UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH
EASINGTON SPORTS 1-2 HINCKLEY LRFC
It almost goes without saying now but Hinckley LR won again, but they were pushed by Easington and had to work for their 2-1 away success. The win moves HLR five points clear of Harborough with both clubs having played 17 games to put them in the driving seat at this stage of the season. Tom Smith put the league leaders ahead on 5 minutes, but Sports hit back through Lucas Northover eleven minutes later. Simon Allcott restored Hinckley’s lead a minute before the break and that is how it stayed until the final whistle. The Banbury side played over half the game with ten men after Joe White had been sent off for handball.

Eynesbury brought their losing streak to and end as they picked up a point in a goalless draw at home to Rothwell Corinthians.
G.N.G OADBY TOWN 2v4 COVENTRY UNITED
Curvin Ellis took advantage of a good pass to give the visitors the lead after 6 minutes and one minute later it was two as Taylor Haddow seized on a mistake from the home keeper and set up Kyle Carey to fire home. Carey struck again with his second of the game as he took a through ball and beat his man before slotting home, but things changed for the striker in the 36th minute when he was shown a straight red card. Mussa Bham reduced the arrears on 52 minutes but Blowers put United further ahead with 12 minutes left as he played a one-two with Charlie Faulkner before tapping in. Yaegan Gore grabbed a consolation deep into stoppage time, but it was much too late for The Poachers to take anything away from this game.
LONG BUCKBY 0-6 NEWPORT PAGNELL TOWN
Danny Webb gave the visitors the lead at Station Road with a well taken goal as he rounded the keeper to slot home and Kieran Barnes curled home a second from the edge of the box to double the lead. Adam Pryke thought he had added another before the break, but the flag was up for offside against him. Mo Ahmed became the second Swan to have a goal ruled out for offside, but Webb was put clear and rounded the keeper for score for the second time in the game to extend their advantage. Darryl Smith added a fourth direct from a corner that the keeper got to but couldn’t keep out and Lewis Markey soon added a fifth after the keeper had parried a shot from Smith and then sub Jim Burnside rounded off the half-dozen with a lovely finish.

Dylan Wilson pulled one back from the penalty spot with five minutes left, but the home side held on to go through.
DESBOROUGH TOWN 0-8 PETERBOROUGH SPORTS
Desborough had the draw that nobody wanted as they faced a very good Peterborough Sports team who ran out 8-0 winners on the night.
