ALL the action from across colts football
BOTH teams fought hard in a thoroughly entertaining match.
Littleport have returned to form this year and some great skill and play from Mitchell Drewitt saw him register a hat-trick. Henry Harrisson netted a fine header and Ellis Yearn extended the lead with a powerful shot. Calvin Lock and Joe Poping completed the scoring. George Thurlow was man of the match.
Bluntisham Blasters 4
Mepal Sports 3
BOTH teams started the match strongly with much of the play being end to end. Bluntisham found a gap in the Mepal defence to take the lead. The home side then slotted another two goals to cement their lead.
During the third quarter a fourth goal went in for Bluntisham. Mepal came out with renewed vigour for the fourth and a goal from Tom Goodjohn put them back in the game. Some good passing put Jon Collins in a position to score again for Mepal and another Goodjohn strike made for a frantic end.
Witchford Colts 4
Mepal Sports 2
COLTS come out firing and found the net after a minute with Henry Green getting the last touch to a Jordan Emms corner.
It was soon 2-0 with Jack Sheridan scoring with a well controlled volley. Witchford made it 3-0 soon after with Henry Green latching onto a pass from Emms to finish well. Jack Sheridan completed the scoring for Witchford in the 12th minute slotting home a nice passing move. .
Ely Crusader 4
Isleham Utd 2
ELY Crusaders will take a two goal lead into the second leg of their cup fixture, after late goals secured a 4-2 home win.
The away team broke the deadlock midway through the opening half as the ball bounced back off of the Ely keeper to present the Isleham forward with a tap in.
James Barrett fired Crusaders level and, boosted by the goal, Ely poured forward allowing Barrett to net his second. A defensive mix up saw Isleham back into the game but Barrett calmly converted his third, to claim a hat-trick and an Isleham own goal late on sealed the win.
Witchford Colts 3
A TOUGH first-half allowed Isleham to take the lead early on, but Witchford battled well with Ruairidh MacDonald equalising.
Isleham scored three more during the second half and Witchford's keeper made some great saves to stop Isleham scoring more. Witchford kept battling and Matthew Ashman and Davie Thompson scored just before the end to mark a spirited fight back. Man of the Match went to Matthew Loades and George Thoday.
Witchford were unlucky not to get something against an impressive Hardwick team. Good passing play early on couldn't be converted into goals for the visitors and the home team broke away to take the lead at half time.
The second half followed a similar pattern with Witchford playing good football and being frustrated by the home keeper. Near the end of the game Hardwick broke away to wrap up the points
