Deeping United stormed to their biggest victory of the season after hitting 12 goals in Saturday's away success at Huntingdon Rovers.

Steve Jucikas and Daryn Whiteman - the top two goalscorers in Division Three of the Peterborough League - led the spree as United turned on the style in the second half by scoring eight times without reply.

The in-form Whiteman netted five times to take his tally for the season to 20 while skipper Jucikas scored four to remain two clear of his team-mate at the top of the goalscoring charts.

Markus Turunen, Matt Gunns and Jake Lyon were also on target for a United side who have got their season back on track following the departures last month of the prolific strike duo Nathan Smith and Ryan Ellwood.

United broke the deadlock after 12 minutes when Turunen teed up Jucikas to open the scoring before they netted three times in as many minutes.

Lyon laid on the pass for Turunen to double the lead before Whiteman opened his goalscoring account for the afternoon from Reece Parker's assist.

Jucikas scored his second and United's fourth from Gunns' pass before Huntingdon reduced the arrears with a looping shot from Connor Lewis.

United then looked for an immediate response from kick-off as Matty Kent launched an audacious effort from the centre circle which rattled against the home crossbar.

They then upped their work-rate and intensity after the break to add a fifth within 11 minutes of the restart as Whiteman converted Gunns' pass.

Their goal of the game then arrived seven minutes later as Whiteman played the ball into Jucikas who, with his back to goal, flicked it with his in-step past the defender for his strike partner to run onto and finish with aplomb to complete his hat-trick.

Parker then provided the ball for Whiteman to make it seven two minutes later before he rounded off his five-goal haul from Steven Christmas' pass.

Four further goals then arrived in the final 12 minutes as Turunen set up Gunns to score with a header before Parker's third assist was converted by Jucikas for his treble.

Whiteman set up Jucikas for the penultimate goal before Lyon completed the rout in the final minute from Jucikas' pass.

The emphatic victory means United have scored 27 goals in the last three games as they have bounced back strongly from the disappointing defeat against Cardea Reserves at the end of last month.

They host King's Cliffe this weekend who went down to a 5-1 home reversal against FC Peterborough Reserves on Saturday with Alex Walton netting their consolation.
