(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Muscat Storm returned to its familiar formation during its recent game against HMS Somerset and was duly rewarded, securing a dominating 4-1 win at Seeb Club, its home ground.

Storm looked in charge right from the start. Its players were comfortable with ball possession, forcing Somerset to play much of the first half on the edge of its own box.

Luis Miguel and Mikey Henderson were linking well upfront and their movement caused a lot of problems for the rival team. The first clear chance fell to Henderson when Kirk McPherson sent a cross from the right. Henderson's header just missed the target, though. Storm continued to push and created a few more chances, but it couldn't find the target. That was until the 25th minute when a pass from Jay Wynter split Somerset's defence. Billy Reader sent a well-directed cross that was met by Henderson. He found the back of the net with a header to put Storm 1-0 up.

It was the same duo that combined for Storm's second goal as well. Neil McCoy started a move and a cross from the left foot of Reader found Henderson, who again headed the ball in.

In the ten minutes before the break, Storm kept creating chances, while HMS Somerset barely threatened its opponent.

Storm took its foot off the gas with the start of the second half and Somerset tried to take advantage of it. It was rewarded in the 50th minute when goalkeeper Lawrence Baker's punch resulted in a loose ball coming in the way of an HMS Somerset striker, who calmly tapped the ball in to make it 1-2 for his team.

The match was, however, back in Storm's control when McCoy made a fast run down the left and finished the move with an impressive goal that put his side ahead at 3-1.

Shortly after, Storm could have hammered in another goal when Johnny Murphy's run deceived the HMS Somerset defence. But his shot narrowly missed the post.

Storm didn't have to wait long to make it 4-1, thanks to some good work from McPherson that compelled an HMS Somerset defender to get into a tackle with him inside the box. Storm earned a penalty and McPherson converted from the spot without any fuss.

Lee Ebbutt, Muscat Storm's manager, said, ''We played well tonight, we turned ball possession into chances, of which we finished four. We pulled HMS Somerset all over the pitch in the first half, and when they got tired, we took full advantage. This result continues our unbeaten run this year."
