Ahenkorah keeps up scoring run as Valley seal hat-trick

Editorial Correspondent 19th Oct, 2021 Updated: 19th Oct, 2021

EDWIN Ahenkorah netted his third goal in three games to wrap up Rugby Town’s third win in a row, defeating Eynesbury Rovers 3-1 at Butlin Road.

The Valley scored twice just before half-time in Saturday’s United Counties League Premier Division South contest as first Danico Johnson sprinted onto David Kolodynski’s through-ball to finish first time before Loyiso Recci added a second from close range after Kolodynski had flicked on Max Johnson’s free-kick.

Managerless Eynesbury had a chance to cut the deficit just after half-time but stand-in goalkeeper Jake Woodward saved a penalty on his debut after signing on the eve of the game due to injury to Ash Bodycote.

Ahenkorah made it three goals in three games late on when he converted a penalty he had won himself before the visitors got a late consolation through Kevin Osei-Addo.

The result leaves Carl Adams’ side seventh in the table.

Rugby are next in action on Sunday when they head to Belper United in the FA Vase, kick-off 3pm.
