Cambridge reserves struck their 40th goal of the season to stay clear at the top of the Lotto NRFL second division reserves league with a 4-0 win against Te Atatu.
The Reds hosted Te Atatu at the club’s neighbours, the Cambridge Harriers and Athletics Club, after a week of rain left the scheduled pitch sodden.
And Cambridge took to the unfamiliar pitch with a vengeance, scoring twice in each half to take the points.
Leading goalscorer Andrew Taylor scored twice before the break – the first was a screamer – giving him 13 goals for the season so far – a tally that exceeds all the goals he’s scored since he joined the club nine years ago.
In the second spell, Mason Woodall extended Cambridge’s lead to 3-0 and then Jack O’Leary benefitted from a Te Atatu defensive mix-up to record the team’s fourth goal.
Man of the Match was Cambridge skipper Dehein Hindley.
The win against the 8th-placed Aucklanders gives Cambridge 40 goals from 10 outings.
