Thrilling win against Haughmond with Kolodynski hat-trick and two for Wiggins-Thomas

Rugby Town notched up their first league win since the end of September, beating Haughmond 5-3 away from home on Saturday. Their hosts were 2-0 up within ten minutes, but David Kolodynski’s goals in the 31st, 43rd and 50th minute, combined with strikes from Ruben Wiggins-Thomas in the 36th and 53rd were enough for the very welcome three points. Haughmond added their final score from the penalty spot with 15 minutes to go.
