NINE nil is often thought of as a rarity in football, but just ask the Dynamo lads when they come up against Lode reserves.

Both times this season – home and away – that scoreline has been on the menu, and the Dynamos even manage to share out the helpings when it comes to who gets the goals.

Daniel Rouse scored his first for the club inside the first three minutes and from then on one-way traffic allowed Paul Fothergill, Matthew Comstive (2), Daniel Rowlandson, Dominic Parry, , Milton Mendes, and substitute Darren De-Biasi (2), to also register.

Lode Reserves could not cope with a blistering performance from the home side which completed a league double and repeated the same scoreline achieved back in October last year.

Prior to kick off and a week after a tight win at Dullingham, Dynamos had to make five changes due to unavailability. Andy Sell, Dominic Parry, Daniel Rudd, Daniel Rouse and keeper Keith Hill where all recalled to the starting line up.

They got off to a great start when Rouse turned in a left wing cross to score his first goal for the club.

It took till the 21st minute before the home side struck again – a superb individual goal from right back Fothergill as he went on a run, beating multiple tackles, before striking home from a tight angle.

Comstive grabbed the third with a good finish, before a superbly flighted strike from Rowlandson 20-yards out.

In the second half the hosts carried on playing attacking football with a great first goal for Parry and another for Comstive as they broke the Lodes resistance.

The league’s leading marksman Milton Mendes grabbed number seven to increase his impressive tally of 23 so far this season in just 17 appearances.

The last two goals went to substitute Darren De-Biasi, his first goals for the club, to finish off a miserable day for the visitors who took credit for their endeavour.

Next: Dynamos host Hundon A this Saturday. Kick off 2pm.
