Five-star Windermere fly high against Preston
Last updated at 16:45, Wednesday, 27 February 2013
WINDERMERE took another step towards the North West Division Three North title with a five-goal thrashing of Preston.
Joint-man-of-the-match Jackson – who along with fellow striker Tom Dolman took the accolades in the triumph – opened the scoring with a tap-in after the hosts had passed the ball around the visiting defence.
Dolman doubled the advantage as he fired a drag-flick from a penalty corner into the bottom of the net and then scored his second before the break, a shot rebounding off the Preston keeper and into his path for an easy finish.
Windermere continued their dominance after the break, with stand-in keeper Josh Quinn barely having a thing to do all afternoon after his promotion from the second team.
Instead, the goals kept coming at the other end of the field, with Dolman completing his hat-trick as he rifled in another drag-flick from a penalty corner to make it 4-0.
Jackson completed the scoring after his team-mates had passed the ball around their opponents and left Preston floundering.
The victory ensured Windermere stayed top of the division, a single point ahead of Lancaster University, but with a game in hand.
Those two sides clash on the Bailrigg campus on Saturday, with Mere playing their game in hand at Mossley Hill a day later.
Captain Scott Santamera knows the importance of those two games if his team are to claim the title and automatic promotion and said: “We’re a point ahead of Lancaster, but with the game in hand we play on Sunday, so this weekend is make or break I suppose for us.
“If we can win on Saturday it would be fantastic and if we can win on Sunday as well, it puts us even more in control – they are two big games”
