WWEST Hampstead overcame a two-goal deficit to thump London Wayfarers in the last game before the Christmas break at Brent Cross on Saturday.
WH were twice punished for a brace of defensive errors and found themselves 2-0 down after 22 minutes. But WH had drawn level by half-time and bagged a second-half brace to run out comfortable winners.
Jason Brooks opened the scoring for WH when he netted from the second of two short corners after Steve Ubsdell and Simon Yeo had scored for the visitors.
Tom Kimberley followed up with a goal from open play minutes later and Jamie Dru's men dominated play for the remainder of the half.
In the second half WH simply upped the tempo and the hosts took the lead in the 47th minute with a well worked goal from Kimberley. Mark Little slotted WH's fourth midway through the half.
"They were an organised unit and they applied a lot of pressure for the first 20 minutes," said WH's delighted coach Harvinder Sibia.
"They opened the scoring after a defensive error. We then we made another error and they scored again.
"But we took control from there to score twice and were really controlling the game from then.
"It was a very, very good win and I am very positive that we can now start climbing the table after our recent good performances.
"If we continue to play as well as we are playing we can finish in the top four in the league.
West Hampstead: Armstrong, Brooks, Butler, Culverhouse, Dru, Harrison, Kavanagh, Kimberly, Koch, Lancastle, Little, Williamson, Willetts.
