Kike scores four as Europa thrash Lynx

Enrique ‘Kike’ Bernal scored four goals as Europa hammered Lynx 7-0 to move four points clear at the top of the Premier Division in spectacular style.

After a slow start to the game Europa broke the deadlock in the 19th minute, Liam Walker delivered a corner which found Guillermo Roldan who headed the ball past Robert Rae. Europa kept pressing high up the pitch but couldn’t find a way past a well organised Lynx defence. 

Referee blew for half-time with Europa leading 1-0. Two minutes into the second half Europa doubled their lead, Kike capitalised on a defensive error and rolled the ball into an empty net. Minutes later Europa nearly made it 3-0 but Rae made up for his earlier error to tip over Liam Walker’s close range shot.

On the hour mark Lynx nearly pulled a goal back, Yacine Abed Serandi was too quick for Belfortti and ran on goal but fired his effort over the bar. Six minutes later Europa made it 3-0, Liam Walker received the ball from a short corner and whipped in a sublime cross which was volleyed in by Martin Belfortti. 

Two minutes later and it was 4-0, Kike picked up a loose ball in the box and lobbed it over the on-rushing Rae. In the 75th minute Kike got his hat-trick and Europa’s fifth as he latched onto a through ball and slotted it into the bottom corner. Five minutes later it was 6-0 and again, Kike was on hand to slot the ball past Rae with a tidy finish.

86th minute and Europa made it 7-0, Alex Quillo picked out Kike with a through ball, the striker squared it to youngster Yeray Romero who tapped the ball into an empty net. Lynx had a chance to pull a goal back in added time but Charlie Mitchell fired his shot wide from close after some great build-up play.

Europa saw out the last few minutes and walked away with all three points in a comfortable win. Europa move four points clear at the top for now while Lynx’s poor run continues as they have only picked up one point from seven games.
