A quite incredible game in Division Four of the Herts Advertiser Sunday League saw Blacksmiths Res and Hatfield Seniors share 12 goals in an amazing 6-6 draw.

Jamie Bill was outstanding for Blacksmiths, scoring four goals with Lee Greenwood and Ian Hutchinson adding the others.

Blacksmiths’ first team made it into the next round of the Herts Advertiser Knockout Cup with a 3-0 victory over nine-man Colney Heath Sunday.

Goals from Aidan Golds and Jamie Crane gave them a 2-0 half-time lead and Jamie Sharp completed the result in the second period.

But despite their numerical superiority they were made to work extremely hard for the win.

Rhys Jacob was their star player.

Goalkeeper Danny Kitts put in a superb man of the match performance for Royston Rangers Reserves, which included a penalty save in the third minute, but it wasn’t enough to stop Blackboy winning 6-0.

James Townshend hit a hat-trick with Alex Wallace, Jason Bryant and Rory Suttie also on target.

Dagmar 1984 ended St Albans Warriors six-game winning run with an excellent 3-2 win.

Goals came from Jermaine Sandiford, Jordan Lawrence and Sam Tillbrook while Dan Gillians and Jai Want replied for Warriors.

In the Premier Division Brookmans Park left it late to claim a 2-1 win over Phoenix, Callum Baylis scoring twice in the last 10 minutes following an Ally Hill first-half volley.

Relegation haunted Facelad upset the form-book in Division Two by beating promotion-chasing Pinewood 4-2. Star of the day was Darren O’Brien who scored a fine hat-trick with Matt Howell their other scorer.

Royston Rangers continued their winning run with a 5-2 victory against Marshalswick Rovers in Division Three.

Star man Chris Miller scored his first of the season from outside the area and Sam Haldane added to his tally by being in the right place, at the right time.

The prolific Glenn Johnson then went on to claim his second hat-trick of the season.

Rovers’ goals came from Michael Bleach and Luke Tremlett.
