Hebburn Town earned a hard fought 3-0 victory over Willington Town in the Northern League Division 2 on Saturday.
Second half goals from Adam Rundle and a brace from Jason Blackburn secured the points went to Hebburn.
Willington started the game brightly and enjoyed the majority of possession in the opening half, without troubling returning Hebburn goalkeeper Steven Hubert.
Hebburn started controlling the match after the 30 minute mark, with captain Channon North missing a good chance when heading over from six yards out following a good cross from Callum Smith.
Hebburn started the second half brightly and were denied a couple of good chances by the visiting Willington goalkeeper.
The deadlock was finally broken in the 70th minute when substitute Rundle fired home from 20 yards for Hebburn.
And Hebburn doubled their lead on 80 minutes with Jason Blackburn lobbing the advancing Willington goalkeeper, following a through ball from North.
In the 85th minute Hebburn sealed the points when man of the match Jason Blackburn chased down a back pass and rounded the keeper to make it 3-0 from a tight angle.
Hebburn Town manager Scott Olivier said: “Willington were well organised and we struggled to create many chances, until Adam Rundle came on and produced a bit of class for the first goal. A clean sheet was massive for us, as was another good crowd of 114.”
