Hodgson emerged 3-1 winners in a high-quality game, played in a great spirit despite tough conditions.

Carr Hill had chances to take the lead but Hodgson finished the stronger, scoring twice to seal victory.

Alex McGloughlan netted twice for Hodgson, with Sam Khalif also on target.

Besides two-goal McGloughlan, James Wilde was also outstanding for the victors.
