Yeovil Town FC destroyed local rivals Taunton Town In Boxing Day Local Derby.
A record crowd at Huish Park of 6130 watched in delight as Yeovil Town FC blew away their local rivals Taunton 4-1, whilst the game could have seen even more goals.
Yeovil battered the Taunton side in every pitch department, making it look like a training session at times, as the Glovers continuously bombarded Taunton with wave after wave of attacks.
The opening goal came after Morgan Williams picked out Jordan Young through the middle of the park; the winger skipped past one, sped past another and fed Michael Smith, whose inch-perfect cross ball was placed home from 12 yards by Frank Nouble.
The Yeovil fans went wild as the ball hit the back of the net.
Then, with just 20 minutes on the clock,20 minutes gone and the Glovers had the ball in comfortable possession, Matt Worthington sent a long ball forward to Nouble; he brought the ball down and found Michael Smith, who slid the ball home, sending the fans into another frenzy.
In the second half, there was a slight response from the Taunton outfit, but it wasn’t long until they were punished by their hosts again. A goal kick from Taunton keeper Lavercombe saw a sweet through ball from Matt Worthington, with Rhys Murphy keeping a level head as he slotted past the desperately stranded keeper.
The fans went mental as the Thatchers Stand sang a fine rendition of ‘ It’s a Massacre’.
However, there were further goals to come as Yeovil sped down the wings, tearing their visitors apart
Lo Everton found himself in acres of space 25 yards out; not long after having a shot on goal, he fired the shot low and hard; it went off the post and ripped into the Taunton net to make it four.
Huish Park was on fire, with a better atmosphere than most league clubs.
It was a game now of men against boys, although the struggling Taunton side eventually pulled a goal back from a corner, although their game was dead and buried as Yeovil extended their lead at the top of the table.
The result came after comments from the Taunton Chairman had claimed his side would be the biggest in Somerset; on today’s performance, he best start praying for a miracle.
