TROWBRIDGE & DISTRICT LEAGUE DIVISION THREE: Heavyweight clash won by Holt
1:00pm Monday 16th December 2013 in Sport
THE top two sides in the division at the start of the day squared up against each other in Holt where Ben Hogg’s table-topping villagers took on second-placed United FC, who were looking to avenge their 3-2 loss from the start of the season.
The result once again went the way of Holt who this time came out on top of a seven-goal thriller winning 4-3.
Goals from Dan Cockeril and Tom Baker put Holt two up before Shavon Allen got United back in the game whe nhe scored from the penalty spot prior to half time.
United restored parity through Jozef Zapotolzny only for Holt to reclaim a two-goal advanatge for the second time in the contest, Jamie Parlour scoring both goals that put the hosts 4-2 up.
A second from Shavon Allen reduced the deficit to the odd goal and made the final minutes interesting, but United were unable to conjure up an equalising goal for the second time in the game as Holt held on to claim their 11th win of the season that saw them open up a seven-point lead over White Horse, who have played four fewer games that the villagers.
Trowbridge Rangers 5 The Lamb Reserves 0
THREE wins from their last six outings would have set Adam Stevens. Lamb Reverses side up nicely for their derby day showdown at the Stallards with Trowbridge Rangers.
James Goddard’s hosts thumped their guests 7-0 in the reverse fixture and Goddard’s men were on top of their game once again as they claimed a double over their guests thanks to a comfortable 5-0 win.
Jordan Field put Trowbridge the lead which was double by Dan Moore and it was game over before half time when Jordan Lukas netted his first goal of the season to make it 3-0.
After the break, Tom Doveton added number four before Dan Moore bagged a second of the afternoon to seal victroy for the home side.
White Horse FC 5 Marshfield FC 0
MANY people’s favourites for the title, White Horse, picked up their ninth successive victory which came courtesy of a 5-0 win at home to Marshfield FC.
The Westbury-based side packed with many experience players are living up to pre-season expectations and as well as scoring goals for fun their defence has to take a lot of credit as another shut out was their seventh clean sheet of the season.
Marshfield had the bare XI travel to Westbury and put up a spirited performance it the first period that saw Stuart Barber’s goal separate the teams at half time.
After the break and as Marshfield started to tire to goals started to flow, Kane Scott doubling the hosts' lead before Marek Mistra turned in the third of the afternoon.
A second from Stuart Barber took it to 4-0 and Paul Beavers with his 11th goal of the campaign completed the winners nap hand.
Zeals FC 4 Polenez Westbury 2
A BATTLING second-half performance from Zeals FC saw them overturn a 2-1 deficit at home to Polenez Westbury and claim a 4-2 win.
Goals from Michael Koszychi and Sebastian Koszychi had helped Polenez into a winning position in a first half that saw Ben Talbot score for Zeals.
Polenez, who were probably the better side in the first half and who started the second period the better of the two teams, were pegged back by Jose Gualda whose fine finish tied the game at two apiece.
A second from Gualda put Zeals in front and when Stuart Plumeridge, on his return from university, grabbed his first for the club Zeals comeback was complete.
