Vauxhall 5, Worksop Town 2: A RAMPANT Vauxhall lifted themselves off the foot of the table with a rousing victory over Worksop Town at a rain-soaked Rivacre Park on Saturday, writes Gary Porter.
A brace from Peter Cumiskey and strikes by Scott Willis, Tommy Rooney and Leighton McGivern secured a much-needed three points for the Motormen.
Motors boss Owen Brown said: 'We were terrific and thoroughly deserved the win. We played some great stuff throughout the game and created a lot of chances.
'Having three up front gave us a different dimension and we profited from it. We've played every system going due to injuries but, hopefully, now we can get settled and build on this win.'
Vauxhall began in confident mood and had the ball in the net after five minutes only to see Cumiskey's effort ruled out for a foul on visiting keeper Adam Sollitt.
The deadlock was broken 10 minutes later when Cumiskey latched on to Rooney's lay-off before looping a shot over Sollitt with the aid of a deflection.
With a stranglehold on the game, Cumiskey added his and Vauxhall's second on 25 minutes with a half-volley from the edge of the area after reacting quickest to a long ball over the top by Scott Willis.
After a lacklustre first-half display, the visitors gave themselves a lifeline on the hour when Ian Robinson headed home from close in.
Worksop were barely back in the game for more than three minutes when Vauxhall restored their two-goal lead thanks to a cool finish from Willis, who fired home from close range after neat link-up play with Cumiskey.
Two minutes later, Vauxhall notched their fourth when Rooney headed home a pinpoint cross by Mc-Givern, who then went on to add a fifth himself with a wonderful curling 25-yard strike.
Worksop nicked a late consolation through Mark Wilson before Tim Dittmer rounded off a wonderful afternoon for the Motormen when he denied Robinson from the penalty spot deep in stoppage time.
