LYNN & DISTRICT SUNDAY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
NORFOLK SUNDAY SENIOR CUP QUARTER-FINAL
It took three attempts to get the game on, and on Sunday, Chilvers finally kicked off their quarter-final tie against the tournament favourites, Riverside Rovers.
With the final at Carrow Road, neither team needed any extra motivation to get to the final.
Riverside went ahead early on and Joe Jackson levelled just before half-time. The game was seemingly heading into extra time until the 83rd minute when Riverside smashed a free kick into the bottom corner and sealed the win in injury time with a third. It was a good effort from Chilvers, while Riverside should go on and win it now.
SUNDAY CENTENERY QUARTER-FINAL
MacMillan faced Murrow Bell in the quarters, unknown territory for a side in their first competitive season. But the unknown is providing no fear for MacMillan who triumphed 7-1 to proceed to the semi-final, scoring through Lyndon Woods, Ian Bootie, Gary Green, Matt Retchless and a Ryan Alexander hat trick.
They will face current holders, Long Road Rangers - a side, who in the last seven years, have reached this final six times, and won it three times.
HARDY-SHEEN CUP SEMI-FINALS
CSKA Young Boys became the first team into a cup final this season with a hard-fought 3-0 away win over Shouldham. Shouldham have been the form team lately and will be disappointed to have fallen at the final hurdle. Young Boys’ scorers: Joe Reed, Oli Williams and Aiden Rouse.
Tydd v William Burt was rained off and they will try again this Sunday.
LEAGUE CUP 1ST KNOCK OUT ROUND
The last of the KO Round games was played Friday night at Lynnsport under the floodlights, and Division 2 Heacham knocked out Division 1 Clenchwarton in a controversial game.
Some may say Heacham should have been down to 10 men early on, but they weren’t, and they made it count scoring twice through Scott Deadman and Laurie Hibberd. They now face Old White Bell in the quarters this Sunday.
LEAGUE CUP QUARTER-FINAL
CSKA hosted Elm in an all-Cambs affair between two form sides. CSKA showed their class to win 11-2.
Goals, Elm: Richard Hunt and Ben Pearce; CSKA: hat tricks for Dave Abbott, Jess Hemmings and Arron McKenna. Max Matlless and Jack Newman also scored.
In the ‘royal derby’ Dersingham hosted Flitcham Bell and came away 4-2 victors. Bell will be disappointed not to have pressed on from 2-2 at half-time.
Goals, Dersy Social: Scott English, Gary Bowman, Harry Nash and Sam Peck; Bell: Connor Parnell and Andy Poyiadzis. Dersy stay sixth and Flitcham stay 10th.
It’s now one win in three for leaders CR Eastern as they staged a miraculous comeback to draw 5-5 with Necton who were 5-3 up with only minutes left, scoring through Andrew Westhorpe, Matthew Bond and a Blair Cameron hat trick.
CR Eastern with virtually the last kick of the game rescued a draw to keep them top, but Heacham, if they win their games in hand, will now be able to overtake them.
CR scorers: Nathan Powley 2, Curtis Morais, Paul Moore and Ashley Prosper.
