LYNN & DISTRICT SUNDAY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Our County Cup involvement is over for another season as MacMillan fell at the final hurdle, a feat they can be wholly proud of in their first season.
They drew Long Road Rangers in the semi-final, a team that had reached the final in six of the last seven years, and winners on three occasions.
MacMillan fought the good fight but just couldn’t find a way past the efficient Long Road, falling to a 0-2 home defeat.
England’s Hope continued their streak with another win, making it a perfect 10 wins from 10 games. This time it was West Lynn who succumbed to the power and strength of Hope with a 2-4 home defeat.
They can take solace though in the fact they scored twice, made impressive by the fact Hope have now only conceded nine in 10 all season. Dan Griffith and Will Goldbourn scored for West Lynn but goals from Ricky Gunns, Neil Goodbourn, Lewis Tighe and Ryan Peacock saw the champs home.
CSKA romped to a 0-9 away win over Sutton St James, who continue to impress despite starting with less than 10 each week. Sutton’s never-say-die attitude though can only get them so far and CSKA showed their capabilities by scoring through Arron McKenna 2, Jack Newman 2, Max Matless, Jordan Gould, Kai Ruff, Dave Abbott, and an own goal.
FANG hosted Clenchwarton at Lynnsport and bagged the points via a 4-1 win. Clenchwarton were without six first team regulars but they certainly didn’t let FANG have it all their own way. FANG had to earn their goals, scored through Tommy Rix 2, Steve Pearson and Jack Rawson, before Kyle Williamson bagged a consolation.
CR Eastern maintained top spot with a confident 4-0 away win over Three Holes. CR shared the goals between Liam Manning, Travis Toll, Curtis Morais and Ashley Prosper.
Necton won a close game with CSKA Young Boys, edging it 3-2. Matty Ryan and Aiden Rouse scored for cup-final bound Young Boys but Jamie Titmarsh 2 and Filipe Apolinario got the goals to record the win.
CSKA Reserves went goal-crazy in playing March Saracens and went home 9-0 victors. There were braces for Alex Street, Adam Drew and Joe Woods with singles for Scott Wylie, Jake Ogden and Ashton Hodgson.
Elm kept on CR’s tail at the top with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Shouldham.
Adam Warner notched for Shouldham but Kensey Carter and Anth Horn ensured Elm now sit three points behind CR Eastern with a game in hand.
