Rangers in seventh heaven for semi-final clash

UNDER 15

Comberton 3, March Rangers 7

March took the lead with a goal from Matty Carey, quickly followed by a second from Ben Calvert.

A man of the match performance by Rangers keeper Ron Love kept out Comberton many times to allow Calvert to grab his second goal.

Comberton grabbed one back before the break and then made it 3-2 in the second half evened up the match as the weather deteriorated.

Comberton grabbed an equaliser 10 minutes into the second half but Rangers dug in deep and Carey grabbed his second of the afternoon. Two more for Calvert took his tally to four for the match. Rangers then received a penalty late on and Carey completed his hat-trick goal.

Rangers have a home semi-final at Elm Road March, against Whittlesford this Sunday (10.30) if anybody would like to come along and give the lads some local support.

Netherton 2, Leverington Whites 2

Two of the top teams in the division clashed with Netherton taking a two-goal lead at the break.

Leverington came out for the second half much more determined and started to play their passing football. Goals from Brad Waterfall and Asley Payne gave Leverington a deserved draw.

Swaffham 1, Hungate Rovers 2

Lewis Bass got Hungate off to a flyer with two early goals as they started very well, but Swaffham pulled one back just before half-time.

In the second half Swaffham started to dominate but Rovers defended well as a team and had Marley Woods in great form in goal making a wonder save in the last minute.

A good win for Hungate against a very determined Swaffham team.

Wittering 1, Leverington Blue 1

Leverington made hard work of the point they gained this weekend after going a goal down from an opportunist strike early in the first half.

Jake Smith made the scores level with a great finish. The Blues will have to take their game up a gear to maintain the second spot in the league.

WSM 14, Ketton 1

Saints continued their fine form with a resounding win controlling the game with some excellent football.

Goals were scored by Reagan Brown 6, Ollie Potter 2, Shay Fairclough, J Kiddle, Ross Beart, Jakob Ziabka, Dom Venckus.

Goalkeeper Ben Carter pulled off one fine save in what was an excellent all round team performance.

WSM 3, Sawtry 1

Saints had to dig deep to continue their unbeaten run in the league. Although having the majority of the first half they found themselves trailing 1-0 after conceding an own goal from a corner and Ben Carter pulled off a fine save to keep it at 1-0 at half time.

The second half saw Saints up their game and play some very good football with Reagan Brown scoring an impressive hat-trick. Sawtry deserve credit in making it a very entertaining game.

UNDER 13

Wisbech Acorns 3, Leverington 0

Leverington did not deserve anything from this game after a poor display against a good spirited Acorns side who progressed through to the next round of the cup.

Aaron Bass (mom) fought to the end when others went missing.

Mundford 11, Leverington 0

Runaway leaders of the league Mundford kept up their push for promotion with an easy win against Leverington, who found themselves 8-0 down at the break.

Three more goals in the second half completed the scoring, though Leverington did play a little better. Kai Mead and Aaron Bass worked hard and put a full shift in.

UNDER 12

WSM Yellows 3, Oundle 0

In a tightly fought game, both teams had chances to take the lead in a goalless first half.

The first goal in this game was always going to be important. Ben Gale then got onto a through ball and raced away before lobbing the visiting goalkeeper and soon added a second. Dylan Mason rounded off the scoring with a fine struck corner kick.

Ben Gale and Airdas Prakulisas both had very good games.

WSM Blacks 4, Boston 2

Blacks got off to a terrific start with a goal in the first 40 seconds of the game by Aidan Sewell but Boston were soon on terms again.

Terry Wilmott made it 2-1 but again Boston hit back from the penalty spot late in the first half.

Blacks missed lots of chances before two goals came from Luke Foster and Wilmott to seal the win. Sam Knott was mom.

UNDER 11

Downham Market 4, Estover Park 0

There was a great sense of pride in Estover’s performance against one of Norfolk’s strongest teams.

Estover went close early on, but it was Downham who took the lead approaching half-time which proved crucial. Zach Muholland (mom) was one of many players who stood out for Estover.

Watlington 0, Outwell Swifts 6

Swifts played a disciplined game of football, with some great team work. Kain Ward and Brandon Fance scored in the first half. Ward went on to complete his hat-trick after the break and Fance and Reece Ashman were also on target. James Porter-Chapmen was mom.

UNDER 9

WSM 5, Whittlesey 0

Saints led 1-0 in the first half through Willis Wright, with Sam Fisher and Luke Hensley at the back making brilliant tackles.

After the break Saints dominated with further goals from Brody Warren 2, Brandon Furneux (mom) 2.

Manager Simon Wright said: “We never seemed to get going in the first half, but I knew if we got a second goal it was game over.”

Holbeach 3, March SS 1

March produced a very good team performance against a strong Holbeach team and led 1-0 at half time, with a David Gatty goal.

They were unlucky to concede two late goals and the score did not reflect the performance.
