DESPITE narrowly missing out on promotion from the Midland Premier Division, Khalsa did not let up on their professionalism and thumped Stone 15-1 in their final game of the 2015/16 season.

Steve Davison and David Harris were too much for the Stone defence with both claiming a hat-trick each on Saturday.

The pick of the goals of the six between the two came from Harris who after a sublime run from the half way line into the circle, unleashed a bullet reverse stick strike into the corner of the goal.

Jas Singh claimed one goal with a tidy lob over the keeper and then turned provider for Mandeep Sandhar who made an intelligent lead, drawing the defender out of position then easily rounding the keeper to strike the ball home.

Sandhar added a second to his tally with a carbon copy goal, however this time the strike being from a tighter angle.

Ben Scott added to the onslaught with a brace from short corners with both finding the top corner of the goal and he came agonisingly close to completing his maiden hatrick for the club, however a reflex save denied him.

Gurminder Ghattaura claimed a brace in the game, the pick of his goals coming from a scintillating run from Anit Chudasama down the flanks putting Ghattaura through on goal and a clever finish to wrong foot the keeper.

Scott Angliss was the only defender to claim a goal after drifting up the pitch and following his pass from deep within Khalsa’s half to find himself unmarked for a tap in.

It was left to Stuart Gooderham to finish the scoring off for Khalsa and wrapped up three points five minutes from time after a broken down short corner fell kindly to him allowing him to volley the ball into the goal.
