Billingham made the trip to Prudhoe and brought the three points back thanks to a Matty Willshaw hat-trick.

Synthonia opened the scoring in the 3rd minute when Jonny Peacock played into MATTY WILLSHAW on the edge of the box and he saw the ball past Prudhoe keeper Thomas White and in.

Synners doubled their advantage less than a minute later as Adam Groom won possession on the left and played to Ryu Williamson who went past a defender and squared to MATTY WILLSHAW to fire in with a first time shot.

Prudhoe scored next when, in the 8th minute, KYLE COCKBURN picked up on a loose ball and shot from distance which Synners keeper James Young got a hand to the ball, but couldn't prevent it from going in.

Billingham restored their two-goal advantage in the 32nd minute as Peacock traded passes with Lewis Porritt before lifting the ball over a defender to MATTY WILLSHAW to fire in his hat-trick from close range.

Half-time: Prudhoe 1, Synners 3

After the break Prudhoe made a couple of advances on the Billingham goal with Young denying the hosts with a couple of good saves.

The home side though did find a way through when in the 75th minute a ball in from the left found KYLE GILMOUR in the penalty area and he finished well.

Synners were reduced to ten men deep into added-on time when substitute Cameron Wilson received a second yellow card.
