FOUR goals by Josh Wagstaff helped Pool beat Otley Town 7-4 in a classic local derby at Pool on Saturday.

Otley Town opened the scoring against the run of play, Kyle Jeffrey beating the advancing keeper from the edge of the area.

Josh Wagstaff then levelled the scores, forcing the ball home following a goalmouth scramble.

Wagstaff was on hand again to finish the job when Ryan Firth made a strong run down the right, putting in a perfect square ball.

Pool looked reasonably comfortable until Town's Germayne Woodley fired a 25-yard shot past Andy Doey to level the scores.

Connor Wilson soon added a third for Town to regain a 3-2 lead.

Pool though were determined with all 11 players fighting for every ball and levelled again when Billy Drake headed on for Wagstaff to put Josh Waite through, his shot beating the Town keeper.

Town were always dangerous on the counter, and keeper Doey made a couple of vital saves.

Waite was involved again, putting in a shot which the Town keeper could not hold. Ryan Firth on hand to put Pool back in front at 4-3.

Substitute Scott Firth then benefitted from a well-weighted through ball from Jack Farrimond, firing a powerful left foot strike across the keeper and into the net.

Wilson was then on target again for Town getting them back within a goal at 5-4 and making the last ten minutes interesting.

Pool's nerves were calmed when Wagstaff completed his hat-trick with a left foot shot into the corner of the net.

Then to put the icing on the cake, Wagstaff fired a 30-yard screamer that Town's keeper could only watch.

The win moves Pool up to 12th in West Yorkshire League Division One, while Otley Town are tenth.
