In the Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league, Premiership leaders The Old Guard are on course to win their third consecutive title following their runaway 9-3 victory over Leg Day Pending.
Charlie Lloyd opening the scoring for Old Guard while Matt Hutchinson got Baker’s team on the scoresheet just minutes later.
After that, Guard pulled away with goals from Matt Standen (two) and another from Lloyd.
Leg Day began the second half better and soon found themselves just one goal behind thanks to clinical strikes from Jamie Kamani and another from Hutchinson.
Guard weren’t about to drop any points though and a sensational final 15 miuntes saw them repeatedly attack the Leg Day goal. Standen took his tally to five with Rhys Lawrence and Lloyd rounding off the win.
Knick Of Time overcame Championship leaders Blackpool 5-3.
Man of the match Jamie Southgate gave Dan Winterbourne’s side an initial two-goal lead although a double from Blackpool’s David Willis levelled the scores.
Phil Rands and Andy Lewis increased Time’s lead in the second half.
A valiant effort from Willis enabled him to complete his hat-trick later in the game but Winterbourne’s men defended well to go top of the table.
James Wheeler’s Wheeler Dealers move up to third in the Premiership after a comfortable 2-0 triumph over It’s What He Would Have Wanted.
Well taken goals from Tom Gajjar and Lewis Wheeler earned them the victory.
My Dixie also grabbed victory, beating Smakosze St Albans 4-2.
Ben Smith notched a hat-trick.
Wins for both Neverbee Athletic, over Big Fan FC, and Hedgehog FC, against Old Boys United, keep them in third and fourth respectively in the Championship.
Dan Hedges hit a treble for Athletic in a 4-1 success.
Meanwhile, Charlie Bacon won the points late on for Hedgehog FC.
A goalless first half was played out between Boca Seniors and 20 per cent Battery Left – who were missing influential captain Lewis McAuley.
Dave Beaumont broke the deadlock for Seniors in the second half with the only goal of the game.
