BROCTON scored five second half goals to demoralise a ten-man Pelsall side who saw red just before half-time.
On a perfect night for football spectators at The Bush Ground were treated to eight goals of high quality as Brocton beat Pelsall 7-1.
Brocton played down the notorious slope in the first half and within minutes were putting the home side under pressure.
Liam Haycock is looking more comfortable with each appearance and got into a good position in the opening stages producing a good volley on six minutes but it drifted wide.
But it was Pelsall who scored first when a searching ball in to the Brocton penalty area found the visitor’s defence flat footed and Pelsall`s number ten gave Adam Whitehouse in the Brocton goal no chance.
This was a wake up call and within a minute Charlie Jones had levelled with a sweetly struck shot into the top corner from distance.
After 20 minutes Pelsall thought they had regained the lead when Whitehouse was beaten by a diagonal shot across the box but the goal was ruled out for offside.
The villains then had their most competitive period of the match as Whitehouse was required to save smartly by the post and then saw a header graze his bar.
Play moved from end to end and it was Haycock again who nearly got on the end of Matt Skinner`s defence splitting pass, and then Gary Fife struck a shot just wide of the home goal.
With the half-time whistle approaching Pelsall`s frustrations boiled over and their centre forward was shown a red card and a number of his colleagues were booked by the referee.
Pelsall`s lack of discipline was quickly punished as Brocton’s Fife who ended a good passing move by sliding the ball home to give Brocton a 2-1 lead.
Richard Jones suffered an injured toe and was replaced at half time by Lucas Putka.
Within five minutes of the restart he controlled a free kick on his chest before volleying home to give Brocton a 3 – 1 lead.
This was followed by Dan Shore scoring spectacularly with an overhead kick from a Jamie Evans corner to make it 4-1 to Brocton.
On 75 minutes Shore was replaced by debutant Damian Charlie and he was immediately in the action, and on 80 minutes Fife fed the ball through to Charlie who scored.
Brocton were now stretching the home side’s ten men and Jamie Evans overlapping on the left ran fully 50 yards before blasting the ball home to make it 6-1.
As the whistle approached Brocton kept their foot on the pedal and Charlie broke through the villains defence only to be upended by the Pelsall keeper.
Fife then stepped up to hit his second of the night, and fifth in the opening two games, both from midfield.
The win leaves Brocton on the maximum points from their opening two games, this Saturday (August 17) Brocton travel to Nuneaton Griff (3.00KO) in the FA Cup extra preliminary round.
