ALL the results from across week two of Colts' football
Cottenham United 0
Haddenham Rovers 1
HADDENHAM Rovers Colts stretched their unbeaten run to 20 matches with a win against Cottenham.
Playing in memory of top supporter, the late Eric Alsop, who died at the weekend, Haddenham were made to work hard as Cottenham defended stoutly.
The game looked to be heading for a draw as Cottenham's keeper continued to prove unbeatable, but Josh Akinwumi had other ideas as he pounced onto a through ball, and rifled the ball into the corner to seal the win in the last minute.
Ely Crusaders 5
ELY progressed to the next round with an impressive win over Brampton. Max Wright cancelled out Brampton's early lead but Ely went to sleep and Brampton scored again to lead 2-1. Ely rallied in the second half and Max Wright soon equalled the score. Ely kicked on from this and Edward Kratz, Sam Lowe and Chris Lewis scored the next three goals to secure the win.
Isleham United 2
Papworth Blasters 7
ISLEHAM lost out against a strong Papworth side.
Isleham started well and came close via a shot from Sean Ward. Papworth pushed forward and opened the scoring after fifteen minutes. Thomas Wade was on target for Isleham and levelled the score.
After the break Isleham struggled to find their form and conceded two goals. The visitors sustained their attack and Isleham soon found themselves 1-7 down. Sean Ward gave the home team a late consolation.
Needingworth Colts 2
Haddenham Rovers 2
TWO hard-working teams cancelled each-other out in a closely fought contest.
Haddenham took the lead with a well worked goal which was slotted home by Tyrrell Barrett. The Rovers' defence, Joe Snooks, Jake Bartolozzi, Felix Peck and John Falconer then came under a period of constant pressure which saw Needingworth equalize with a close range shot. After a mix up just before half time, Rovers went 2-1 down.
In the second half, a corner for Rovers which Drummond curled in was flicked on for Barrett to bag his, and Rovers second, bringing the scores level.
Eaton Socon 5
PORT made the long trip to Eaton Socon and came away empty handed.
Port were short handed with only 10 players and the numerical advantage paid off for the home team who took the lead with a goal on the break. Three further breakaway goals before half time saw Port four adrift.
Eaton Socon added a fifth before the end before Ryan Bamer hit the post late on for Port.
Littleport Town 3
Chatteris Town 3
'PORT and Chatteris played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Port took the lead when a shot from Carl Lightfoot found its way past the keeper. Chatteris came back into the game and scored two quick goals just before halftime. The visitors broke to score a third in the second-half to make it 3-1. Tom Beresford made it 3-2 and then made it 3-3 with the last kick of the game.
Ely City 1
ELY returned to action after not playing since the end of November with a disappointing draw.
Warboys went ahead early after Ely spurned opportunities. Ely went into half time with their heads down but came out in the second half with an early goal from Emson. City put the pressure on throughout the half with chances from Jennings and Emson but Warboys held out for a draw.
Ely Crusaders 1
ELY drew 1-1 against a gritty 'Port side in their first game of the year.
Ely started well and played some good football with only the woodwork and two goal line clearances keeping the scores level. Littleport claimed the lead as a rushed clearance fell to a Port striker who fired back into the goal.
Ely drew level as Alex Brown's fine strike finally broke down the stubborn Littleport defence.
