Hurst Green 5, Oswaldtwistle St M 0

Hurst Green made it four wins on the trot as they blew away Oswaldtwistle in a mesmerising first half display.

Striker Jamie Enefer helped himself to four goals as last season’s runners up exacted revenge on a side that comprehensively beat Green in arguably their worst display of the season.

The home side took the lead on two minutes as Chris Leighton’s deep free kick was nodded in at the far post.

The visitors never recovered, with the home side hungrier and stronger in the tackle, while left winger Sam Williams who gave the right back a torrid afternoon.

A cross from the left enabled Enefer to bundle in his second, and Green’s third came from a Leighton corner that found Enefer on the penalty spot, and he smashed home to put the game beyond the visitors.

Green’s dominant first half display was rounded off aptly by Williams who was set free on goal by a superb through ball from Danny Walker, Williams finishing superbly.

Oswaldtwistle predictably came out more determined in the second half, but Enefer’s fourth and Green’s fifth came from the right side as Danny Walker’s skewed shot flew back out to substitute Davies, whose shot was spilled but was gobbled up by the striker.

Green face a crunch game against Mill Hill on Saturday, kick-off 2.-15 p.m. at Griffin Park.

Hurst Green Reserves came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Mill Hill, with Simon Lakeland grabbing a brace.
