Hebburn Town picked up their third consecutive victory putting three past Penrith at Frenchfield Park today.

Carl Taylor put the visitors in front midway through the first half before two goals in two minutes from Graeme Armstrong sealed the win in the second half.

It was a quiet start for both sides as they battled in midfield, and the first chance didn’t come until the 29th minute when Willy Paul sliced the ball just wide for Penrith.

Two minutes later, Hebburn took the lead when Taylor got his foot on the end of a good cross from Michael Richardson beating the goalkeeper.

Five minutes into the second half, the Hornets nearly made it 2-0 when Tom Potter made a good run across the edge of the box and he played through Lewis Suddick whose effort went just over the bar.

In the 56th minute, Hebburn doubled their lead when Armstrong headed home on the end of a good corner from Richardson.

Two minutes later, Armstrong added his second of the game when Potter made a good run on the right and the veteran forward headed home at the far post on the end of an impressive cross.

Suddick had another attempt at goal in the 76th minute when his long range strike went just over the bar.

Nine minutes later, Potter made another good run on the right and Richardson just put the ball over on the end of Potter’s short pass.

Hebburn’s last chance to make it 4-0 came in the 90th minute when substitute Luke Sullivan had a shot well kept-out by Penrith ‘keeper Luke Miller.

The result sees Kevin Bolam’s side move up to second in the league table.
