Two worldy goals from BPA Dragons’ Kieron Heptinstall helped them to victory over Sandy Lane in Craven League Under-11 D.
In the first meeting between the two sides, Heptinstall picked up a Sandy Lane clearance and let go with a thunderous strike into the top of the goal to put the home side ahead.
A second arrived minutes later, with Alfie Conroy squaring for Heptinstall to convert at the back post from a tight angle.
A few minutes into the second half, midfielder Levi Nunney fed Heptinstall, who struck a second long-distance lightning bolt to complete his first-ever hat-trick.
Dominik Dygasewicz added a fourth goal for Dragons, who preserved their clean sheet thanks to strong defending from Ethan Scott, Leo Foltier and Dygasewicz, with Joe Tattersall making a series of great saves between the sticks.
