Trafford’s ten game unbeaten league run came to an end on Saturday when they were thrashed 6-1 in blizzard conditions on the artificial pitch at Hyde.

Tom Baker’s side hadn’t tasted defeat since their 2-1 loss at Prescot on September 19th and started this game confidently enough with some neat possession football.

However, in the 15th minute, Hyde striker Tom Pratt was allowed to turn and shoot by some slack defending in a packed penalty area and although Grant Shenton got a hand to the ball he was unable to prevent it from trickling over the line.

Trafford were level inside four minutes when the hosts failed to clear a right wing corner and Jack Dorney fired in a shot from the edge of the penalty area that took a deflection and looped over goalkeeper Peter Crook.

Steve Mason headed straight at Crook from close range shortly afterwards and Grant Shenton produced a brilliant save to tip a Matthew Beadle drive past the upright.

In the 35th minute Hyde regained the lead when Luke Porritt floated a glorious cross to the back post where Karl Jones rose above Mason and headed past Shenton, and two minutes later a mazy run by Jones, ended with a poor clearance by Paul Linwood that allowed Beadle to crash a shot into the top corner from 20 yards.

Hyde were now in the ascendancy and Karl Jones struck the post with an audacious piece of skill before Tyrone Gay’s close range header was bravely saved by Shenton.

Disaster struck for Trafford just three minutes into the second half when centre back Andy Langford was uncharacteristically caught in possession inside his own penalty area and Matthew Beadle blasted a great drive into the top corner to make it 4-1.

The visitors were dispirit4d and despondent and with the snow falling heavily they were praying for an abandonment.

But it wasn’t to be and two goals by substitute David Brown in the 76th and 87th minutes, both the result of catastrophic defending, completed the scoring.

Trafford will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Saturday when they host Skelmersdale United at the First Point Shawe View Stadium, kick off 3 p.m., before embarking on a busy schedule over the festive period that sees them play four games in nine days.
