It took the Lambs just five minutes to open the scoring when a fine move saw Tyler Elliot provide the perfect cross from the right, for Josh Grant to head home from eight yards.
The Lambs continued to dominate possession and came close to adding to their score on several occasions. Visiting keeper Tickle denied Luke Brown with a fine save, he then denied Warren Daw tipping the ball away for a corner kick.
A few more chances went bagging but thanks to some fine goal keeping, and defenders blocking shots that were on target. Although completely dominating they failed to their single goal score line by half time.
The second half saw the Lambs continue to dominate the game. They were a little fortunate with the second goal of the evening when a corner kick from Dave Hallett deflected in of the head of Jones into the net.
In the 54th minute Jack Crago made a fine goal down the left, he cut inside, and squared the ball to Dan Sullivan to fire home. Sullivan then became provider his sublime pass found Jack Crago, who moved it on for Josh Robins to fire home.
On the hour Manager Henderson made a substitution with Jack Tribble replacing Dave Hallett.
Tyler Elliot then made a fine run down the right, his shot come cross nestled in the far top corner of the net. It was not long before the Lambs added to their score line when another great move saw Jack Crago fire home.
Jake Miller then provided the pass for Jack Crago to complete his hat trick. Things got worse for the visitors when Crago was brought down in the penalty area, Jack Tribble made no mistake and flashed the ball past Tickle into the net. Josh Grant then got his second of the evening with a fine finish.
A free kick from Dan Sullivan was then fired home by Warren Daw. A Dan Sullivan corner kick was then headed home by Warren Daw.
To be fair to Witheridge who battled really hard for the whole ninety minute and never gave up, but were outclassed by a Lambs team that were at their best especially in the second half.
Very good team performance especially in the second half. The Lambs played some really great pass and move football and is a credit to the quality players that represent the club.
