A WHIRLWIND start by the Wanderers produced a three goal lead within half an hour.

Shaun Gibson completed the visitors' goal tally soon after, finishing off a solo run with a clinical finish.
After the storm came the calm, which saw Global taking control and getting a goal back through Poynter just before the break.
