STEVE Murty scored a magnificent seven goals as Prestwich put 10 goals past Hesketh Casuals on Saturday.

But the fortunes of Mike Kosub's men took a turn for the worse on Monday in their final match of the Lancashire Amateur League season when they were beaten 5-1 at relegation strugglers Castle Hill.

David Prieto equalised to make it 1-1 before half time, but the home side hit four goals in the second half to inflict Prestwich's first defeat in 14 league matches.

A final-day loss did little to dampen the enthusiasm following Saturday's cricket score against Hesketh.

Murty kicked off the scoring in the 14th minute from the penalty spot after Andy Davies had been brought down.

A Kieran Comiskey strike after 30 minutes then opened the floodgates.

Murty followed up with his second of the game, then Davies set up Darren Buckley before Murty put in a beautiful cross from the right that centre-back Richard Steadman converted with a bullet header.

Prieto rounded off the scoring before the break, sweeping home Mike Neary's cross.

Murty completed his hat-trick to make it 6-0 shortly after the restart, ending a brilliant individual goal from the half-way line by slotting past the keeper.

Hesketh pulled a couple goals back before Murty completed his one-man demolition of the Hesketh defence with four more goals, while the visitors managed just one more in reply.

The result, coupled with Monday's defeat, left Prestwich fourth in the table, with 46 points from their 26 games.
