Nicholson: Opened the scoring

Nicholson: Opened the scoring

Paul Buckle's young Torquay side scored three goals in six minutes at Plainmoor in a 3-0 win against Northampton.

Left-back Kevin Nicholson got the ball rolling with a thumping left-foot drive to beat Town goalkeeper Oscar Jannson in the 44th minute.

The second half was barely a minute old when left winger Danny Stevens teed up Chris Zebroski to double Torquay's tally.

Jannson found Zebroski's first shot - from just inside the box - too hot to hold, and the Gulls forward was first to the loose ball to convert.

A brilliant passing move then resulted in Lee Mansell releasing striker Elliot Benyon to make it 3-0 with a shot on the run in the 50th minute.

Town substitute Michael Jacobs crashed a 25-yard free-kick off the crossbar after 65 minutes.

Man-of-the-match Nicholson countered by bouncing a free-kick from similar distance off the woodwork with 10 minutes remaining.
