Sports treble hero Josh.

Byline: KATRINA ASQUITH Football Correspondent @sport@examiner.co.uk

BRIGHOUSE Sports Under 14s scored a 5-1 win at Silkstone with the help of a hat trick from man-of-the-match Josh Harrison.

The result is a great lift for the quarter-finals of the County Cup.

From the start Sports dominated possession and worked the ball well down the right side, with Luca Willan and Jacob Peyton doing well.

A run from Peyton put him into the box and he was brought down by a Silkstone player. Josh Harrison calmly slotted the penalty to give his side the lead.

Again, down the same side, Willan played a pass across the face of the goal for Rhys Wall to slide the ball home.

Josh Heavyside had plenty of the ball and created chances and, eventually, he made it 3-0 before half time.

Unfortunately, in the second half, Sports began to let Silkstone back into the game.

Silkstone were quicker onto the ball and tried to find ways through the Sports' defence, but luckily Chris Hudson was in form and proved a solid blocker.

A penalty was awarded to Silkstone, however, after Ben Kirby made a late challenge. Josh Asquith tried to use his height in goal but the spot-kick was scored.

Sports needed to switch on and not allow Silkstone back into the game.

And they did so when Evan Donovan got onto a loose ball to find Harrison for his second.

With three minutes to go, Harrison completed his hat trick and walked away with the man-of-the-match award.
