HEREFORD Pegasus Colts defied Storm Dennis to stretch their lead at the summit of the Herefordshire County League Division Two with a 7-0 win over Ewyas Harold Reserves.

Despite the driving rain and windy conditions play went ahead on the new 3G pitch at Old School Lane allowing Peggy to go four points clear at the top.

The combination of Jordan Williams and Harvey Evans proved deadly for the hosts with the former netting four times.

Williams was lively from the outset and in the opening minute steered a shot just wide.

Evans went close on the 10th minute seeing his effort palmed over and from the resulting corner a header through a crowd of bodies rattled the post.

The Colts were eventually ahead a minute later with Williams running onto a long ball before nestling his effort into the bottom corner.

Williams netted again two minutes later after being brought down in the penalty box and getting up to slot home.

On the 19th minute Williams had his hat-trick after starting the move with a silky through ball before his fellow forward was on hand to head home the resulting cross.

Evans then got in on the goal scoring action and made it 4-0 on 28 minutes netting with a strike from outside the box.

The fifth goal came on 38 minutes after Ben Wood’s shot was saved into the path of Evans for his second of the afternoon.

Harold responded before the break and Luke Price’s low effort was only kept out by the leg of goalkeeper Dominykas Simanskas

Despite playing against the windy conditions in the second half Peggy made it six after 49 minutes with Williams firing home.

Evans and Williams were also influential in the seventh goal, but this time pulled it back for substitute Alex Hunt to fire home.
