Captain Moses Hutchinson-Pascal struck seven goals as Swiss Cottage-based Highbury Korfball Club cruised to a comfortable 19-9 home win over Mitcham.
Highbury were back in London Regional League action following last week’s thrilling Promotion Division draw against Croydon, and they raced into an early 4-0 lead through two goals from Niccola Hyslop, and one each from Bernard Martin and Hutchinson-Pascal.
Mitcham hit back with a penalty but Ana Rocha, debutant Inge Carrington and Hutchinson-Pascal put the hosts 7-1 up with only 20 minutes gone – and Matthew Dodds and Carrington stretched the lead to 9-2 at the interval.
Mitcham came out for the second half looking to make up for lost time and lost goals and they drew first blood after the interval via a long-range effort.
Hutchinson-Pascal replied for the home team to complete his hat-trick, but Mitcham struck four times in a row to get right back into the contest at 10-7.
Dodds then popped up with a crucial goal to ease his side’s nerves, and Hutchinson-Pascal then took the game by the scruff of the neck with a real captain’s performance.
His two goals knocked the stuffing out of the Mitcham comeback, restoring a six-goal cushion, and Dodds wrapped up his own treble before Hutchinson-Pascal hit two more.
