In the Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league, My Dixie came from behind against Academy Rejects to maintain their stronghold at the top of the Premiership.
Jamie Riley’s opener was swiftly cancelled out by George Robinson’s equaliser at the other end, before goals from Dan Rowlinson and Jack Hague gave My Dixie a comfortable lead.
Man of the match Ben Smith scored four in the second half while Robinson netted his second of the night, completing a convincing 8-2 win.
There was another entertaining Premiership encounter between Shakthar FC and Litty Commity CF, with player-manager Dale Stewart bagging the only goal of a closely contested first half.
Stewart went on to complete his hat-trick later in the game whilst Ben Sloan’s Shakthar managed a well taken consolation effort from Seamus Kerwick.
In the Championship, FC Flair initially trailled Hedgehog FC by two goals, following strikes from new signing Harry Tann and Charlie Bacon.
However, Hedgehog failed to take their early momentum in to the second half and the game swung in FC Flair’s favour as Zach Ward’s brace was followed up by a goal from Marco Tavares.
And FC Flair maintained the pressure on the former League One champions and celebrated further goals from Charlie Holmes, Josh Ward and Josh Dixon.
A double from Damian Mikulski and a fine effort from Michal Gawron were the pick of the goals in Smakosze St Albans’ 5-0 triumph over new boys “SD & Carlton Cole”.
Francis Mardlin got his team on the board in their encounter with Two Goals One Cup beat Neverbee Athletic 4-1 with two from James Cornwall.
Matt Sutcliffe scored four fantastic goals for FC Big Fan in their tie with BOV Allstars, one of which was an incredible header from 15 yards out, a true goal of the season contender.
Chris Houghton also played a pivotal role for his side between the posts, preventing several powerful strikes from the opposition. Big Fan are now just two points off the leaders with only two games left of the current campaign.
