Dozen delights for Keighley Athletic

Keighley Athletic 12
Otley 691 1
Keighley Athletic romped to a Wharfedale Triangle Sunday League victory today.
Paul Goodwin led the way with five goals and there was two apiece for Mick Goodwin and Jon-Paul Craig. Jon Smith, Adam Burns and Steve Kernan completed the round dozen.
Poor old Otley left the Marley mud wondering what had hit them after Athletic racked up their biggest win for many a year.
Amazingly, the visitors were leading after half an hour with Athletic guilty of some laughable finishing in windy conditions. It took a fine strike from Burns to calm the nerves before Paul Goodwin found his aim and banged in three more before half time.
Athletic had chosen to rest some of their best players and when they came off the bench for the second half the floodgates really opened.
Smith cracked in a beauty, Mick Goodwin then hit two, the first a special individual effort, brother Paul added two more, Kernan tapped home another and Craig, with a brace of sweet drives, completed the scoring.
