Cowes Sports continued their fine form with a 4-1 demolition of Blackfield and Langley in the Wessex Premier Division this evening (Tuesday).

The Yachtsmen went into tonight's tie in high spirits, having won three from their last three.

They sat midtable in 10th, while their opponents were third from bottom, in 18th.

Despite being away from home, it was the Island side who started the brightest.

With just 15 minutes on the clock, the first chance of the game fell to Finley Phillips, who could only manage to hit his shot straight at the keeper.

A quick counter attack saw Blackfield nearly take the lead on the 20 minute mark, forcing Yachtsmen stopper Ed Hatt into a very good save.

Just seven minutes later, the host were punished. Connor Kelly burying his shot to the keeper's left.

After the break, a number of chances went begging for the away side and they were made to pay five minutes later.

A 30 year 'wonder strike' drew the tie level.

But it didn't last long. A superb pass from George Colson found Kelly at the back post and he added his and his team's second of the game.

With just over 65 minutes played, Kelly met a lovely cross from McKie at the back post to bag his hat-trick.

Substitute Caleb Neale added his team's fourth of the game and with four minutes to full-time, Hatt pulled off a wonder save to keep it 4-1.

Final score: Blackfield and Langley 1-4 Cowes Sports.
