Watton Utd 0 Redgate Rangers 3

Redgate beat leaders Watton in a fixture which is always a tight and tasty encounter.

Not many chances were created in the first half, with the referee keeping control of the game with five yellows shown between the teams.

Redgate stuck to their game plan, were hard to break down and very dangerous on the break, and on 71 minutes a tired Watton back line were caught on the break with Danny Jezeph clean through.

He went round the oncoming goalkeeper and slotted home calmly.

Watton then lost their discipline with their midfielder shown a straight red with a nasty elbow to Conor Easey leaving him needing seven external stitches, and two more red cards in the last 10 minutes, when Ryan Juby added more goals. This made it nine straight league wins for Redgate and it keeps them in the race for promotion, with the three teams at the top all having to face each other.

Novus North West Norfolk League Division Three

Hungate 0 Denver 9

Denver now boast both the most prolific attack and the meanest defence in the division after taking their tally to 30 goals scored and one conceded in their last five league games.

Two goals in the opening five minutes from PKS Construction/Morris Armitage Denver MoM Danny Brooks set the visitors on their way. Braces from Matthew Wolfe and Ryan Morley made it 6-0 at half-time.

Matty Willis scored twice in seven minutes after the break before Wolfe completed his second hat-trick in consecutive matches to take his season’s haul to 19 in 13 outings.
