Paxton nets hat-trick
Published at 07:34, Wednesday, 04 September 2013
WHILE Red House Farm doubled up to neutralise the threat of the prolific Jordan Nellis, they were caught unaware by the potency of strike partner John Paxton.
The striker plundered a hat-trick to fire Wallington to a 4-1 success over their rivals who had taken an early lead in the game.
Red House gained the upper hand on 15 minutes through Paul Newton-Eddy.
Wallington found the leveller when Paxton latched onto Justin Millican’s lofted pass and flashed a thunderous shot past the keeper.
Paxton soon made it two for the season when Kyle Reardon lifted a ball straight into the striker’s path.
In the hunt for his hat-trick, Paxton cut down the left but was denied by the goalkeeper only for the ball to fall to Nellis who swept home his side’s third.
The scoreline prompted a switch in formation at the break for Red House but they could not prevent Paxton from bagging his third.
Reardon found space and, after his left footed attempt was diverted onto the bar by a defender, Paxton lashed home the rebound.
Wallington sit sixth in the Premier Division after five games, losing 2-1 at home to Walker Central.
