DUDLEY Sports finally got off the mark this week with a 6-1 beating of bottom side Bartley Green, It was Sports first success in the West Midlands League this season.
At one stage it looked as though Sports would run riot as they raced into a 3-0 lead with just 16 minutes on the clock.
But Bartley Green dug deep and Sports joint-boss Tony Gore claimed: “They could have caved in at that point, but they didn’t and tried to keep going.
In fact, they weren’t that bad, but we played really well and it’s important that we kick on from this result”.
Dominic Strevens led the scoring spree with a hat-trick while Dan Evans, Liam Morris and Alex Welch were also on target.
