NFC Kesh 9 Killen Rangers 0

Mark Jones was the four goal hero for Kesh on Saturday as they hammered nine goals past Killen. 
Clint Thompson also netted twice with Mark McCauley, Lee Walker and a first goal for Josh Flack completing the rout as Kesh continued to set the pace at the top of the Division One table.
Confidence is sky high at the club, with this convincing victory coming a week after their win over champions Strathroy. 
Once again manager Nicky Noble was delighted with performance. 
“They really played well. They turned it on from the first whistle,” he said. 
“I thought some of our football was as good as we had produced all year and for a neutral it would have been a good game to watch. I couldn’t complain about anything. They didn’t let Killen out of their own half at times and it was very pleasing to watch. They were hungry for it.”
Kesh went into the game without the influential Nathan Cashel, Grant Ellis, Nigel Beacom and Jordan Flack, but Noble was delighted with how the others stepped up. 
“The fellas that came up from the seconds did brilliantly and it gives me a headache,” he said. 
“When you win 9-0 and then you have four or five boys to come back into that team, what do you do? It’s a good headache to have. We have the squad there, but the main problem is keeping everybody happy. 
“It’s not often you get boys coming up from the reserves and putting in the same level of performance as the boys in the first team. 
“They didn’t look out of place at all and that can only be a good thing for the club when you have players like that. Hopefully they will feature for the rest of the year if they can keep producing that level of performance.”
Kesh were quickly on the attack as they took the game to Mountjoy, with Mark Jones testing the keeper with a shot from the edge of the penalty area after five minutes. 
The first goal arrived after a quarter of an hour when Josh Flack released Jones, who produced a clinical finish. Clint Thompson was the next on the score sheet when he netted following a corner. 
A rare Killen foray forward produced their first opportunity of the match but Trevor Irwin headed Graham Young’s cross over the bar. 
At the other end Ward saved well from Flack, but he could do nothing two minutes before half time when Lee Walker’s corner was headed back across the penalty area by Mark McCauley and Thompson scored from close range. Within a minute Kesh had added a fourth when McCauley headed Walker’s free kick into the bottom corner.
The one way traffic continued after the interval with Jones rounding the keeper but failing to hit the target from a tight angle. Before long it was 5-0 when McCauley burst down the left and crossed for Jones to score. 
After 65 minutes Jones completed yet another hat-trick when he slotted past the keeper after a pass from Flack. 
Thompson had a penalty saved but it did not stop the flow of goals, with Josh Flack netting his first senior goal and Jones scoring his fourth before Lee Walker converted a late penalty to complete a convincing win.
