Chippenham West End 4 Staverton FC 6
CHIPPENHAM West End and Staverton FC provided a 10-goal feast at Atworth in a match that was only decided in the closing stages as they came from 4-3 down to win a thriller 6-4.
Alex Richards put Staverton one up, Ben Hibberd restored parity for Chippenham and Robbie Burton gave them the lead before a second from Richards got Staverton back on level terms before half time.
After the break the goals continues to flow and Levi Woods gave Staverton the lead for the first time when he scored from the penalty spot.
A second of the morning for Hibberd made it 3-3 and as the game ebbed and flowed it was Chippenham who edged in front thanks to a second of the game from Burton.
Staverton quickly fashioned an equaliser when Simon Parfitt netted and them took the lead via a second from Levi Wood before the villagers killed off their guests with a sixth when Richards drilled home to complete his hat-trick.
Goatacre CC 3 Corsham CC Wildcats 5
AFTER taking a 3-2 lead at home to Corsham CC Wildcats fellow cricketers’ Goatacre CC looked to be on course to end a five-match winless run.
But it wasn’t too be as a second-half revival from Scott Fleming’s side saw them hit back to win 5-3.
Corsham went ahead thanks to a spectacular 40 yard strike from manager Fleming. Ross Crichton leveled for Goatacre and Darren Holcombe gave them a 2-1 lead only for Adam Mitchell to draw the visitors level.
However, Goatacre were to net before the break to lead 3-2 with Kieron Gleed finding the net.
The second half belonged to the Wildcats and they got themselves all-square thanks to a second of the game from Adam Mitchell that took his tally for the season to 21.
A deflected Dan King effort put the Wildcats back ahead and a second from King that took him one behind strike partner Mitchell in the scoring charts made up the winners nap-hand.
