Hull 1

Ben Rhydding 3

HOTSHOT Australian Dan Kelly was on target for Ben Rhydding in both their games at the weekend.

When they travelled to play bottom side Hull in Saturday's Northern Premier League game he was on target twice.

Young Will Musgrave forced a penalty corner and captain Brad King fired the set piece to striker Kelly who deflected the ball into the net.

The home side soon responded through a set piece and levelled before the break.

Ben Rhydding came out after the break and played a far more composed game dominating proceedings through key midfielders King and Neil Sugden. Andrew Parkes also caused problem's for Hull's defence.

A number of opportunities were created and striker Johnnie Schofield notched the next goal with a powerful strike from the top of the circle.

Ben Rhydding secured the all important next goal after a strong run through the midfield. Musgrave crossed for Kelly who had no trouble in finishing.

It was a well deserved win for Ben Rhydding who then had to face Timperley the next day with a chance of securing second place in the league.

Timperley 0

BEN Rhydding extended their unbeaten run to eight games and secured second place in the league - a position they have failed to produce in the previous 13 years.

Timperley must be sick of the sight of Dan Kelly for when the teams last met he netted five times in an 8-0 win. This time he netted four.

The home crowd was entertained with some outstanding attacking hockey in a style that has been developed throughout the season and has made the team a feared opposition.

Will Musgrave scored on his home debut and hard working midfielder Craig Hannath added to the tally. Kelly punished the Timperley defence with four goals, two of which came with his trademark reverse stick shot.

These goals took Kelly's individual tally to 40 goals in 19 games and with one game to go he has a chance of improving the league record which currently stands at 43.

l Ben Rhydding entertain Southport on Saturday with a 1.30pm pushback.
