UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH
BIGGLESWADE UNITED 1-2 PETERBOROUGH NORTHERN STAR
It was looking promising for Biggleswade at the break as they lead through Taylor Rhiney’s heavily deflected shot, but the second from bottom PNS turned it around after the break with goals from Ricky Goodale (51-penalty) and Trey West eight minutes later. The result lifted the visitors back out of the relegation zone and leaves United seven points from safety and still searching for their first point of the season.
EYNESBURY ROVERS 0-2 WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN
The Doughboys moved up to third with a comfortable 2-0 success at Eynesbury. George Wingrove opened the scoring on 11 minutes when he calmly slotted home after a quick break and Jack O’Connor made sure with a far post header from Matt Long’s corner on 54. Leon Lobjoit was sent-off late on for the home side as their miserable evening got worse.
HARBOROUGH TOWN 2-1 COGENHOE UNITED
Nat Ansu came back to haunt his old club with a late winner to keep Harborough on top of the pile. Rico Alexander had given the Cooks a 1-0 half-time lead with his close-range finish, but a superb volley from James Ireland had levelled things up before Ansu nipped in to finish off an excellent move with the decisive goal inside the final ten minutes. This was Cogenhoe’s first defeat in ten matches and a very important win for the Bees if they are to keep their noses ahead of Hinckley LR.
HINCKLEY LRFC 2-0 LUTTERWORTH TOWN
Two second half goals meant that Leicester Road extended their winning start to 13 games against one of their title rivals on Tuesday night. Matt Langham scored the first from the penalty spot after Tom Smith had been fouled inside the box on 54 minutes and Liam Read made sure of the points with a great strike into the top corner five minutes later. This completed the double for the home side who had recently won 3-2 at Dunley Way.
NEWPORT PAGNELL TOWN 1-0 EASINGTON SPORTS
For the second time in recent weeks the Swans picked up all three points by scoring the only goal of the game in the 90th minute. Jim Burnside was the match winner this time with a header from a Kieran Barnes cross. The win lifted the Swans up to sixth spot with games in hand on all three teams directly in front of them.
O.N CHENECKS 1-1 ROTHWELL CORINTHIANS
Despite an injury time equaliser from Tyrell Barnard, Chenecks find themselves back in the bottom two after just three days of ‘safety’. Rothwell must have thought they had secured the points when Zac Allen found the top corner with 87 minutes played, but Chenecks had other ideas. This was Chenecks sixth point of the season and the second against Corinthians who remain five points clear of their hosts.
