It’s not often you score 14 goals in a game, without reply.
But that was the achievement of Jarrow at the weekend as they romped to a sensational victory over dispirited Murton.
It continues Murton’s poor start to the campaign. They lost the first eight league games, conceding 34 goals, before crashing out of the Sunderland Shipowners’ Cup on Saturday.
It was a stroll in the park from the first minute to the last for the South Tynesiders who simply coasted to a 14-0 win.
Liam Clark rifled four goals, there was a hat-trick for John Murray, with Brodie Simpson (2), Chris Allen (2), Darren Morton, Peter Kane and Paul Burrell also on target.
If Jarrow were on the right end of a hammering, it was the opposite for Boldon CA.
Paul Mossa’s men were hit 7-0 by champions Stockton Town, who are third, six points behind West End with a game in hand.
Chris Stockton (2), Max Craggs (2), Chris Dunwell, Stephen Roberts and Kallum Hannah all beat goalkeeper James Lone.
It wasn’t a good day for Hartlepool’s Lee Jones – but an even worse one for Harton and Westoe boss Simon Johnson as he saw his side throw victory away when well set to take home all three points.
After Adam Smith had given Harton an early advantage, Jones had a penalty saved and two minutes later he was sent off.
Harton doubled the lead through Kyle Hushby but 10-man Pools hit back in the second half to win 4-2 thanks to Luke Day (2), Alex Marshall and Jake Larkin.
Harton are fifth in the Weraside League table, with Boldon down in 13th after a mixed start to the campaign.
