The official scoreline at the end was 10-1 but both sides were sure that Vous had actually scored more such was their dominance towards the end.
Weyline took the lead through Danny Andrews on seven minutes but the tables were soon turned by Ricky Lane’s delightful chip and a fine free-kick from Marco Nott.
