beats keeper Jago for the Saints' fifth goal.
Scott Ruscoe and Michael Wilde grabbed the headlines with two goals apiece, but it was Jamie

His pace and skill were a constant threat to the Canaries and he had a hand in four of the
goals after Ruscoe had opened the Saints' account with a free-kick following a handball offence
by Dave Ridler on the edge of the box in the 41st-minute.
Alfie Carter quickly added the second following Wood's surging midfield run, finding himself
in acres of space to pick his spot past keeper Michael Jago.
Wilde missed a sitter and then hit the crossbar from 22-yards before grabbing two goals inside
three minutes, both following more good work by Wood.
Carter beat his marker on the left touchline to set-up Ruscoe, who raced into the box before
beating Jago inside his near post, but the goal of the night came from Barry Hogan.
The right-back stormed forward and interchanged a quick one-two with Wood before crashing his
shot into the back of the net from 20-yards to round-off a memorable win for the Saints.
