IT WAS high fives all round as Middlewich Town recorded an impressive victory on their travels on Saturday.
Rob Hopley got the ball rolling halfway through the first half when he beat a couple of defenders, played a one-two with Dave Dale and knocked the ball past the keeper.
It was 2-0 - and game over in manager Terry Murphy's eyes - just 15 minutes later when Dale was chopped down when clean through on goal. Lee Murphy converted the spot kick and the home side were lucky to keep 11 men on the field.
Hopley made it three shortly after the break. Will Killey stormed down the right wing and crossed for Hopley to sidefoot home.
Dale completed the scoring with two further goals, the first came from another good Killey right-wing cross which Dale headed home before he got on the end of a Murphy throughball, rounded the keeper and slotted home against a demoralised Bollington.
Murphy enthused: 'We are a big, strong side and steamrollered them.
'I was delighted with the way we played - the pitch at Bollington isn't particularly good and I think even Liverpool would struggle to pass it well there. It was a really good all-round team performance.'
The win keeps the pressure on title favourites Barnton, who were in action in the FA National System Cup on Saturday.
