for each other.
