Heathens shatter Stoke with biggest win
11:37am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
HEATHENS stormed to their biggest win of the season as they crushed Stoke 66-28 at Monmore Green.
A powerful performance from the determined Heathens ensured they maintained their perfect National League record in emphatic style and stayed top of the table.
And team boss Will Pottinger was in a jubilant mood after a sensational all-round team display.
Pottinger said: “I can’t fault anyone’s performances - all the lads pulled together to cover Ash (Morris) and it was an excellent night.
“Lewis Blackbird and Paul Starke were superb, Max (Clegg) came back like he had never been away and it was great to see Dan (Greenwood) back on form as well.
“We’re delighted with the convincing win and another three points on the board to move further ahead at the top of the table.”
New number one Blackbird flew to an effortless 18-point maximum to lead the former Cradley club, while Starke only dropped just one point with a classy showing.
Reserve Clegg returned to the side in style to notch a magnificent 12+2 to bolster the lower order.
Greenwood and Gareth Isherwood both enjoyed confidence-boosting showings in the middle order.
Nathan Greaves also put in a promising display at reserve to complete a superb all-around performance.
