Premier Division

Anglers FC  1-3  Hykeham Town TRFC

Goals from Murphy, Driver, and Dickinson recorded the victory for the team who are closing in on the championship in the League’s top Division. Rhodes responded for the current champions when the two teams met at Saxilby. This result leaves the Hykeham based side needing a maximum of four points from their remaining four games, however should they defeat current leaders Lincoln Moorlands/Railway in their next game then that result would win them the title on the day.

New Swan  2-1  Welton Sports FC

A brace from Schofield for the home side gave them a welcome victory at the wrong end of the Division and saw them close the gap between themselves and the team just above them. Welton’s response was a goal from Biggs, awarded after careful thought by the dubious goals panel!

Hykeham Social FC  2-1  AFC Rustons

We all know how football has the ability to throw up strange facts and this happened today with the results of the teams placed in the top two places. Prior to the game leaders AFC Rustons had not lost a League game all Season and second placed Nettleham had lost just two. What odds I wonder that both would suffer defeats today? Well that is exactly what happened.

A first half header from Taylor just before the break cancelled out an unfortunate own goal by Ross to see the sides go into the break all square. In the second half Wilson settled things for the home side to inflict the first League defeat of the Season for the current Division leaders.

Nettleham FC  3-5  Waddington United

Second placed Nettleham came unstuck for only the third time in the League this Season despite two goals from Park and a goal from Kerrigan.

Dunston FC  1-1  Coningsby FC

After a goal less first 45 minutes Dunston took the lead from the penalty spot when Masters slotted home. With the game virtually finished Sewell scored for the visitors with the last kick of the game to ensure that his side earned a point from what looked for much of the second half as a lost cause.

Runaway leaders for now at least, Morning Star, added to their points tally with another maximum haul after Walukiewicz gave them a first half lead before Heron leveled before the break.

Ruskington Lions  11-1  Queen Athletic

It is not often that any team has three hat-trick heroes in their team but the Lions managed that today with Cooper, Green, and Jackson all bagging one against Queen.

The Sports Bar  2-3  Broadley FC
