Convincing defeat for Colliers
Stockton 4Ashington 0In the end, Stockton’s victory in this Buildbase FA Vase match was convincing – totally convincing, writes Brian Bennett.
Ashington had arguably put together their best 45 minutes of the season in the first half – but all of their hard endeavours were undone at the start of the second period as a whirlwind spell saw the Teesiders cruise into a three goals lead by the hour mark.
Just 58 seconds into the half Kevin Hayes fired Stockton in front. Jordan Robinson made it two after 53 minutes and five minutes after that Jamie Owens added a third.
The hosts had another effort ruled out for offside but seconds later, Hayes grabbed his second and Stockton’s fourth, rolling the ball home.
