Wealdstone thumped fierce rivals Barnet 5-1 to wrap up a good Easter Weekend where they took four points from a possible six – despite having a huge chunk of their first-team squad on furlough due to the current circumstances. 

A brace from Dennon Lewis and goals from Jerome Okimo, Craig Fasanmade and Jacob Mendy sealed the comfortable win for the Stones over the 10-men Bees.

Wealdstone captain Jerome Okimo got his side off to a dream start as he headed home unmarked from a Danny Green corner in the fifth minute of play. 

It was 2-0 to the Stones on the half hour mark, as the hosts won the ball on the halfway line and broke quickly, with Dennon Lewis firing a deflected strike past the despairing glove of Aymen Azaze.

The Bees finally got their goal back just 120 seconds into the second half, after Vasiliou did brilliantly to get into box before squaring for Courtney Baker-Richardson who couldn't miss.

It all boiled over just before the hour mark, as Baker-Richardson was shown a straight red for what appeared to be violent conduct after 20 of the 22 players were in a scrum pushing and shoving. 

The Stones scored their third of the afternoon, as Craig Fasanmade poked home at the near post.
