SUNDAY, MARCH 5
CAMBRIDGESHIRE CENTENARY CUP SEMI FINAL
Elm became the KLSL’s second county cup semi-finalists this season after they overcame Fenland Police 4-3 in a highly entertaining game.
Elm found themselves 3-1 down and seemingly out of the cup but managed to roar back to claim a priceless win through Jordan Jolly and a Sam Moses hat trick.
CHERRINGTON CUP SEMI FINAL
Forget Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed, CSKA and England’s Hope are a true heavyweight legacy.
They met again on Sunday at The Cage in the Cherrington semi-final in the latest instalment of their ongoing rivalry.
In a typically fiery encounter both sides went hell for leather to get the victory and it was Hope who drew first blood.
In true CSKA fashion though, CSKA fought back and late in the game Max Mattless equalised to take the game into extra time.
Again, Hope took the advantage in extra time when Ben Jimson gave them the lead for a second time but alas, that man again Mattless nabbed an equaliser late in the game.
In the penalty shoot-out that followed, CSKA prevailed 5-3 winners and confirmed their third final appearance of the season.
QUEEN ELIZABETH CUP SEMI-FINAL
William Burt travelled into the Fens of South Holland to take on Sutton St. James and both sides fancied their chances of making the Queen Elizabeth Final.
William Burt gave it their all but they fell just short at the final hurdle as Sutton St. James confidently won 5-2.
Matty Clayden, Max Burrell 2, Ash Bower and Michael Ocock grabbed the goals to send the Lincolnshire side through to their second final in three seasons.
Travis Mortimer and Dylan Pottle got Burt’s consolations.
March v CSKA Reserves was postponed and will be replayed March 26.
MacMillan really are on a hot streak at the moment and moved off the foot of the table with an emphatic 6-1 home win over CR Eastern.
MacMillan now sit third bottom and occupy the promotion/relegation play-off spot.
Adam Key led the way with a brace with Tommy Jolly, Chris Eley, Jamie Leet and Ian Bootie completing the scoring.
Brad Key got CR Eastern on the scoresheet.
Tydd St Mary, at the 11th time of asking, recorded their first points and win of the league season with a 5-3 win over Lincolnshire neighbours Fleet UC.
The historic win was secured thanks to Josh Leet 2, Ryan Dennis 2 and Darren Andrews.
Fleet certainly made a game of it and scored through Connor Rothwell and Shane Bidwell 2.
