Both subs used
1st minute: Jason White pulls off a brave point blank save from Gav Mackie.
8th minute: Dean Rick opens the scoring when he lobs Liam Joyce from 12 yards, with what is the Bulls first shot on goal
12th minute: Dean Rick fouled as he homes in on the Moorlands goal. Penalty awarded. Liam Joyce saves Ryan Williams spot kick, but 'Rhino' scores from the rebound.
14th minute: Craig Mitchell's cross finds Dean Rick, who turns the ball into the net despite the attentions of Joyce and two defenders.
16th minute: Dean Rick picks up a pass from Craig Mitchell out on the left hand side of the area, drops his shoulder and sees off a challenge then drills the ball just inside the post to complete an eight minute hat trick.
25th minute: Defence splitting pass from Mark Dudley, sends Dean Rick through, where he wrong foots Liam Joyce before 'tickling' the ball into the back of the net.
35th minute: The home side are rattled as Lincoln Moorlands pull a goal back, when Sam Triffitt spanks home a quality goal from 20 yards.
38th minute: Leigh Warman headed back towards his own keeper, but Dean Rick had run through on his blind side and 'dinked' the ball over the unfortunate Liam Joyce.
42nd minute: Lincoln hoist the ball into the Bulls penalty area, to where Chris Timons, up like a salmon, crashes a textbook header past his own keeper and into the roof of the net.
HT: The Bulls 6 v The Moor 2
48th minute: Gav Mackie strikes a sweet shot from 12 yards out that rattles back off of the left hand upright with Jason White well beaten.
49th minute: Danny Naylor manages to prise the ball away from Dean Rick for a few moments and scores the home side's eight goal of the night.
57th minute: Dean Rick holds off the attentions of Lincoln's centre half, before 'caressing' the ball past Liam Joyce.
59th minute: Jake Park latches onto a loose ball as Lincoln struggle to clear their lines and 'nudges' the ball past Liam Joyce, who by this point will probably never speak to any of his defenders again, ever!
62nd minute: Declan Brewin's fierce strike is turned away by Liam Joyce, but Craig Mitchell is on hand to 'punt' the ball over the line.
65th minute: Chris Timons has a déjà vu moment as he nets goal number 12 for his side and celebrates after checking that he is in front of the right goal this time.
88th minute: Declan Brewin storms forwards a full forty yards down the right flank, leaving all comers in his wake, before 'pinging' a powerful angled shot towards the goal, that zipped into the side netting... although from my perch at the far end of the pitch I thought it had actually gone in.
FT: AFC Mansfield 12 v Lincoln Moorlands 2
