Dan Kovacs was the star of the show for Sportzcoach as he stole the limelight from goal machine Dan Moore.

Despite an action-packed second half neither team could add to the goals and Sportzcoach were the side celebrating at the final whistle.

CROSSBLADES FC, who started the day in the bottom two, conjured up an 8-2 victory at home to Old Road FC and as other results went the way of Tim Chilton’s side it meant that the Blades beat the drop at the expense of their opponents who lost out on goal difference.
Trebles for Carl Jacobi and Sam Thompson, plus singles from Ashley Bartels and Taylor Worthy made up the Blades' eight.
