"We are, as a whole team, getting better with every match. We are making sure our last touch is good too.
"The spirit in the dressing room is great and we have some momentum now, which we want to take into our next game away to Emley.
"I nearly put myself on to start, but decided to go on the bench instead. I am glad to say I wasn't needed."
It didn't look promising for the hosts, though, with Hemsworth taking the lead in the first minute – Varley heading home from a corner.
Louth equalised less than a minute later with a fabulous goal by Kennedy after great work by Broughton.
Hemsworth's goalkeeper, Dale Walston, took a crack to the head attempting to prevent Louth's equaliser.
After receiving extensive treatment on the pitch, the stopper was taken to hospital and everyone at Louth wishes him a quick recovery.
The match resumed and Broughton gave Louth the lead in the 38th minute before Willoughby made it 3-1 four minutes later.
After the break, Jack Wightwick hit the woodwork with a shot as Louth went for a fourth. It came in the 59th minute from Broughton.
Kennedy also added his second to make the score 5-1. The Louth man dedicated his double to his grandfather who had died the previous night.
Hemsworth earned a penalty in the 69th minute, which Ian MacTaggart saved superbly to preserve the four-goal lead.
