Elliott Hat-Trick Earns Comfortable Win
Duchy cruised to a 4-0 friendly win against an under-strength O.P.M. A at Lipson College with Man of the Match, Tom Elliott, scoring a hat-trick
Two goals in each half gave Duchy a straightforward victory in a match that the Cornishmen dominated, with Elliott lashing home a penalty corner on twenty minutes before Martyn Head double the advantage by sweeping in a cross from Lee Selby.
The visitors continued to dominate after the interval, with Elliott firing home his second and Duchy's third within ten minutes of the restart before rapidly completing his hat-trick with another powerful penalty corner. OPM had their best spell of the match in the final quarter, however two smart stops from Kevin Welsh gept the clean sheet intact, with Duchy running out as 4-0 winners.
