#Nathan Wells was not about to be left out.
#Three minutes later, Wells – on an assist from midfielder Marlon Barnes – scored on a bending strike to slip the ball in the upper left corner of the goal to give The Mingoes a 3-0 advantage.

#Morgan Wood, who had a close opportunity on the fifth goal for the Mingoes, was going to make sure he was on the scorecard.
#Another long pass and Wood connected in the 62nd minute to put The Mingoes up 6-0.

#Head coach Dion Godet said the team members are proving they have the capacity to play good football. “The coaching team has been putting a lot of time in to develop a new system and the guys are buying into the system,” he said. “That’s the message we take from this, the new system can work and produce really good football if we stick with the system.”
#Green, who scored another hat trick plus one – four goals – said the win is a team effort as they watched film to make some corrections from the first match.
#“We came out and executed everything the coach showed us in the video session and made corrections on our formation and it paid off here tonight,” he said.
#Wells, who scored an outstanding goal in the first half, said the team is coming to make some noise in the league.
#“We played as a team and we have some really good players on this team,” he said. “We came together to get that result and that was the win.”
#The Mingoes next play Baha Juniors FC 5pm Sunday at The Roscow R.L. Davies pitch.
