UHLSPORT UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE-PREMIER DIVISION SOUTH
BUGBROOKE ST MICHAELS 7-2 BIGGLESWADE UNITED
Biggleswade were back in Northamptonshire hoping to build on their 3-0 win at Chenecks and made a great start when Charlie Clayton gave them the lead with a close range finish on 8 minutes, but after missing a few chances, the Badgers were level on 20 when Greg Ling converted from close range. Joel Gyasi netted his first goal for Bugbrooke with a far post finish on 25 and ten minutes later the visitors were reduced to ten men after Kye Andrews handled the ball in the area and Eddie Panter tucked away the penalty. Ling got his second as half-time approached with a shot from outside the box that squeezed past Oli Leslie in the United goal and it was five on 43 when Curtis Avery headed home a corner from close range. A well taken goal from Taylor Rhiney reduced the arrears with 76 minutes gone, but Panter netted his second penalty of the game a minute later after Dan Porter had been fouled. Dan Field added a seventh late on when he slid the ball home from close range after a deflected free kick had fallen nicely for him to round off a big win for the Badgers.
COGENHOE UNITED 2-2 COVENTRY UNITED
The Cooks brought their losing streak to an end with a creditable point against sixth place Coventry United at Compton Park. The visitors held the lead at the break through a Kyle Carey penalty on the half-hour mark, but the home side fought back to level thanks to Ryan Archer’s first goal for the club with a close range finish on 62, then they took the lead on 72 when Joe Cairns headed into his own net from Tom Wakley’s cross. The points were shared though as Coventry hit back just three minutes later when Curvin Ellis converted from close range to make it 2-2 in a very entertaining afternoon in the Northamptonshire village.
COVENTRY SPHINX 1-0 O.N CHENECKS
Loz Rawlings 51st minute goal proved enough to give Sphinx all three points against struggling O.N Chenecks at the Ryona Engineering Supplies Stadium.
EYNESBURY ROVERS 1-0 G.N.G OADBY TOWN
Oadby were beaten for the second time in four days as Eynesbury triumphed 1-0 at the Alfred Hall Memorial Ground. Jordan Brown scoring the only goal of the game on 28 minutes to give them their first win in ten games and lift them into the top half of the table.
LUTTERWORTH TOWN 2-1 GODMANCHESTER ROVERS
Lutterworth Town were given a tough game by Godmanchester, but ran out 2-1 winners to move back above Newport Pagnell who were without a scheduled fixture today. Daniel Baulk had given the visitors a second minute lead, but Marshal Keenan equalised on 28 minutes and leading scorer Tendai Daire popped up with the winning goal ten minutes from time.
PETERBOROUGH NORTHERN STAR 0-1 HINCKLEY LRFC
Hinckley LRFC maintained their 100% record, but it was the closest they have come to not winning against a dogged Pterborough Northern Star team who were 44 points behind them at kick-off. 89 minutes had passed without a goal, but then substitute Liam Read made a run into the box that saw him upended and Matt Langham netted the penalty that moves them eight points clear of the inactive Harborough Town.
POTTON UNITED 4-0 ROTHWELL CORINTHIANS
Potton brushed aside Rothwell Corinthians with an impressive 4-0 win at Hutchinson Hollow. Sam Dowridge, Isaac Charles, Jack Thomas (via a deflection) and Aaron McArdle shared the goals out between them.
RUGBY TOWN 4-2 DESBOROUGH TOWN
Luke English made it two in two when he curled home a shot from the edge of the box with just two minutes played, but Ar Tarn skipper Aaron Davies levelled things up three minutes later when he hooked the ball high into the net following a corner. Desborough then took the lead on 20 minutes when Barnes Gladman netted his first for the club with a simple finish from close range. A major turning point came on 37 when an altercation in the visitor’s box resulted in keeper Chris Jones being shown a second yellow card of the game. The Valley equalised on the stroke of half-time when a James Hancocks free-kick took a deflection to beat the stand-in keeper to send the teams into the break at 2-2 with all to play for in the second half. Brilliant defending by Desborough, especially with an out-field player in goal, looked like it was going to earn them a point against the odds, but with 88 minutes on the clock David Kolodynski met Owen Bennett’s cross from the left with a powerful header to edge them in front and then Kolodynski struck again in stoppage time when he lobbed the ball over the keeper after being played through one-on-one.
WELLINGBOROUGH TOWN 0-0 EASINGTON SPORTS
Wellingborough Town remain fifth after being held to a goalless draw by Easington Sports at the Dog & Duck.
