A late goal from player-manager Jack Hague helped My Dixie to a 4-3 win over Shakhtar FC in the Premier Division of the Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league.

The topsy-turvy game had seen Harvey Coleman edge Ben Sloan’s men ahead midway through the first half but by half-time Dixie were ahead thanks to two Dan Winwood strikes.

Hague made it 3-1 after the restart but two goals from Seamus Kerwick levelled the scores.

However, Hague took his chance to win the match inside the final 10 minutes.

League leaders Litty Commity CF also won against a Harpics side suffering with injuries.

Oliver Harper scored twice for Harpics but it was Charlie Lloyd’s four goal tally that earned him the man of the match accolade in the 6-2 success.

That was the same score for FC Flair as they beat Clearwater FC.

In the championship Blackpool came from behind to win 4-1 against Hedgehog FC. Paolo Goodman scored twice and there was one each for Karim Winnan and manager Steve Charles.

The other Championship tie between Smakosze St Albans and NBA saw the scores level at 1-1 at the end of the first half and while interim captain Marcin Sternak did a commendable job encouraging the St Albans-based side, it was Michael Owolabi who proved the difference between the sides late on and his brace took NBA to a 4-2 triumph.

In League One, goals from Lewis Voisey, Thomas Lang, Jack Offredi and Jamie Moss gave Volvo Selekt a convincing win over The Toddlers, keeping them top on goal difference above SD & Carlton Cole.

They also won, two goals from James Brookes leading them to a 5-2 success over Boca Seniors. Tom Plain and Neil Layton got Seniors’ consolation goals.

Neverbee Athletic almost produced a stunning comeback in their game with FC Big Fan but just ran out of time in the 4-3 loss.

Dan Allison and the on-form Ricky West had traded goals in the first half but two more for Allison and one from Scott Leger gave Big Fan a 4-1 lead.

But a fantastic team effort and goals from Tom Hickey and Dean Shakespeare got Athletic to within one goal but they couldn’t get a fourth.
