CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION THREE: Fortune edge Pack Horse in nine-goal thriller
5:30pm Monday 4th March 2013 in Sport
ONE of the games of the week was the Division Three encounter at Stanley Park between Chippenham-based rivals Fortune Inn and Pack Horse Rangers.
What had the potential of being a classic didn’t fail to disappoint as Fortune came out on top of a nine-goal thriller as they twice came from behind to edge a contest that ebbed and flowed 5-4.
Fortune, who had to play Vidas Kubulius in goal for the injured Del Llewellyn who broke his ankle the previous night, fell behind to goals from Ben Butterfield and James Bracey before a Ryan Kubulius effort reduced the arrears.
Pack Horse made a poor start to the second half and goals from Darren Legg who put through his own net and Simon Reid put Fortune Inn 3-2 in front.
Horse them turned things around to lead 4-3 thanks to an own goal from keeper Vidas Kubulius who had an impress game other his slip up and Tom Flynn.
Joe Hylands restored parity for Fortune and with both teams going for the victory a second of the game from Ryan Kubulius saved his dad’s blushes as he netted the fifth and winning goal for Fortune in what was a fantastic derby day duel.
Bremhill View Boys 1 FC Buscots 8
LEADERS FC Buscots were at their clinical best at Garry Marshall’s relegation-threatened Bremhill View Boys, who must have thought that after holding their guests at the break they may go on and get something from the game at Beversbrook.
Buscots were having none of it and a second half goal blitz that saw them net seven times earned them an 8-1 win that stretched their winning run to 14 matches.
Jake Walters saw his opener for Buscots wiped out by Jake Gleed but any hopes of Bremhill pulling off a shock result lasted just a few minutes into the second half when Luke Enderby regained the lead for Buscots.
Luke Enderby scored his second to increase his team's lead and then the leaders cut loose.
A second from Walters made it 4-1 and James Grist added number five before Walters scored his third of the morning to complete the first treble of the game.
Shortly after Luke Enderby completed his hat trick and it was left to Adam Bewley to finish the scoring which he did in style when drove home a 35 yard stunner to make the final score 8-1.
Corsham Park Rangers 3 North Star B 2
CORSHAM Park Rangers kept up their promotion challenge with a hard fought win over North Star B.
Tim Spear’s side had already beaten their Calne based rivals 5-1 and 17-4 this term but they were given an almighty scare by Lee Lovelock’s side who pushed them close before losing out 3-2.
With both teams struggling for players they managed to raise the bare 11 and for the first 30 minutes it was Corsham who had the better chances with two goal-bound efforts being cleared off the line and two shots rattling the woodwork.
Star were reduced to 10 men on 30 minutes when Kieren Smith limped off and with their man advantage Corsham broke the deadlock.
Simon Young got the ball in the middle of the pitch looked up and chipped the ball over the defence to Matthew Spear who headed over the advancing goalie and into the empty net to make it 1-0.
Corsham lost Owen Bryan at half time through injury to be replaced by David Smith.
Star battled hard in second half and were rewarded within five minutes when Micky Taraskevics picked ball up and on the run fired home to make it 1-1.
Corsham regained the lead in the 65th minute when a one-two between Matthew Spear and Kent Kauppinen resulted in the latter finding the net for 2-1.
Corsham thought they had wrapped the game up 10 minutes from when David Smith cut in from the right and his shot went in between the goalie and post.
But Star never give up and were rewarded two minutes later when Taraskevics beat the offside trap to reduce the arrears to the odd goal to set up a nail biting finale that saw both have chances, but finally Corsham ran out 3-2 winners.
Pig & Whistle United A 0 PSC Galaxy 2
PROMOTION hopefuls PSC Galaxy returned to winning ways after last week's surprise draw with Pack Horse Rangers.
