West Auckland Town crushed second-bottom Washington 7-1 at Darlington Road in the Ebac Northern League First Division on Tuesday night and are now third in the table.

Nathan Fisher put them ahead from a pass by Anthony Bell, but Harry Wood quickly equalised from the edge of the area.

Dan Parker headed West back in front from a corner, then Fisher made it 3-1 in a goalmouth scramble.

Bell chipped the keeper from a Fisher pass for 4-1, and Fisher completed his second hat-trick in four days when he fired home just on half-time.

Arran Wearmouth scored the sixth on 51 minutes with a low shot, then Fisher had a penalty saved.

Bell added the seventh with a shot that went in off the post.

Consett are now five points clear in second place after they beat Jarrow Roofing 3-2 at Belle View.

In the Second Division, Billingham Town striker Ashley Lavan scored a hat-trick in the first half-hour on their way to a 6-1 win over Jarrow.
