Hadleigh United 2
Kirley & Pakefield 3
Hadleigh United lost their third successive league match as Kirkley’s Ross King claimed a hat-trick at the Millfield on Tuesday.
King bundled in his first goal after 23 minutes as Hadleigh failed to deal with a corner kick, appeals for a foul on keeper Dan Heath being waved away
Heath made a fine save from Maxwell Kirby before Marcus Josiah equalised with a shot from the right that deceived keeper Jordan Smith.
Kirkley broke away at speed and King made it 2-1 before Hadleigh were again caught out by a corner after 74 minutes and King gratefully accepted the chance for their third.
Two minutes before the end, Kris Rose left keeper Smith standing with a good finish to reduce the deficit.
n Hadleigh Reserves lost 2-1 against Saffron Walden (Kyle Cassell) at the Millfield, on Saturday.
