Fernando Moke hit four goals to help Ossett Town to a thumping 5-2 victory at Padiham on Saturday.

Craig Elliott’s men eased to victory in Lancashire to stretch their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions.

Freescoring Town are also the second highest scorers in Evo-Stik Division 1 North thanks to hitting five goals for the second time this month.

The visitors twice had to come from behind before eventually cruising to victory. Ashley Carter struck inside the first minute to give the hosts the lead before Moke levelled with his first of the afternoon just two minutes later.

A Ben Allen penalty saw Padiham regain the lead after 15 minutes but Steve Jeff got Town on level terms again before the break and the second half belonged to the visitors.

Moke completed his hat-trick with two goals inside as many minutes before the hour mark and added his fourth two minutes from time to add gloss to the scoreline.

There were also goals galore at Wakefield FC but they all came from a rampant Warrington Town side as the Bears suffered a heavy 7-0 defeat at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

Ben Wharton scored a hat-trick for the visitors while further goals came from Scott Metcalfe, Philip Davies, Jon Newby and Phillip Mooney as Paul Lines and his men suffered a day to forget.

Ossett Albion are still searching for their first home points of the season after going down 2-1 against Clitheroe.

Simon Nangle struck twice inside seven first-half minutes to give the Lancashire outfit the lead but Adam Muller pulled a goal back for the hosts five minutes before the break.

Albion could not get on level terms, however, and slumped to a fourth home loss from as many matches at Dimple Wells so far this term.
