UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH
COGENHOE UNITED 0-3 G.N.G OADBY TOWN
Defensive mistakes were punished as Cogenhoe were deservedly beaten by a well organised Oadby team. The first goal was a gift, although Craig Foxall did well to save a Nuno Gomes shot as the Oadby player found himself clear through, but the striker was quickly onto the rebound to slot home. Oadby handled the wind much better and there was little the Cooks could do about the second goal as a great strike from outside the box from sub Elidjah Mangwa flew into the net after 61 minutes and it was game over two minutes later when the visitors punished another mistake at the back as Musa Bham lifted the ball over the now stranded keeper to make it 3-0.
DESBOROUGH TOWN 0-2 HARBOROUGH TOWN
It was a cross-border local derby at Waterworks Field and it was the high-flying visitors who were celebrating after a 2-0 away win. Ben Williams opened the scoring with Josh Walsh adding the second in the first half despite kicking into the wind and these goals proved to be enough to secure The Bees 15th league win of the season.
EASINGTON SPORTS 3-0 EYNESBURY ROVERS
Easington eased to a 3-0 win over an Eynesbury team who have now lost their last seven games to move level on points with today’s opponents. Piers Walton opened the scoring after 9 minutes with the only goal of the first half. Lucas Northover added a second a minute before the hour with a close range finish and it was Northover who completed the scoring from the penalty spot eighteen minutes from time.
GODMANCHESTER ROVERS 3-1 LONG BUCKBY
The Bucks were unable to build on their excellent midweek win at Rugby as goals from Michael Baulk, Lawrence Hammond and sub Jamie Judge outweighed Ryan Ansell’s 35th equaliser at Bearscroft Lane.
HINCKLEY LRFC 2-0 WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN
Leicester Road made it 16 straight wins with a 2-0 home win over Wellingborough Town who sat in third spot before the game. Danny Jenno headed the home side in front after 5 minutes from Tom Smith’s chipped cross and Smith netted the second with a great finish after 31 minutes. The Doughboys were by no means a pushover as they played some neat football and pushed to get back into the game, but Will Highland kept another clean sheet for the Hinckley club as they continue to march on with this incredible start to the season, although Harborough remain snapping at their heels just waiting for the first slip-up.
LUTTERWORTH TOWN 3-2 POTTON UNITED
Lutterworth reclaimed third spot, but were pushed all the way by Potton who had looked like they were about to cause a bit of an upset at Dunley Way. Luke Pyman gave the visitors the lead on 18 minutes and that is how it stayed until the break. Justin Peace levelled things up within two minutes of the restart, but Aaron McArdle converted from the penalty spot with 65 minutes played to restore the visitors lead. We had played 82 minutes when Kade Lewis scored for the second game running to make it 2-2 and two minutes later that man Tendai Daire popped up with what proved to be the winning goal.
NEWPORT PAGNELL TOWN 2-1 COVENTRY SPHINX
After a goalless first half, Adam Pryke put the home side ahead on 53 minutes from a Webb cross. Louis Guest levelled things up for the Coventry side on 71 minutes, but parity lasted just two minutes before substitute Jim Burnside headed the Swans second of the afternoon.
O.N CHENECKS 0-3 BIGGLESWADE UNITED
Biggleswade finally have their first points of the season at the 17th time of asking as they ran out convincing 3-0 winners at second from bottom O.N Chenecks. Goalless in the first half, the visitors took the lead on 53 minutes with a great low strike by Taylor Rhiney from outside the box. The next goal was going to be a pivotal one and it was United who got it on 76 minutes. Rhiney beat his man on the left before sliding in Braima Fati who set up Charlie Clayton who made no mistake as he tapped the ball home, then on 79 minutes it was three for the visitors as Fati was played clear inside the box on the left and he placed his shot across Nathan Adamson and inside the far post. Big well done to Biggleswade who have put those early season hammerings behind them and grown week by week and have finally picked up their first win as a UCL club.
PETERBOROUGH NORTHERN STAR 0-6 RUGBY TOWN
Max Johnson fired valley into the lead from the edge of the box from a Luke English pull back after 7 minutes and this set the tone for things to come. Johsnon got his second on 22 minutes as he volleyed home from a Liam Francis header with an unstoppable shot and the lead was increased further when David Kolodynski netted after the home defence failed to deal with a long Luke English throw ten minutes later. Dylan Parker came off the bench to join in the scoring on 66 minutes when he chipped the keeper with Kolodynski claiming the assist, before two goals in the final twelve minutes put the icing on the cake. Edwin Ahenkorah set up Liam Francis to score from 6-yards with 78 minutes gone and Parker then set up English to drill home his first goal for the club two minutes later.
ROTHWELL CORINTHIANS 1-2 COVENTRY UNITED
Coventry hit back with two goals in the last five minutes to take the points in Rothwell after falling behind to a 28th minute strike from Zak Allen. United had been knocking on the door, but time seemed to be running out for them before Curvin Ellis fired home the equaliser on 85 minutes and then in the final minute Kyle Carey was played through on goal and he slotted the ball past Jude O’Connor for a late winner.
