Whitchurch Mens 1s travelled away to play Deeside 7s in their second game of the season. Whitchurch looked strong throughout the game and pressured Deeside from start to end.

From the start of the game Whitchurch worked through the Deeside defense with pace and skill and within minutes Ryan Dulson scored the opener and later went on to score two more and complete his hattrick. Deeside had moments of passing and good play through sections of the game but rarely got chances at the Whitchurch goal due to the work of the defense and midfield.

Joe Nicholson and Ben Lea both claimed themselves hattricks with a combination of goals. Joel Leese, Ben Kimberley and Steve Lloyd also scored one goal each as they pressed heavily in the second half and saw the game out as another double figure win.

Whitchurch 1s play Llandudno 2s and Wrexham 3s at home next Saturday and Sunday.
