Phillips does the trick as Brid hit Railway for nine
BRIDLINGTON Town crushed Lincoln Moorlands Railway 9-2 – led by a Scott Phillips hat-trick.
Phillips started the rout after only four minutes when he headed a deep cross from Billy Logan past the hapless Craig Turner.
Tony Law put a free header straight at Brid keeper Mark Wilberforce before a Josh Greening strike was ruled out for offside.
But Town doubled their lead after nine minutes, with Phillips becoming the provider for Tom Fleming to hit a vicious 15-yard left foot shot past Turner.

With 18 minutes gone, Phillips found Fleming on the left and he broke into the area before putting the ball into the middle where Weaver tried in vain to cut it out and as the ball headed goal-wards Greening ran it in to make sure.
Three minutes later, Tom Parker broke up a neat Town move and played the ball forward for Patrick Siba to start a swift counter attack that found Law in the clear and he went on to fire emphatically past Wilberforce.
A minute later, the three-goal lead was restored when Greening pulled the ball back from Nathan Cook's pass for Phillips to convert.
Cook should have done better than putting an attempted chip straight to Turner after 31 minutes, before Phillips was clattered just outside the penalty area by Joel Evans, who was shown a yellow card.
Chris Batchelor touched the free-kick to Ash Allanson whose ball in was headed inches over by Logan.
Phillips got his third ten minutes before half-time by beating the offside trap to collect from Fleming and run on to confront Turner, who saved the initial shot with his feet but the ball hit Phillips and went into the net.
Phillips was given a rest at the break for a job well done and was replaced by Craig Hogg.
Kevin Lusamba had two early opportunities for the visitors but he put the first over the bar and his run into the area following a mistake by Fleming was brought to a halt when Wilberforce came out to save.
Lincoln had started well in the second period and Lusamba again tricked his way into the box to set up Law, who shot too high.
Lincoln got their reward just before the hour when Town's defence went missing and loanee Taylor, who was probably their best player, took full advantage to fire crisply past Wilberforce.
This setback stung the hosts into action, with Lee putting a 30-yard lob just over before Hogg's pass found Greening in space to shoot past Turner on 64 minutes.
A Cook header was held by Turner, who then saved the first of two penalties, one from Greening and one from Logan.
With 20 minutes left, Logan fired low into the net from the right hand side of the penalty area, before Cook completed the rout by adding two late goals.
Bridlington Town: Wilberforce, Lee, Logan, Ash Allanson, Jenkinson, Cook, Belt, Fleming (c), Phillips (Hogg 46), Batchelor, Greening (Aaron Allanson 70). Unused substitute: Fraser (GK).
