HEREFORD Pegasus put Worcester Raiders to the sword at Sixways as Jordan Williamson scored two brilliant goals in a convincing 4-0 win.

Crawley Cox poked the away side into the lead after an uneventful opening half-hour before Matt James fired in a second just three minutes into the second-half. 

Jordan Williamson then sent a rocket past Joe Sidaway in the Raiders goal to make it 3-0 with just 52 minutes on the clock before the same player produced a moment of magic from 35 yards to thunder in a fourth.

Raiders' afternoon was made even worse in the closing stages when Dean Waldron was sent off five minutes from time as Pegasus repeated their heroics from last year's play-off win at Sixways with another impressive victory.

There was some un-nerving news ahead of kick-off that Raiders' boss Karl Gormley was going to miss the game due to being taken into hospital with a health scare and the 90 minutes that followed were perhaps impacted by that from a Raiders perspective.

Pegasus' Saul Thomas almost caught stand-in keeper Joe Sidaway off his line in the opening five minutes but the Raiders keeper tracked back in time to tip it over the bar. 

Louis Monaghan almost snuck in behind the Pegasus defence and the in-form striker also pulled a shot wide from 12 yards. 

There were not many chances otherwise as the game turned into a scrappy affair that neither side had much dominance in but it would be Pegasus who struck first.

And it was a lovely move as Matt James again got in behind the Raiders' defence and then squared it to Crawley Cox who took a touch before poking past Sidaway to open the scoring. 

Raiders were unable to fashion a chance to equalise before the break and three minutes into the second period, they found themselves 2-0 down. 

After a foul on Carlos Moreira, Jamie Price delivered a wonderful free kick which found James, who then fired into the roof of the net. 

And the hosts had hardly had a chance to readjust to going two goals behind when a third goal flew in from the boot of the brilliant Williamson, who crashed home a strike from 20 yards out. 

Raiders tried to work their way back into the contest but the game was decided in the 72nd minute with another special goal from Williamson.

The ball droped to him on the chest, before he flicked the ball over a Raiders defender and struck a sweet half-volley over the keeper and into the back of the net from 35 yards out. 

The game was done but there was still time for the afternoon to get a little worse for Raiders as Waldron's late challenge on Bradlee Phillips saw him shown a straight red card.

Raiders have now gone three league matches without a win after a day to forget.
