JM Sports Res 1 Steeple Morden 5

THE in-form Holt brothers inspired another fine Steeple Morden performance as their five goals demolished JM Sports.

Ben Holt opened the scoring after 15 minutes after some clever play from the impressive Jim Edey, before the hosts equalised with a well-worked finish.

It was a setback that prompted Steeple to push forward once more, and after a spell of possession Dom Holt played his brother through for his second of the match.

Ben Holt then returned the favour after some good work from Martin Donald, whipping in a great cross for Dom Holt to power home a close-range header for number three.

Dom Holt then made it four on the stroke of half- time when his well-taken corner curled into the JM net.

In the second half, the hosts tried hard to get back in the game, but any attempt on goal was thwarted by Steeple's defence of Bown, Hutley, and Smith.

At the other end the visitors kept on creating their own chances, and when Donald's header was well saved, Ben Holt completed his second hat-trick in two weeks with a clinical 12-yard strike.

Steeple impressed once again, and Saturday's victory moved them into the top five of the BIS League Division 3A.
