Market Rasen under 16s were at home to Horncastle on Sunday - recording their first win of the season with a 6-3 success.

Market Rasen were at their opponents from the off and scored after just 19 seconds.

As they then took hold of the game, scoring four more goals before half time, to go in at the break 5-1 up.

Horncastle were to come out in the second half fighting and clawed a goal back after just a few minutes, but Rasen weathered the storm and had many chances to score more goals.

They did get their sixth midway through the second half to finish the game 6-3 winners.

Eric Blair scored a hat-trick and Dan Bailey netted a brace.

Joey Lissaman was also on target.

James Kirk played his first game of the season in goal and earned a well-deserved man of the match accolade.
